How to make chicken fritters – Best Tips & Tricks
1. How to prepare the mixture for chicken fritters
As you will see in other recipes, there are many ways of preparing the mixture for the cheesy chicken fritters. But I wanted to make them Ketogenic so I had to stick within the rules and use only approved ingredients.
The first thing to keep in mind is that you need to chop the chicken in very small pieces. Then, add eggs, almond flour, and shredded mozzarella. This will make the mixture hold together nicely.
Next, you need to add the flavorings such as fresh chopped herbs, dried herbs, garlic, chili, salt & pepper, or any other seasonings of your choice.
Mix everything well, shape the fritters and you can make right away or refrigerate them until you’re ready to cook them. You can even refrigerate them overnight, so if you have a special occasion the next day, like a potluck, for instance, you can make them the night before and cook them just before guests arrive.
Now that you know how to make the mixture for chicken fritters, let’s see how you can adapt this recipe to your taste.
