Cheesy Chicken Fritters
1 1/2 lbs chicken breasts (3 large) 2 large eggs 1/3 cup mayonnaise 1/3 cup all-purpose flour (or cornstarch/potato starch for gluten-free) 4 oz mozzarella cheese (1 1/3 cups shredded) 1 1/2 Tbsp chopped fresh dill 1/2 tsp salt, or to taste 1/8 tsp black pepper 2 Tbsp Extra light olive oil (or any high heat cooking oil) Garlic Aioli Dip (Optional): 1/3 cup mayonnaise 1 garlic clove, pressed 1/2 Tbsp lemon juice 1/4 tsp salt 1/8 tsp black pepper

Dice chicken into 1/3″ thick pieces and place in a large mixing bowl.

Add eggs, mayonnaise, flour, shredded mozzarella, dill, salt, and black pepper to the bowl. Stir until well combined, cover, and refrigerate for 2 hours or overnight.

Heat oil in a large non-stick pan over medium heat. Spoon chicken mixture into the pan, flattening slightly with the back of a spoon. Sauté for 3-4 minutes on each side until golden brown and cooked through.

Repeat with remaining mixture, adding more oil as needed.

For the aioli, combine all ingredients in a small bowl and stir until smooth.

Serve chicken fritters hot with garlic aioli dip if desired.
