Abstract Background



chicken burger

As someone who was recently diagnosed with Mast Cell Activation Syndrome, you can imagine how hard it is now to suddenly become ill to foods I have eaten over the last almost thirty years of my life. While my journey to wellness  certainly wasn't easy, it lead me to create each and every one of these recipes featured on damn good thyme.

One of the biggest things I learned that helped me on my healing journey was to always be prepared with foods that I enjoyed, and that weren't going to trigger inflammation in my body. One of my favorite dinners to keep in rotation are these sundried tomato chicken patties.

These patties bring together the lean, wholesome essence of chicken with the rich, sun-kissed allure of sundried tomatoes, creating a culinary masterpiece that's both hearty and vibrant.

Each bite is a symphony of textures and tastes — the juiciness of the chicken perfectly complemented by the sweet and tangy notes of sun-dried tomatoes. Perfectly seasoned and thoughtfully crafted, these Sun-Dried Tomato Chicken patties are versatile enough to be the star of your dinner table or a delightful addition to your salad. They go great on top of a gluten free bun topped with a balsamic vinaigrette!

Frequently Asked Questions

Storage Instructions

Proper storage is crucial to maintain the safety and quality of these chicken patties. Here are some guidelines:


  • If you plan to consume the patties within a few days, store them in the refrigerator.

  • Place the patties in an airtight container or sealable plastic bag. These are my favorite airtight containers for storage.

  • Refrigerate promptly after cooking. Do not leave them at room temperature for an extended period.

  • Allow the patties to cool to room temperature before placing them in the refrigerator.

  • Hot or warm food can raise the temperature inside the refrigerator, affecting the overall storage conditions.

  • Use airtight containers to prevent moisture and odors from affecting the meatballs.

  • If using plastic bags, make sure they are designed for food storage and are sealed tightly.

  • Label the container or bag with the date of preparation. This helps you keep track of freshness and ensures you consume them within a safe timeframe. These are my favorite labels, as they dissolve in water and are perfect for labeling meal prep containers.

  • If you don't plan to consume the patties within a few days, consider freezing them for longer storage.

  • Use freezer-safe containers or vacuum-sealed bags to prevent freezer burn. These are my favorite freezer friendly reusable bags.

  • For optimal quality, consume frozen patties within 1-3 months.

  • When ready to use frozen chicken patties, thaw them in the refrigerator overnight.

  • Alternatively, you can thaw them in a sealed plastic bag under cold running water.

  • Reheat the patties thoroughly before consuming to an internal temperature of 165°F (74°C).

  • You can use the microwave, oven, stovetop, or any other preferred method.

  • If you notice any signs of spoilage, such as an off odor, unusual color, or sliminess, discard the patties.

  • If in doubt about the safety of the patties, it's better to be on the side of caution and avoid consumption.

Remember that proper hygiene practices, including clean hands, utensils, and surfaces during preparation, are essential to prevent contamination. Following these storage guidelines helps ensure that your chicken patties are safe to eat and maintain their quality.
