Southwestern Chicken Patties

southwestern chicken patties

Necessity is the Mother of invention. We had big storms move through the Mid-West this weekend, and while we didn’t get hit by them we have had terrible winds.  The lovely winds knocked our power out Sunday, and about the time it came back on it went off all over most of the house.  After several calls, we discovered the wind knocked the line from the side of the house loose causing us to loose power to 2/3 of our house. The only problem is I have about 5 outlets that work, and none of them are really convenient.  The stove is out, so I am working with my griddle, and crockpot.  I am also trying to use what is in the fridge.  Lucky for me my hubby grilled some chicken the other day so I had that to work with.

I had a little helper in the kitchen today helping me make these.  It really tickled her to help me make the dressing to go on them.  She enjoyed eating them even more!
