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!

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

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

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.

    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. I see that you always follow up people’s questions and are very helpful. Thank you for sharing your talents with us! I will be making your spinach/artichoke dip this weekend. Reply

    Delicious! Mine fall apart when I try to flip them though. What do you think I need to add more of? I used non stick pan. Reply

    • Natashas Kitchen
      January 20, 2019

      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. Reply

  • Teena Dugan
    June 14, 2018

    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. Reply

    • Natasha
      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. Reply

    I would like to know if you can use anything else on place of the cheese, flour and mayo in the cheesy chicken fritter recipe? Reply

    • Natashas Kitchen
      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. Reply

      • Elizabeth
        August 17, 2018

        I really want to make these but I am on a ketogenic diet. Is coconut flour or almond flour a good substitute? Also, thank you for the advice you left in a comment for someone else. I never thought of heating the oiled pan helping with sticking. Does that apply to most things? Thanks! Reply

        • Natashas Kitchen
          August 17, 2018

          Hi Elizabeth. Yes! Many of our readers have reported using almond flour with great results. For the most part yes it is best to keep a consistent temperate from start to finish. Reply

    I have a 26-yo daughter with autism, and it can be a challenge finding something different that she will like. I’ve been wanting to make these for a while now, and finally made them last night. They were a success! Economical too, as I only used about 8oz of chicken and it made enough for the two of us, plus leftovers. The leftovers were really good cold, with some Thai sweet chili sauce for dipping. Sorry, no pictures… Maybe next time 😊 Reply

    So I had to substitute some of the ingredients based on what I had on hand (cheddar instead of mozzerella) and I didn’t have time to marinate them, so they could probably be even better. But man, even with my shoddy attempt these were amazing! Definitely a winner and will be making them again! I struggled a little to get mine to stay in one piece, but that’s probably because of my subs. They were still so delicious and decadent. Definitely give these a try! Reply

    This looks yummy.. except for the mayo my kids are such picky eaters and they despise mayo.. it drives me bonkers.. anything you can substitute for the mayo? more eggs? maybe cream cheese? assuming the mayo is really a binder? Reply

    • Natasha
      natashaskitchen
      January 5, 2017

      Hi Ken, the mayo also 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. Reply

        Hey Natasha – ok so I made these tonigh and I substituted the mayo with low fat greek yogurt. They were amazing.. moist and full of cheese – the boys loved them..

      Hi :). Unfortunately, I don’t have the staff to go through and figure out the nutritive values on all of my recipes. When I need a quick idea of nutritive values, I go to calorie and copy/paste the list of ingredients into their recipe analyzer and that works pretty well. Reply

      August 16, 2016

      31g carbs from the flour, eggs are 1g carbs each, and mayonnaise you’ll have to look on the back and check per tablespoon, because it depends on the brand how much (if any) sugar there is in there. Reply

      Olga, yes they do. You can always test the thickest one to make sure. Reply

    These are really really good, but we make them without cheese, now I have to try with cheese. Love the fact that you included dill…love that herb! Reply

    Hi! Question, why do u think my “partties” got stuck to the pan when I tried to flip them and they were just falling apart 🙁 not enough flour or eggs? I think I had a little more chicken than your recipe called for … Reply

      Hi Luba, it is likely because you had more chicken – 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? Reply

    What an interesting take on a Ukrainian classic. I think Kotleti is one of the things our whole family can agree on so this will be perfect. Reply

    Hi Natasha. My family doesn’t eat mayonnaise. Do you think Greek yogurt would work as a substitute? Thanks Reply

      To be honest, I haven’t tried that variation but I do think it’s worth experimenting 🙂 Reply

    These look amazing! Can I substitute dill with other herb? Reply

      I think parsley would work fine. The original recipe didn’t have any herbs so you could also just leave it out. Reply

    Can Mozzarella cheese be replaced with any other cheese or flavor will be impacted? Reply

      You can substitute it with other cheeses that are mild in flavor similar to mozzarella, but keep in mind some cheeses are more salt so you may want to use less salt. Reply

    Just made these! Delicious! I added extra seasoning so didn’t have much need for mayo sauce after trying the fritters. But they were perfect with a side of young potatoes :)) thank you! Reply

      I’m so glad you enjoyed them! The mayo helps to make them more tender, but yes the recipe still works without it 🙂 Thanks for the awesome review! Reply

        I used the mayo in the recipe! Just didn’t use the dipping sauce:) sorry for the confusion! Reply

    Natasha!!! These are soooo amazing, just made them for lunch, with penne pasta (in a light creamy sauce) and asparagus.. I’m not a big fan of katleti or shnizel/obivnie but these are different, so so juicy and the flavor it’s just good. Thanks again. Love your blog. Reply

      They would be really good with mashed potatoes with a fresh cucumber on the side. Mmmm. They would taste good with most grains; buckwheat, buttered pasta… I hope your family loves this recipe! 🙂 Reply
