Serves: About 16 fritters
  • Chicken thighs – 500 gms, boneless & skinless
  • Eggs – 2, large
  • Mayonnaise – ⅓ cup
  • All-purpose flour – ⅓ cup
  • Shredded Mozzarella cheese – ¾ cup
  • Garlic powder – 2 tsp
  • Dried basil – 1 tsp
  • Dried thyme – 1 tsp
  • Dried oregano – 1 tsp
  • Red pepper flakes – ½ tsp
  • Salt – ½ tsp or to taste
  • Black pepper – ¼ tsp or to taste
  • Canola or vegetable oil for shallow frying
  1. Cut the chicken thighs into tiny pieces using a sharp knife. You don’t have to mince them but just roughly chop them into 1-cm long pieces.
  2. Take the chopped chicken in a large bowl and add except oil all the other ingredients to it – eggs, mayo, flour, garlic powder, dried herbs, red pepper flakes, salt and black pepper. Stir the mixture using a spatula really well until all the ingredients are well combined. Cover with a plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 2 hours to overnight.
  3. When you are ready to cook, heat a large non-stick skillet over medium-high heat and add about 2 tablespoons of oil. Take about 2 heaped tablespoons of chilled chicken mixture and roll it into a ball. Then place it on the hot skillet and flatten the ball with the back of your spoon to create the shape of a fritter.
  4. Cook the chicken fritters uncovered on medium-low flame for 5 minutes. Do not overcrowd your pan. If your frying pan is not big enough, cook the fritters in batches.
  5. After the first side is cooked for 5 minutes & turned golden brown, flip the fritters over and sauté the other side for 3 to 4 minutes more until it turns golden brown too and chicken is completely cooked through. To test for doneness, cut a fritter into half and check if the chicken is completely white inside.
  6. Cook all the remaining fritters similarly and once done serve them warm with garlic mayo or tartar sauce on the side. Enjoy!
