Here’s a recipe for Cheesy Chicken Fritters:


  • 1 lb (about 450g) boneless, skinless chicken breasts, finely chopped or ground
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped onion
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley (optional)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt, or to taste
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper, or to taste
  • 1/4 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil, for frying

For coating:

  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1 cup breadcrumbs (regular or gluten-free)


  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine the finely chopped or ground chicken, shredded cheddar cheese, chopped onion, minced garlic, chopped parsley (if using), salt, pepper, and paprika. Mix until well combined.
  2. Shape the chicken mixture into small patties or fritters, about 2-3 inches in diameter and 1/2 inch thick. Place them on a plate or tray lined with parchment paper.
  3. Prepare three shallow dishes for coating the fritters: one with all-purpose flour, one with beaten eggs, and one with breadcrumbs.
  4. Dip each chicken fritter into the flour, shaking off any excess, then dip into the beaten eggs, and finally coat evenly with breadcrumbs, pressing gently to adhere.
  5. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Once hot, add the coated chicken fritters in batches, making sure not to overcrowd the skillet. Cook for 3-4 minutes on each side, or until golden brown and cooked through. You may need to adjust the heat to prevent burning.
  6. Remove the cooked fritters from the skillet and place them on a plate lined with paper towels to drain any excess oil.
  7. Serve the cheesy chicken fritters warm with your favorite dipping sauce, such as ranch dressing, barbecue sauce, or sweet chili sauce. Enjoy!

These cheesy chicken fritters are perfect as an appetizer, snack, or even as a main dish served with a side salad or vegetables. Enjoy!
