Oh P.S. that garlic aoili sauce is all kinds of delicious. It whips up fast (put everything into a dish and stir with a spoon) – easy! You will want to dip you chicken fritters, fries and veggies into it forever and it also works fabulously on sandwiches and burgers. Have you made an aoili before?

This recipe is an oldie, but goodie. I want everyone to discover it! It’s one of those easy chicken recipes you will make over and over. One of my readers, Nadia, wrote in with her recipe for these”Kotleti Nezhnost” or Tender Kotleti, sharing how much her family loved them. Nadia, thank you so much for introducing us to such a delicious recipe that we have made over and over; both for our family and for company.

How to Serve Chicken Patties:

Honestly these chicken patties disappear just as soon as they are out of the pan, but you could serve them as appetizers, between sliders as mini chicken sandwiches or as a side for dinner. These are a crowd pleasing treat and seriously try them with that garlic aioli which is all kinds of yum!

If you’re pressed for time, you can cook this recipe right away after it is mixed but if you are patient or want to exercise the make-ahead option, refrigerate the mixture for 2 hours or overnight and the results will be even more juicy and flavorful.

Can I Use Ground Chicken or Cooked Chicken?

YES! We love the texture and juicy bites of diced chicken but you can substitute with ground chicken. A few readers have also reported good results using pre-cooked chicken. You can use what you have on hand for a quick lunch or snack.

Servings: 8 servings (makes 16-18 fritters)

Ingredients

Ingredients for Chicken Fritters:

  • 1 1/2 lbs chicken breasts (3 large)
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/3 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour or cornstarch or potato starch for gluten free
  • 4 oz mozzarella cheese (1 1/3 cups shredded)
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp chopped fresh dill
  • 1/2 tsp salt or to taste
  • 1/8 tsp black pepper
  • 2 Tbsp Extra light olive oil to saute (or any high heat cooking oil)

Ingredients for Garlic Aioli Dip (Optional)

  • 1/3 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 garlic clove pressed
  • 1/2 Tbsp lemon juice
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/8 tsp black pepper

Instructions

  1. Using a sharp knife, dice chicken into 1/3" thick pieces and place them in a large mixing bowl. Tip: If chicken breast is partially frozen, it will be a little bit easier to slice.
  2. Into the mixing bowl, add remaining batter ingredients: 2 eggs, 1/3 cup mayonnaise, 1/3 cup flour, 1 1/3 cups shredded mozzarella, 1 1/2 Tbsp dill, 1/2 tsp salt and 1/8 tsp black pepper, or season to taste. Stir the mixture until well combined, cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate 2 hours or overnight.
  3. Heat a large non-stick pan over medium heat and add 2 Tbsp oil. When oil is hot, add the chicken mixture a heaping Tablespoon at a time. Slightly flatten out the tops with the back of your spoon and sauté uncovered 3-4 min on the first side, then flip and saute 3 min on the second side or until outsides are golden brown and chicken is fully cooked through* Repeat with remaining fritters adding more oil as needed.

  4. To make the aioli (if using), combine all ingredients in a small bowl or measuring cup and stir together until smooth.

Recipe Notes

*To test for doneness, cut a fritter in half and the chicken should be completely white inside. If your chicken patty is browning too fast, adjust your heat down.

    What is a serving per nutritional information?

      July 9, 2019

      Hi Lori, it depends on how large you make them. One of my readers reported making 25 of them while I usually get 16 to 18 per batch. So if there are 16 in the batch, it would be 2 per serving and if you make them a little smaller and end up with 25, it would be about 3 per serving.

      Hi Valerie! I’m so happy to hear that! cut up veggies sounds great.

These cucumbers would also be really good! I hope this helps.

    Hi! Love this recipe, so easy and delicious! And the dill is my favorite part of it!
    At first, I was having trouble flipping the fritters on the pan because they kept falling apart. So I added more cheese hoping to pull out some moisture. Then halfway through the batter, I realized I forgot the flour. 🤦🏼‍♀️ Haha the flour definitely helped keep them together in the end!
    Thanks for the yummy recipe!

