Ideas to serve with delicious chicken fritters
Here are my keto sides that compliment perfectly with yummy chicken fritters:
- Roasted cauliflower
- Roasted aubergines
- Green salad
- Chopped salad
- Grilled or roasted non-starchy veggies
- 1.5 lb (700g) skinless boneless chicken breast
- 2 medium eggs
- 1/3 cup almond flour
- 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
- 2 Tablespoon fresh basil – finely chopped
- 2 Tablespoon chives – chopped
- 2 Tablespoon parsley – chopped
- 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
- a pinch of sea salt and fresh ground black pepper – or to taste
- 1 Tablespoon olive oil – or more to fry
- Take a chopping board and place the chicken breast atop and with a sharp knife cut it into tiny pieces then place the pieces in a large mixing bowl.
- Stir in almond flour, eggs, mozzarella, basil, chives, parsley, garlic powder, salt, and pepper in a large bowl until the mixture is well combined.
- Now, in a large non-stick pan heat the oil on medium heat. Use an ice cream scoop or any large spoon to scoop into the mixture and place it to the pan. Then flatten the mixture to create a fritter. Make sure that the pan is not overcrowded hence cook the fritters in batches. May be 4 per batch.
- Fry for about 6 to 8 minutes until you see the golden brown texture on both the side. Make sure to cook it on a medium to low temp so that it doesn’t get burn on outside.
- Serve with your favorite sauce or a dip and enjoy it with your family.
