  • 10 ounces boneless, skinless chicken thighs, trimmed of fat and diced into 1/4-inch cubes

  • ½ cup Italian-seasoned bread crumbs

  • ¼ cup chopped onion

  • ¼ cup shredded mozzarella cheese

  • 1 egg

  • ¼ cup mayonnaise

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper

  • ¼ teaspoon garlic powder

  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil


  1. Mix chicken, bread crumbs, onion, mozzarella cheese, egg, mayonnaise, salt, pepper, and garlic powder in a bowl until well combined. Shape mixture into 8 equal-sized patties.

  2. Heat oil in a large skillet. Fry patties until lightly browned, about 5 minutes. Flip and fry for an additional 3 to 5 minutes. Transfer fritters to a paper towel-lined plate.

Cook's Notes:

I used chicken thighs because I think they are more flavorful but chicken breasts will work.

I use Walmart's brand of chicken dipping sauce which is very similar to the one from that famous chicken restaurant.
