Cheesy Chicken Fritters

Cheesy chicken fritters always get glowing reviews. So if you love easy chicken recipes, this recipe is for you!

Ingredients:
  • 1 1/2 lbs (3 large) chicken breasts
  • 2 large eggs
  • 5 Tbsp (about 1/3 cup) mayonnaise
  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour (or cornstarch or potato starch for gluten-free option)
  • 4 oz (1 1/3 cups) shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp chopped fresh dill
  • 1/2 tsp salt and
  • 1/8 tsp black pepper, or to taste
  • Extra light olive oil, or any high heat cooking oil to sautee

  • How to prepare:
    1. Using a sharp knife, dice chicken into 1/3″ to 1/2″ thick pieces and set aside.
    2. In a medium bowl combine batter ingredients: 2 eggs, 5 Tbsp mayo, 1/3 cup flour, 1 1/3 cups mozzarella, 1 1/2 Tbsp dill, 1/2 tsp salt and 1/8 tsp black pepper. Stir until well combined. Stir in diced chicken, cover with plastic wrap and marinate in the refrigerator at least 2 hours, or overnight.
    3. Heat a large non-stick pan over medium heat. Add 2 Tbsp oil and when oil is hot, add the chicken mixture a heaping tablespoon at a time (I used a flat ice cream scoop for uniform sizes).
    4. Pat down the fritters with the back of your spoon to flatten them slightly. Saute uncovered 3 – 4 min on the first side then flip and saute uncovered 3 min on the second side or until golden brown and fully cooked through. Repeat with remaining fritters. Remove to a paper towel-lined plate.
    5. Serve these chicken fritters with garlic aioli dip if desired and enjoy!! They’d also be great as mini sandwiches (sliders).
