  • 500 grams /1 pound Chicken mince/ground chicken
  • 1 medium brown onion finely diced
  • 1 tablespoon Crushed garlic
  • 1 teaspoon Minced garlic
  • 1 teaspoon garlic salt or regular salt
  • 1 tablespoon Dried rosemary
  • 1 tablespoon Dried Oregano
  • 1 teaspoon Lemon Pepper
  • ½ cup Panko Bread crumbs
  • 4 tablespoons Olive Oil


  • In a large mixing bowl, add all of the ingredients (except panko breadcrumbs) and mix together with 2 spoons or your hands, making sure everything it thoroughly combined.
  • On a large dinner plate, spread the panko crumbs
  • Take 2 to 3 dessert spoonfuls of meat mixture and form into a round. To even out some of the moisture in the meatballs, roll rissole thoroughly in crumbs and turn over and around until the rissole is all coated. Set aside on a clean plate.
  • Repeat the process and make 5 more.
  • Heat a pan/skillet on the stove on medium to high heat with the oil. Once it is heated, add the rissoles, making sure not to overcrowd the pan - you want to make sure you have enough room to flip them with a spatula and move them around.
  • Cook each rissole for a few minutes each side until they are golden brown, turning with a spatula.


  1. This recipe makes 6 rissoles and Nutrition is per Rissole. 2 rissoles with your choice of side would make for a light dinner.
  2. These rissoles make great leftovers the next day, just reheat in the microwave for a couple of minutes.
  3. You can also freeze cooked rissoles in an air tight container for upto 8 weeks.
