The holidays are here and that means holiday parties! Woohoo! These Chicken Cakes with Remoulade Sauce are perfect for all your upcoming holiday parties. These can be served as a main dish or as an appetizer. I made 8 large Chicken Cakes, but you can definitely make them smaller for holiday party appetizers. You can even make the cakes ahead of time and refrigerate or freeze them until you are ready to fry them up!
These Chicken Cakes with Remoulade Sauce are CRAZY good! Chicken Legs couldn't stop raving about this dish. They are so simple to make. Chicken, red pepper, green onions, mayo, mustard, bread crumbs, Cajun seasoning and an egg. The cakes are not spicy. The Cajun seasoning just gives them some flavor.
We served the Chicken Cakes with a super easy Remoulade Sauce. It wasn't a perfectly authentic remoulade sauce, but it was SO good! It would go with just about anything. Make it a day ahead of serving. The flavors get better as it sits in the fridge.

I used half of a rotisserie chicken and some Kikkoman Panko Bread Crumbs in the cakes. The Panko Bread Crumbs were perfect in the Chicken Cakes! The bread crumbs are light and crispy and don't overpower the chicken. I hate when I order crab cakes and they are nothing but breading. The bread crumbs are less dense, so they absorb less fat, cook cleaner and "eat lighter" than ordinary bread crumbs. They really made the difference in the Chicken Cakes.

  6. I use both panko and regular bread crumbs depending on what I am making. Question: how do you think canned chicken would work in this? I have on occasion used it to make chicken salad and it works pretty well. Seems like for this recipe it would be a good substitute. These look so good!
