Ingredients

  • ▢1.5 lb (700g) skinless boneless chicken breast
  • ▢2 medium eggs
  • ▢1/3 cup (40g) almond flour
  • ▢1 cup (110g) shredded mozzarella cheese
  • ▢2 Tbsp fresh basil – finely chopped
  • ▢2 Tbsp chives – chopped
  • ▢2 Tbsp parsley – chopped
  • ▢1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • ▢a pinch of sea salt and fresh ground black pepper – or to taste
  • ▢1 Tbsp olive oil – or more to fry

Instructions

  • Place the chicken breast on a chopping board and using a sharp knife, chop it into tiny pieces, then place them in a large mixing bowl. 
  • Into the large bowl, stir in almond flour, eggs, mozzarella, basil, chives, parsley, garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Mix well to combine.
  • Heat oil in a large non-stick pan, over medium-low heat. With an ice cream scoop or a large spoon, scoop into the chicken mixture and transfer it to the pan, then slightly flatten to create a fritter. Don’t overcrowd the pan, cook the fritters in batches, about 4 per batch.
  • Fry until golden brown on both sides, about 6-8 minutes. Keep in mind that you need to cook them at medium-low temp, otherwise they will burn on the outside but won’t get well cooked on the inside.
  • Serve with your favorite dip
