1 lb (450g) boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cooked and shredded
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/4 cup chopped green onions
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 cup chopped parsley
2 large eggs
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
Salt and pepper to taste
Olive oil for frying
Prepare the Chicken:
Cook the chicken breasts by boiling, baking, or grilling them until fully cooked. Then shred the chicken using two forks or by pulsing in a food processor until shredded.
In a large mixing bowl, combine the shredded chicken, cheddar cheese, Parmesan cheese, chopped green onions, minced garlic, chopped parsley, eggs, and all-purpose flour. Mix well until all ingredients are evenly combined.
Season the mixture with salt and pepper to taste. Remember that the cheese can add some saltiness, so taste the mixture before adding too much salt.
Heat a skillet over medium heat and add enough olive oil to coat the bottom of the skillet.
Take a spoonful of the chicken mixture and form it into a small patty or fritter shape. Place it onto the skillet. You can adjust the size of the fritters according to your preference.
Cook the fritters for about 3-4 minutes on each side, or until they are golden brown and crispy. Make sure to cook them in batches to avoid overcrowding the skillet.
Once the fritters are cooked through and crispy on the outside, remove them from the skillet and place them on a plate lined with paper towels to drain any excess oil.
Serve the cheesy chicken fritters hot as a snack, appetizer, or main dish. You can pair them with your favorite dipping sauce such as ranch dressing, marinara sauce, or barbecue sauce.
