  • 1 cup mashed potatoes
  • 1 cup chopped cooked chicken
  • 2 small shallots, minced
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped chives
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt

How to make this recipe

  1. In a large bowl, combine the mashed potatoes with the chicken, shallots, egg, chives, salt, pepper and the 2 tablespoons of bread crumbs; mix well. Cover and refrigerate for 2 hours.
