Getting my two and a half year old to eat vegetables is becoming more and more challenging. Somedays he wont go near anything that isn't a hot dog or a nugget.  Needless to say,  it can be very frustrating.  This is my go-to dinner when he is being particularly picky.  Crispy on the outside, while warm and full of flavor on the inside, he thinks it's a nugget.   Dipping in ketchup makes them even better!!  

Makes 4 patties

1/2   cup shredded chicken breast
1/4   cup finely chopped carrots
1/4   cup cooked peas
1/4   cup finely chopped broccoli
1/4   cup shredded jack or cheddar cheese
1      egg
1/2   cup panko bread crumbs (Japanese bread crumbs)
        salt and pepper
        extra virgin olive oil

1.   Mix chicken, carrots, peas, broccoli, and cheese together in a medium bowl.  Beat the egg
      separately.  Add half of the egg to the mixture.
2.   Heat a large skillet on medium heat.  Coat with olive oil.  
3.   Add panko bread crumbs to the mixture, mix well.  Quarter the mixture and form into patties. Add more egg if necessary.
4.   Place patties in skillet and allow to brown.  About 3-4 minutes.  Drizzle the patties with
      a little olive oil and flip.  Cook another 3 minutes until golden brown.  
      Salt and pepper to taste.
