Key Ingredients

eggs in an eggs box and glass bowl with other ingredients

Ingredient Notes

Chicken thighs. I prefer using dark meat in this recipe; the fritters stay juicy and not dry.

Corn. You can use fresh or frozen. I used frozen and let it sit in the colander for 10 minutes before using.

Fresh cilantro. This ingredient really brings flavor to this recipe, so don’t skip it.

Cheese. Freshly grated cheddar cheese would work the best here.

How to Make Chicken Fritters

1. Gather the ingredients. Preheat the oven to broil settings. In the food processor, add chicken and pulse until the consistency of the ground meat. In a large bowl, add ground chicken, corn, cilantro, cheese, egg, salt, and mix well.

2. Use a wet tablespoon to scoop eight balls and place them on the baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Use a wet fork to flatten and form in the shape of patties. Broil on the second to top rack position, each side on high for 7 minutes.

Recipe Tips

Use a wet tablespoon when scooping the meat, this way meat won’t be as sticky and you will be able to form chicken patties.

When baking, place a baking pan on the second to top rack position so your fritters will get a crispy coating. Keep a close eye on the baking process to avoid the burn.

Variations. Use chicken breast meat instead of dark meat, substitute cilantro with fresh spring onions.

Storage tips. Store in the air-tight container in the fridge.

How to Serve Chicken Patties

Serve with your favorite sauce or ketchup. Pictured with homemade tartar sauce.

If you want to make a complete meal serve it with kefir mashed potatoes, garlic smashed potatoes, or sweet potato fries.
