Place the mixed seeds in your Béaba Babycook® and pulse a few times, then add the breadcrumbs and parmesan and pulse again. Reserve.
Add the chicken, garlic, cream cheese, parsley and black pepper in your Béaba Babycook® and mix to form a chunky paste – do not over mix, you need some texture.
With wet hands, shape the mixture into 8 patties.
Make space on your bench for three plates: one for the wholemeal flour, another containing the breadcrumbs, seeds and parmesan and a shallow bowl for the beaten egg. Coat the patties in the flour then dip into the egg, then coat with the parmesan seed breadcrumbs. Place your patties on the prepared baking sheet and bake for 20 min, turning once, until crisp.
