These healthy and flavorful chicken fritters are slightly crispy on the outside and juicy on the inside. The whole family will love this simple weeknight meal. They are great on their own, served atop a salad, or inside lettuce wraps topped with garlic aioli. Play around with the seasonings and cheese to suit your tastes!

Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Combine chicken pieces, salt, paprika, pepper, and garlic powder in the bowl of a food processor; pulse until meat is coarsely chopped into 1/4- to 1/2-inch pieces. Do not over process.

  • Transfer chicken mixture to a bowl. Add mozzarella cheese, mayonnaise, egg, and green onions; mix to combine. Sprinkle protein powder on top and mix together until evenly combined. Set aside for flavors to blend, 20 to 30 minutes; the mixture will be wet.

  • Preheat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Use a 1/4-cup measuring cup to scoop 4 slightly heaping portions into the skillet. Press down on each fritter slightly to form a small patty. Cook until no longer pink in the center and fritters are golden brown, 3 to 4 minutes per side. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).

  • Remove fritters and drain on a paper towel-lined plate; keep warm. Repeat with remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil and chicken mixture. Serve immediately.

The Adjust feature doesn't work correctly; original recipe shows 2 Tbsp protein powder for 1 lb chicken thighs, but changing servings to 4 instead of 8 shows 13 CUPS or protein powder. THAT can't be right! Read More

Thanks for the great recipe! Crispy outside moist inside A nice break from our regular keto dished. I had to make 1 substitution: no green onions so used dried minced onions. It was still fantastic. I plan to make it again but will double it so we have left-overs for lettuce wraps. Read More

I didn't have mozzarella cheese so substituted with another cheese queso de cobra which maybe wasn't the best choice. I also didn't have the protein powder so I skipped it still very yummy! Read More
