1. To make the cheesy chicken fritters recipe: Into a large bowl, add diced chicken, almond flour, eggs, mozzarella, parmesan, spring onion, Jalapeño, parsley, garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Mix well to combine.

2. Heat oil in a large non-stick pan over medium-low heat. With an ice cream scoop or a large spoon, scoop into the chicken mixture and transfer it to the pan, then slightly flatten to make a fritter. Don’t overcrowd the pan, cook the fritters in batches to ensure even cooking.

3. Fry until golden brown on both sides, about 6-8 minutes. Make sure to cook the chicken fritters at medium-low temp, otherwise, they will burn on the outside and won’t get well cooked in the inside. Garnish with more sliced spring onion and serve immediately with your favorite dip: mayonnaise, chipotle aioli, Sriracha or even ketchup. Enjoy!

    I wish this would have just called for ground chicken. I just cut it as small as I could, and they wouldn’t stay together. Otherwise very good tasting.

    Did exactly as written, except I fried then in a bit more oil to make them extra crisp and used ground chicken. Will experiment with add ins next time!

    This was a great recipe! I made it in my waffle iron with rotisserie chicken. So easy and yummy!

    These were fantastic. But instead of stovetop, I baked them in the oven. And I used a mini food processor to chop up/mince the chicken, which made the consistency perfect.

    I loved these. I had left over rotisserie chicken which worked really well. I added red bell pepper and baby kale. The entire family scarfed them down. They will become a staple. Thanks for this awesome recipe!

    I just made these using rotisserie chicken which I cut up in small cubed. I added chopped red peppers and diced fresh spinach. I just put them in the fridge to firm up. Hopefully they will cook without breaking up.

    These were falling apart as I fried them. Taste-wise - turned out pretty bland. Next time, I'd form patties ahead of time and put them in the fridge for an hour or so, and I'd add cumin and other spices.

    One of the best meals I've had in forever! Absolutely perfect combination of ingredients. Can't wait to make them again.

    Great recipe, even with substitutions. I was looking for something to make besides chicken salad with the canned chicken we buy at Costco. So I made these last night, but I substituted drained canned chicken for the cooked chicken breasts. I'm sure the original is even better, but even with canned chicken, my family really loved these. My hubby made a sandwich from the only two leftover ones and said it made a terrific sandwich as well. They tend to be picky eaters, so bonus kudos for wooing them!

    Has anyone tried these in an air fryer or in the oven?

    I parcooked the chicken to be on the safe side. The flavor was fantastic. I had a hard time flipping them because I'm in a wheelchair. I will try to convert them to be cooked in the oven.

    I used ground chicken and whole wheat panko, and it worked great. I left out the jalapenos but added in some chopped bacon. Really good with bbq sauce.

    Used regular flour and ground chicken. These turned out great. Used a large ice cream scoop to help keep the size uniform and pressed them down with a spatula. WOW all around from my family.

    Love these, but had to change a few things. I use regular flour and it works fine. I had trouble getting the chicken cooked before the outside of the Pattie’s got overcooked. It’s also very hard to cut raw chicken small enough. So I Eason and cook the breasts while then shred them. You can’t leave chunks. I actually use a hand spinning processor type gadget. Then mix everything and make Patties. Then they stick like crazy even in olive oil so we moved to a non stick griddle with cooking spray and they come out perfect without sticking.

    Patties didn’t cook well. Not sure if my stove top is off in it calibration or what. It was a mess with no browning at all.

  • Kristen

    The taste was good. I'm not very experienced at finely chopping chicken or jalapeños. It took me 2 hours cook this in batches, and they kept falling apart. I was really frustrated. Next time I'll buy ground chicken and pre-chopped jalapeños.

    I have made something similar that turned out well using canned chicken. It might be good to cut it into smaller pieces. These cook well on a waffle iron like as well.

    I made these, but did not have the fresh herbs, so i chose what i had in my cabinet…. They were still excellent. Thank you

    These look so good!! I'm guessing you use raw chicken breast? Would it work with canned chicken breast?

  • Erin

    These are so good, I have made them twice now and my whole family loves them.

  • Tracey

    2021-04-07 21:59:10

    Are you chopping the chicken up by hand or another way?

  • Nancy

    2021-03-23 11:39:45

    These are amazing! Great for the keto diet. Thank you!

  • Diane

    These are sooo good!! I’m wondering if the patties can be frozen either before they are fried or after? Thanks for a great recipe!!
