Making chicken fritters
In a large mixing bowl, combine minced chicken, onions, garlic, cilantro, black pepper, Italian seasoning, salt, red pepper flakes, cheese, corn flour and eggs.
Set it aside for 30 minutes.
Heat oil in a pan at medium high heat.
Spoon out the chicken mixture and place it on the heated pan.
Gently tap it on top to flatten it a little.
Let it fry on medium heat until it is golden (may take 3-4 minutes).
Flip and cook it on the other side at medium low heat.
Remove it on a plate lined with kitchen tissue.
Serve it immediately with your favorite dip.
Marinate the chicken for at least 30 minutes to an hour.
To make same-size fritters - Use an ice cream scoop or measuring cup to take out the fritter batter.
Pan should be medium hot - While frying the fritters, make sure the pan is medium hot. If the pan is very hot (smoking hot), the fritters will get browned outside quickly but may remain uncooked inside.
Be careful while adding salt to the recipe. Cheese already has salt in it.
You can easily double the recipe.
If the oil is not hot enough and you place the batter on it, the fritters will be greasy. When you place the batter on hot oil it will immediately seal the outer crust making it crisp and less greasy. Also, when you take out the fritters after frying, make sure to drain off the excess oil.
The time to cook frittersdepends on the size of the chicken pieces. If it is finely chopped then it will cook quickly. If the chicken pieces are big it will take more time.
To bake the chicken fritters - Preheat the oven to 200 degrees Celsius. Bake the fritters for 8-10 minutes. Flip it and bake on the other side until cooked.
