Ginger Chicken patties on Udon Noodles {#dairyfree #recipe}

The other day I got chicken thighs in anticipation to make some kind of vegetable - curry - chicken kind of stew but it just did not happen.  Do you have those days when you envision this great dish, but then lack complete inspiration to make it?  Well, that is what happened to me.  I thought of my vegetable - curry - chicken stew and was completely uninspired.  Yes,  uninspired an you just know that is not a good premise to start cooking any dinner as it will not turn out. That is at least how it turns out in this house. just not good…

Finally a light went on {at least in my head - I'd say that in German} - ding ding ding - yes, my new fantastic Ninja can do so much more than make smoothies.  Worth a try to chop {grind} the chicken with all the ingredients right in it.  Let me tell you - this was the easiest ever.  The ground chicken sausage - yes, that is what I turned it into - was ready in no time to be formed into individual little patties.  I baked these little beauties, cooked up a pack of Udon Noodles and a successful dish was on our table. Successful = the entire family loved it, and that makes this mothership happy. 

The Udon Noodles with chicken patties bursting with flavor with only one negative side to it.  There were no leftovers since everyone had seconds….
