Tender, juicy and so flavorful. If you love easy chicken recipes, these chicken fritters filled with cheese and Jalapeño are for you! They make a perfect Keto meal and you can stack them up in your lunch box for easy meal prep during the workweek. Enjoy!


Ingredients:
1.5 lb (700g) skinless, boneless chicken breast, finely diced
2 medium eggs
1/3 cup almond flour or coconut flour
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese, optional
3 Jalapeño peppers, seeded and finely diced
1 spring onion, sliced + for garnish
2 tablespoons parsley chopped
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
A pinch of salt and fresh ground black pepper
1 tablespoon olive oil, to fry

Instructions:
1. 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!

Notes:
Feel free to swap the chicken for turkey.
You can customize the chicken patties with any additional seasoning you like!
If you’ re not on Keto or low carb diet, you can sub almond/coconut flour with all-purpose wheat flour.
