Japanese Style Savory Vegetable Pancakes with Chicken - EwE

This week,  for Eating with Ellie, I got to choose the recipe and I couldn't resist these Japanese Style Savory Vegetable Pancakes with Chicken.  I am not sure why she calls them vegetable pancakes with chicken.  Once there is chicken, we no longer consider them vegetable or at least, I don't.

I loved these.  The taste and the texture were pleasing.  they were good with or without the sauce which was easy to make.

I did sub in chicken for the shrimp which is not kosher, therefore not allowed for us.  I cut two cutlets into small pieces (one half inch) and browned them in a little olive oil.  I added them to the rest of the ingredients at the end.

Japanese Style Savory Vegetable Pancakes with Chicken - adapted ingredients.

This has 2 chicken cutlets
1 bag of shredded cabbage
4 large scallions, chopped
2 medium carrots, shredded
gluten-free flour
low sodium soy sauce
toasted sesame oil
oil for cooking the pancakes

For the sauce:  ketchup, Worcestershire sauce, soy sauce  (it is tasty)

I want to makes these again and I don't think, I would change a thing in the adapted recipe. They are easy to make and except the cooking time which is stretched out because you can only cook a small number of pancakes, at one time, everything goes smoothly.  A success story for out home.

Please stop at our group page and see what the other members have done with this recipe, especially if you are a shrimp lover.  I don't know what the shrimp tasted like in this dish but I do know, the chicken was a winner.

  1. Good to hear you all loved them. It's good to find a recipe that everyone loves! I don't know what egg foo yung is but I will take your word for it.

  2. These sound spectacular! I'd be happy with either chicken or shrimp--what terrific veggie pancakes!

  3. I think mine would have been better with some chicken in them but i liked them just vegetables too. Im glad you chose this. Made me think outside my box as ii might never have noticed these in the book!

  4. Thanks for a great choice! These were fun and voted in as a keeper at my house. I think a little chicken or cooked sausage would be good in these. We enjoyed them according to the recipe and didn't find the shrimp particularly prominent. *Ü*

  5. Glad you liked these Chaya. They weren't for me, but it didn't help that I am bad at cooking this sort of thing.
