Tender Chicken Fritters

The cheese in these chicken fritters forms a crisp outer crust and a lovely cheese pull as you bite into these yummy chicken fritters. Juicy and delicious chicken patties!

This post may contain affiliate links. Read my disclosure policy.

Everyone that tries these cheesy chicken fritters, loves them! They are easy to prepare and very flavorful. The cheese in the batter forms part of the outer crust and a creates an irresistible cheese pull as you bite into these yummy chicken fritters. Marinating the chicken makes it incredibly tender and juicy.

You’ll want to marinate 2 hours or overnight; so there’s a make-ahead option! I served them with a really simple garlic aioli dip but these fritters are still super yummy without the dip (see, I highlighted all of the really important points for my speed readers).

This recipe is really easy to double if you’re feeding a crowd. One of my readers, Nadia, shared these”Kotleti Nezhnost” or Tender Kotleti with us; a recipe her children and family love.

These really are super tender! Nadia used cornstarch (gluten free option) instead of flour but I tested it both ways and I didn’t notice a difference in taste or flavor so you can really use either one for your batter.

Oh and I added some fresh dill which which added great flavor. Somehow dill makes everything taste more Ukrainian. I’d love to claim it as a Ukrainian herb but I’d get hit with a firestorm in the comment section so I won’t go there. lol.

Watch How to Make Tender Chicken Fritters:

Ingredients for Tender Chicken Fritters:

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

How to Make Chicken Fritters (Kotleti):

1. Using a sharp knife, dice chicken into 1/3″ to 1/2″ thick pieces and set aside.

3. Heat a large non-stick pan over medium heat. Add 2 Tbsp oil and when oil is hot, add the chicken mixture a heaping tablespoon at a time (I used a flat ice cream scoop for uniform sizes).

Pat down the fritters with the back of your spoon to flatten them slightly. Saute uncovered 3 – 4 min on the first side then flip and saute uncovered 3 min on the second side or until golden brown and fully cooked through. Repeat with remaining fritters. Remove to a paper towel lined plate.

    I like to add green onion and jalapeno pepper. And I like using cornstarch instead of flour, it also helps to make the chicken juicer! And its better to marinate all night.
    And they’re even better with tzatziki sauce.

    Natasha,
    Your site has been such an awesome go-to for me and my family. I’ve made more things from your site than any other – except maybe Alton Brown So thank you. Thank you for the kulich recipe from which I gifted my neighbors this Easter – every single person loved it (I did add the zest of 2 oranges and really liked the results)
    I wanted to share with you one thing about these fritters and ask one question, and thank you in advance for any reply
    My question is: Have you tried adding any vegetables in these fritters? I’ve thought about maybe adding grated carrots, maybe riced cauliflower, possibly … corn, if some of the water is pressed out? I’m trying to make these a little bit more healthy, because my kids don’t eat enough veggies, but they love these so much I feel like I can use them as a vehicle for health – hah!
    The thing I wanted to tell you about these that I have changed is that I’m using Avacado mayonnaise to replace 2/3rds of the mayo in the recipe, and the difference in flavor is really negligible. I was the only one who noticed it, and I already knew.
    Thank you so much for the time and effort you put in to this website – your content and presentation is so good.

      Hi Marina, the mayo helps to make the fritters more tender and flavorful and I haven’t tested it with any substitutions so I can only guess if something else would work as well. You might try sour cream and a little olive oil, but again, I haven’t tested that substitution myself.

    For some weird reason I used grams instead of ounces and weighed everything but I had chicken from making bone broth and it was more shredded. So when I added ingredients, it was extremely dry…not like photo so I doubled everything to original amount of chicken. The chicken was already cooked. I fried them up and they were perfect. None fell apart as I saw mentioned by some. Used the aioli and they were so delicious. Am going to freeze extra and will definitely make again! Thank you for this yummy recipe!

    This is absolutely my favorite recipe of all time. I have celiac disease so I have to be gluten free, plus I am on a low carb diet. I used almond flour instead of the regular flour and it still comes out great. I noticed people complain about them falling apart – I’ve made this so many times I’ve found by leaving them refrigerated over night, they hold up much better.

    I’ve been pursuing through your site and wish I found this when I could eat like a normal person!! Your recipes all look fantastic and unique.

      Hi Lena, did you possibly have more chicken than the recipe called for? You need enough batter to hold the patties together. I didn’t have this experience in any of my experiments but I also didn’t change the proportions very much. Also, were you using a non-stick pan and enough oil? It helps to cut the chicken into pieces small also.

    Hi Natasha,
    Just A quick ? Would canned chicken work with this recipe?

      Hi Vera, I have not tried this with canned chicken so I cannot advise. If you experiment, please let me know how you like that

      Hi Nita, I love dill but the recipe would still work well without it 🙂 parsley will work also, you could just omit it also if you don’t have any herbs.

      Try some Cajun seasoning instead! Nice and spicy taste, and if you want change cheese to a Colby or Cheddar

      Hi Diane! I haven’t tried to freeze these, but I do think it would work fine to cook them and then freeze the patties, then thaw and reheat over a skillet before serving.

        I’m making these fritters tomorrow. I’m using ground chicken and ground turkey. Also plan on adding chopped onion and perhaps using dill in half of them and another seasoning in the others. Can’t wait. Thanks so much.

    I made these last night. DELISH. But they did not hold together well in the pan. I think I may try making them in the oven and on non-stick foil. (they stuck BADLY to the pan) Also, my husband said shredded chicken would work better.

      June 14, 2018

      Hi Teena, I’m so glad you liked them! With the cheese in this recipe, it is very helpful to use a good non-stick pan. With a non-stick pan, you hardly need any oil at all and they flip easily. Also, let the oil heat up in the pan before adding the fritter batter to the pan – this also helps make it easier to flip.

      June 9, 2018

      Hi, Scheneice! You can omit the cheese altogether. My Mom frequently makes it without the cheese with great results. I’ve had readers substitute the mayo with low fat greek yogurt with great results as well. Regarding the flour, I haven’t tried the fritters without flour myself but a few readers stated they used less flour with good results.
