Easy Cheesy Chicken Fritters Recipe

These homemade Cheesy Chicken Fritters are easy, delicious, and versatile. They’re crispy on the outside, juicy and flavorful on the inside, and can be adapted for a low-carb or keto diet. Perfect as an appetizer or for meal prep.

My family loves them! Even my husband, who’s not usually a fan of chicken, couldn’t get enough of these. I like to serve mine with creamy ranch mayo but feel free to use your favorite dipping sauce.

Ingredients You Will Need:

(Full Measurements Listed Below)

Chicken: Use boneless chicken breasts or thighs and chop them into small, uniform pieces for even cooking.

Mozzarella cheese: You can use pre-shredded mozzarella cheese for convenience, but freshly grated cheese can offer a richer flavor.

Onion, spring onion, coriander, garlic: Using fresh produce and chopping it well adds a burst of freshness to the fritters

Black pepper and salt: Season to taste, but be mindful of the salt content in other ingredients, like the cheese.

All-purpose flour: Gradually add the flour to achieve the right consistency. Too much flour can make the fritters dense, so add it in small increments.

Cooking oil: Use a neutral cooking oil with a high smoke point, such as vegetable oil or canola oil, for frying.

Mayonnaise, sour cream, ranch, hot sauce.

Egg and lemon.

Let’s Make Cheesy Chicken Fritters – Step By Step:

Step 1: Begin by finely chopping the boneless chicken into small pieces.

Step 2: In a mixing bowl, combine the chopped chicken, shredded mozzarella cheese, finely chopped onion, chopped garlic, chopped spring onion, chopped coriander, crushed black pepper, salt, mayonnaise, and the egg. Mix all these ingredients until well combined.

Step 3: Gradually add the all-purpose flour to the mixture and continue to mix until you have a cohesive batter. The flour helps bind the ingredients together.

Step 4: Heat the cooking oil in a frying pan over medium-high heat.

Step 5: Take a spoonful of the chicken mixture and carefully drop it into the hot oil. You can shape the mixture into fritters with a spoon or your hands.

Step 6: Fry the fritters until they are golden brown and crispy, which should take about 3-4 minutes per side. Make sure the chicken is cooked through.

Step 7: Once the fritters are cooked, remove them from the pan and place them on paper towels to absorb any excess oil.

Step 8: To prepare the dipping sauce, mix mayonnaise, sour cream, ranch dressing, chopped garlic, hot sauce, dried parsley, black pepper powder, lemon juice, and salt in a separate bowl. Stir until everything is well combined.

Step 9: Serve the Cheesy Chicken Fritters hot with the sauce on the side for dipping. Enjoy!

Here Are Some Tips To Make Those Cheesy Chicken Fritters Even Yummier:

Choose Boneless, Skinless Chicken: Use boneless, skinless chicken breasts or thighs. They are easier to work with and result in a more tender fritter.

Mince the Chicken Finely: To ensure the fritters cook evenly and have a nice texture, finely mince the chicken. You can also use ground chicken if available.

Don’t Overmix: When combining the ingredients, mix them until just combined. Overmixing can result in tough fritters.

Preheat the Pan: Make sure your pan or skillet is hot before adding the fritters. This helps them develop a nice crust.

Fry in Batches: Don’t overcrowd the pan. Fry the fritters in batches to ensure even cooking and browning.

Drain on Paper Towels: After frying, place the fritters on a plate lined with paper towels to remove excess oil.

Enjoy Fresh: Cheesy chicken fritters are best when served fresh and hot. The cheese will be gooey, and the fritters crispy.

Frequently Asked Questions:

1. Can I Use Ground Chicken Or Cooked Chicken?

Absolutely! We adore the texture and juicy goodness of diced chicken, but if you’ve got ground chicken or even some pre-cooked chicken, go ahead and use it. It’s all about convenience and what you’ve got in your kitchen.

2. What Is The Secret To Achieving Perfectly Crispy And Tender Cheesy Chicken Fritters?

Compact the mixture well and cook on medium heat for 5-6 minutes per side.

3. Can I Flip the Fritters Before One Side Is Fully Cooked?

It’s best to resist the urge to flip too soon. Wait until one side is completely cooked, and you’ll know it’s ready to be turned when the bottom half is white (cooked chicken color) while the top remains slightly pink.

4. What Type of Skillet or Pan Is Ideal for Cooking Cheesy Chicken Fritters?

A nonstick pan works wonderfully for cooking these fritters. Since the chicken naturally releases some oil, you only need a light coating to prevent sticking.

5. Can I Prepare Cheesy Chicken Fritters in Advance and Freeze Them?

Yes, you can prepare Cheesy Chicken Fritters in advance and freeze them for later use. This is a convenient option for meal prep or quick snacks.

6. What Are the Best Dipping Sauces to Serve with Cheesy Chicken Fritters?

Cheesy Chicken Fritters go well with a variety of dipping sauces, including ranch dressing, honey mustard, barbecue sauce, tzatziki, or a simple mayo-based sauce. Feel free to get creative with your sauce selection.

Happy Cooking And Enjoy Those Delicious Fritters!

I hope you’re having major cravings for these! 😄 But in all seriousness, I truly hope these Cheesy Chicken Fritters become a new favorite in your household, just like they are in ours. Enjoy! 🍗🧀👩‍🍳
