"Faltche fish" - gefilte fish made from ground chicken

helou | Apr 6, 201111:11 AM     39

My mother used to make something we called "faltche fish" - literally fake fish. It was made like gefilte fish but out of ground chicken white meat. I've tried to make this but it comes out dry and a little crumbly. Is anyone familiar with this, and have a good recipe?

I was so spoiled; I never needed to make it (or many other dishes, like stuffed cabbage and blintzes) because my mother always made an extra batch for me, long after I was married and had children of my own.
