I make these Russian Style Chicken Patties – Kotletki (Куриные котлеты, котлетки) often! Which Russian home doesn’t, really??? They are Absolutely Delicious!
When I started making my own kotletki years ago, I have been staying as close to the traditional recipe as possible by soaking the bread in milk first. But, since I LOVE experimenting in the kitchen and always looking for ways to improve the recipes and add more taste I came up with this foolproof method that I have been following for years!
The “secret” to making moist kotletki is adding some creaminess: sour cream or mayo (for some reason I didn’t like mayo, but it’s up to you), yogurt, buttermilk or even cream cheese, and steaming Kotletki.

My personal preference is to make smaller Kotleti as you see in the video. It makes it easier to shape them, flip them and in my opinion look more elegant served. That’s why I always make Kotletki!
I hope you will enjoy this recipe as much as my family does.
I have included many serving suggestions at the end of the video.
You can make your own ground meat, but it takes time and then extra cleaning. But, by all means, use the method that works for you!
I have made this recipe image to print for myself and display in my kitchen! You can do the same.
