"As a mother of three, I like to make a few batches of these patties at one time and freeze the extras for another meal," writes Brenda Martin of Lititz, Pennsylvania. "I remember helping my mother make big batches, too—there were 11 of us, so it took a lot of food to fill us up!"

"I added cayenne pepper. I also compressed patty after first application of bread crumbs."

"I was the same way in that the patties fell apart. Even tried to flash freeze them first just to give them more staying power, but they still fell apart. Not the texture I was looking for and I followed the recipe to a 't'. I would love to figure out what to do to make them not fall apart."

"I made these twice, thinking I made a mistake the first time because they fell apart, but had great flavor. They do not hold together well at all, but we really like the flavor, so I call it Hot Chicken Salad Sandwhiches."

"It tasted pretty good; however, I must have done something wrong because the patties did not form well. They fell apart when I put them in the bread crumbs and then in the pan. I'm not sure what happened, but it was a disaster."
