These are based on the Tuna Muffin recipe but I made them as patties in my muffin top pan. The flavor is fine but they came out a little tough. I thought they'd be better a little more browned but I see now that they should be baked a little less time. I'd try 15 minutes next time. Frankly, I don't think they're good enough to justify the cost of canned chicken. I don't mind making Tuna Muffins because tuna is relatively cheap.
