  • Author: T B R I C K
  • Prep Time: 10 minutes
  • Cook Time: 20 minutes
  • Total Time: 30 minutes
  • Yield: 16-18 fritters 1x
Scale

Ingredients

  • 2 medium eggs
  • a pinch of sea salt and fresh ground black pepper – or to taste
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 2 Tbsp fresh basil – finely chopped
  • 1 Tbps olive oil – or more to fry
  • 1.5 lb (700g) skinless boneless chicken breast
  • 2 Tbsp parsley – chopped
  • 1/3 cup almond flour
  • 2 Tbsp chives – chopped

Instructions

  1. Place the chicken breast on a chopping board and using a sharp knife, chop it into tiny pieces, then place them in a large mixing bowl.
  2. Into the large bowl, stir in almond flour, eggs, mozzarella, basil, chives, parsley, garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Mix well to combine.
  3. 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 create a fritter. Don’t overcrowd the pan, cook the fritters in batches, about 4 per batch.
  4. Fry until golden brown on both sides, about 6-8 minutes. Keep in mind that you need to cook them at medium-low temp, otherwise they will burn on the outside but won’t get well cooked on the inside.
