Kotleti (Russian Chicken Patties) recipe

Servings: 4
Total Time: 1 hour 30 minutes
Recipe by: Frankie


2 slices bread, crusts removed
1/4 cup whole milk
2 TBSP unsalted butter
1/2 medium yellow onion, finely diced
salt & pepper
1 pound ground chicken
1 large egg
1 TBSP sour cream
1/4 tsp dried dill
1 cup dried breadcrumbs
cooking oil


1. Tear the bread slices in small pieces and place in a bowl with the milk, set aside and allow the bread to soak up the milk.

2. Melt the butter in a pan over medium heat. Add the onion and 1/4 tsp salt to the pan and cook, stirring occasionally, until lightly browned, about 5 minutes. Take off the heat and allow to cool, about 5 minutes.

3. Add the cooked onion to a large bowl along with the chicken, egg, sour cream, dill, 1/2 tsp salt, 1/4 tsp pepper, and the bread/milk mixture. Mix until thoroughly until combined.

4. Shape the chicken mixture into patties. Cover the patties and refrigerate for 1 hour.

5. Spread the breadcrumbs out on a plate. Coat both sides the chicken patties with the breadcrumbs.

6. Heat 2 TBSP cooking oil to a large non-stick skillet over medium heat.

7. When the oil is hot, fry the chicken patties (work in batches, you don't want to overcrowd the pan) for 4 minutes, flip over then cover the pan and cook 4 more minutes or until cooked through. Transfer cooked patties to a paper towel lined plate. Continue cooking the remaining patties adding more oil to the pan, if necessary.


I used whole grain sliced bread for this recipe but 2 slices (about 1 cup torn into pieces) of any bread will do.

Keep an eye on the patties while they're cooking, they should be dark brown but not burnt. If they look like they're starting to burn turn the heat down to medium-low.
