Melissa Jo


  • 4 potatoes peeled and boiled
  • 2 lbs. of chicken breast with rib boiled or baked and shredded
  • 1/4 red pepper diced
  • 1/2 cup of green onions chopped whites and greens
  • 1/4 cup of fresh parsley chopped set aside some for the aioli
  • 4 cloves of garlic minced
  • 2 tbsp. of mayo
  • 8 oz. of Colby jack cheese shredded
  • 1 tbsp. of paprika
  • 1 tsp. of cayenne
  • 1 tbsp. of Adobo seasoning
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 3 eggs whisked
  • 1-2 cups of Panko
  • 1/4 cup of canola oil


  • boil or bake your chicken until it’s cooked through and shred with two forks or blender
  • peel and boil potatoes until fork tender (mash lightly with potato masher)
  • chop all of the vegetables & herbs nice and small

  • heat up the oil in a pan at about medium to medium high heat
  • grab a hunk of the mixture and roll into a ball (the size of a meatball)
  • flatten it out into a little patty
  • dip in the egg; then cover in the panko
  • brown in the pan for about 3-5 minutes per side until golden brown
  • once they are done set onto a plate lined with paper towels
  • serve on top of a green salad, on a bun, or alone with the aioli sauce
  • ENJOY!


Chicken Breast w/rib: In order to save money I bought 2 chicken breasts with rib. You will get the same result in your dish whether you buy breasts or breasts with rib. Here’s the trick to boiling chicken breast.
  • Bring water to a rolling boil and then drop in the chicken breast. Boil vigorously for 3 minutes. Then drop the heat lower to about a simmer and boil for another 7-10 minutes until done.
Cheese: I shredded 8 oz. of Colby jack cheese, but you can use any cheese you like or combination of cheese.
Vegetables: You can chop up any vegetables you like and add to this recipe! It’s a no fail dish! Use what’s in season and chop nice and small and add it!
Aioli Sauce: Don’t overthink this…no measurements needed. Just add ABOUT:
  • 6 tbsp. of mayo
  • minced garlic (about 2 cloves)
  • juice of 1/4 lemon
  • fresh parsley
