These keto chicken patties take just 30 minutes and are only 2 carbs per serving! One patty is hearty enough for lunch—plan on serving two patties for big eaters.

Keto Chicken Patties

We developed these chicken patties using canned chicken breast. However, we have also used 14-15 ounces of finely chopped rotisserie chicken or leftover baked or smoked turkey. For this recipe, you will need an oven-safe pan or a large cast-iron skillet.

Can you make keto chicken patties ahead of time?

Yes, absolutely! Combine the ingredients, form them into patties, and store them covered tightly in the refrigerator for up to 12 hours. You can also freeze them in an airtight container. Use parchment paper to separate them, similar to frozen burgers.

How to make keto chicken patties

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Combine all ingredients, except olive oil, in a large bowl.
  • Next, heat the olive oil in a large oven-safe pan or cast-iron skillet.
  • Form the mixture into 6-7 individual chicken patties, about 1″ thick.
  • Once the pan is heated, add chicken patties and cook for 1 1/2 minutes per side over medium-high heat. Turn them over, and place the skillet in the oven.
  • Bake patties for 10-12 minutes, until they are golden brown, set up, and firm in the center.
  • Remove the skillet from the oven and transfer the patties to a serving dish. Serve immediately with baked vegetables or a side salad.

Storing the chicken patties

  • If you are cooking these keto chicken patties ahead of time, place them onto a wire rack, and let them cool for 20 minutes before storing them in an airtight container. Keep refrigerated for up to 3 days, or freeze for up to 1 month. Thaw frozen patties in the refrigerator for 6-8 hours before reheating.
  • Reheat in an oiled skillet until they are warmed through (internal temperature of 160 degrees F).
