Ingredients

  • CHICKEN FRITTERS:
  • 1 1/2 lbs. chicken breasts (3 large)
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/3 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour or cornstarch or potato starch for gluten free
  • 4 oz. mozzarella cheese (1 1/3 cups shredded)
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp. chopped fresh dill
  • 1/2 tsp salt or to taste
  • 1/8 tsp black pepper
  • 2 Tbsp. Extra light olive oil to sauté (or any high heat cooking oil)
  • GARLIC AIOLI DIP (OPTIONAL)
  • 1/3 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 garlic clove pressed
  • 1/2 Tbsp. lemon juice
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/8 tsp black pepper
  • Step by Step Directions

    1. Using a sharp knife, dice the chicken into 1/3" thick pieces and place them in a large mixing bowl. Tip: If the chicken breast is partially frozen, it will be a little bit easier to slice.

      Into the mixing bowl, add the remaining batter ingredients: 2 eggs, 1/3 cup mayonnaise, 1/3 cup flour, 1 1/3 cups shredded mozzarella, 1 1/2 Tbsp. dill, 1/2 tsp salt, and 1/8 tsp black pepper, or season to taste. Stir the mixture until well combined, cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate 2 hours or overnight.

      Heat a large non-stick pan over medium heat and add 2 Tbsp. oil. When the oil is hot, add the chicken mixture a heaping Tablespoon at a time. Slightly flatten out the tops with the back of your spoon and sauté uncovered 3-4 min on the first side, then flip and sauté 3 min on the second side or until the outsides are golden brown and the chicken is fully cooked through* Repeat with the remaining fritters adding more oil as needed.

      To make the aioli (if using), combine all ingredients in a small bowl or measuring cup and stir together until smooth.

      RECIPE NOTES:

      *To test for doneness, cut a fritter in half and the chicken should be completely white inside. If your chicken patty is browning too fast, adjust your heat down.
