Chicken Fritters

Author: @benglevy1969 Serves: 3-5 Time: 30′

Difficulty: easy

Ingredients:
1-1/2 lbs     chicken breast
2 large         Eggs
1/3 cup       mayonnaise 
1/3 cup       Flour or cornstarch
1-1/3 cup    shredded mozarella cheese
1-1/2 tbsp   chopped fresh dill
1/2 tsp         salt
1/8 tsp         pepper
2 Tbsp         oil

Ingredients: for Aioli Dip (optional)
1/3 cup   Mayonnaise 
1 garlic clove pressed
1/2 tbsp   lemon juice
Pinch of salt & pepper

Procedure

1. Using a sharp knife, dice chicken into 1/3″ thick pieces and place them in a large mixing bowl.

Tip: If chicken breast is partially frozen, it will be a little bit easier to slice.

2. Into the mixing bowl, add 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.

3. Heat a large non-stick pan over medium heat and add 2 Tbsp oil. When 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 saute 3 min on the second side or until outsides are golden brown and chicken is fully cooked through. Repeat with remaining fritters adding more oil as needed.

4. 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.
