Curvy Girl Cooks: Gingered Chicken Cakes with Cilantro-Lime Mayo

Food, Foodie, Food Blog, Chef, Lifestyle Blog, Curvy Girls Cook, Curvy Girlys, This Curvy Girls Life, Chicken, Asian Inspired, Gingered Chicken,

With the Golden Globes happening today, I wanted to nibble on something delicious with an Asian flair. Since I have a vast array of cookbooks, I started flipping through them to see what caught my eye.

I found these little delights in the Hors D’Oeuvres Cookbook. They are perfect little bites to eat while sipping some Stella Rosa wine, which goes perfectly with flavors of the chicken cakes. These are so simple to make because they don’t have a lot of ingredients, but with the fresh ginger, cilantro, scallions and garlic, they have amazing flavor. I can’t wait to watch the red carpet, while eating these delicious morsels.

The great part of making these is that they can easily be made ahead of time or made just before your party since the ingredients are simple and everything goes right into a food processor.

Tip: I reduced the fish sauce to 1 tablespoon because the brand I had one hand was a little salty. Make sure that your fish sauce isn’t too salty, if so reduce the amount.

What will you be enjoying while watching the Golden Globes today?