    We eat a ton of chicken in my house as it’s the only protein my daughter will eat. I will say that my hubby was open to it and was very pleasantly surprised! There is definitely something about the smell and the taste that takes me back to my childhood right away, but I can’t put my finger on it. I do not like mayo at all, but you cannot taste it in this recipe. I have never cooked with fresh dill, so I only put half of the recipe amount in because I didn’t know if I would like it or not. I did add some ground red pepper and some Tony’s for flavor. I would think the possibilities are endless with different types of cheeses, different flavored mayos, add a little Tobasco, different spices, etc. I have a body building co-worker who pretty much ate all my leftovers today at lunch! Nevertheless, this will now become a staple in my house and I have already sent this to my sister to tries her best to eat “like” keto for her RA. 30 years from now, we will probably all be acting like this is some old family secret recipe!

    Made it yesterday for the first time. Make it a little larger than on the recipe. I have added one more touch to it. After frying them, I placed them on a baking sheet, covered with sliced tomatoes, put a little more mayo on the top and added more cheese and bake at 350 degrees for maybe 20 more minutes. It was delicious. Great recipe. Next time will stick with the recipe to make as an appetizer.

      Hi Stacy, it might help to chop the chicken finer and also be sure to keep the proportions of liquid to dry ingredients the same so the batter doesn’t end up too loose. Lastly, a good non-stick pan really helps with flipping the fritters so they don’t fall apart.

    Will one store bought cooked whole chicken be enough white meat for this recipe?

      Hi Leta, If you are referring to pre-cooked chicken, I have had several readers report good results using cooked diced chicken. 🙂

    Hi! These look amazing and I am wondering has anyone mentioned a sub for flour that is keto friendly? If so what did they use? I don’t know how almond or coconut flour would be with this! Thanks!!

      Hi Danielle! Several of our readers have reported making these keto. Here is what one of our readers wrote “We LOVE these! I make them a couple of times a month. My husband and I eat Keto style so I substituted the flour for almond flour. I also use precooked chicken…usually the leftover rotisserie chicken from the night before….and they turn out great! Feels like we’re cheating but we’re not. The leftovers are a great take to work lunch as well. Thanks for the great recipe!”

      Hi Doreen, I haven’t tried that but I don’t think these are a good candidate for freezing before frying because they don’t really mold together well until they are fried. I would freeze after frying on this one.

      Hi Dee, I have always used mayo and haven’t really tried any substitutions but a couple of readers reported great results using Greek yogurt, so I imagine that or sour cream would work well.

      Hi Pam, we’ve had great reviews from people using almond flour! Both almond or coconut flour will work, but adjust your heat down a bit as you know almond and coconut flour scorches easily.

      Hi Tina, I think you could make them a little larger and turn them into patties for chicken sandwiches, or even keep them the same size and use them as sandwich sliders. yum!

    I added sweet corn, minced garlic and onions. It was delicious! I only got to referigerate it for maybe 30-45 min though. They seem a bit crumbly and not quite stiff enough to handle without a spatial when they’re done so maybe next time I’ll definitely refrigerate 2 hrs to overnight to see if it binds better. The corn could’ve made it more crumbly though. Maybe I should’ve upped the binder ingredients since I added more solids. I’ll definitely give it another go though. The flavor was phenomenal!

      Hi Penny! I haven’t tested that (baking) so I can’t say for sure but I did have a reader report, “I bake salmon patties, I just make them as usual and bake them on 350 on parchment paper sprayed with a little olive oil for a nice golden brown. Been doing that for years. Now they are a little dryer, but I like my food crispy and fresh.” I hope that helps a little!

    I made the chicken fritters following the recipe and my guests enjoyed them very much. The only variation I will try is with the cheese. The mozzarella flavor is so mild that I could hardly notice it in the final fritter. I plan on trying different cheeses , probably cheddar and/or Parmesan.

        Hi! I am hoping to try this recipe this evening and had a quick question it is just myself that I am cooking for so I have to cut all recipes down and usually for easy chicken recipes like this I use canned chicken (don’t judge 😆) do you think that would possibly work in this recipe? And has anyone else tried cheeses with more flavor if so what kind of cheese? Thanks so much

    These are a great hit! I’ve varied the recipe slightly and used cilantro instead of dill, and I bread them with plain bread crumbs to add extra crispness. I’ve used both a garlic aioli and a cilantro aioli. People can’t get enough of them!
    I am planning on making them into balls and serving with the aioli dip for a party.

      Hi Larisa, 1.5 lb of chicken is about 680 grams so you will probably have to cut down the recipe using 500 grams. I always use diced chicken but several of my readers reported great results using ground chicken substituting in equal amounts.
