  • Into the mixing bowl add remaining batter ingredients: 2 eggs 1/3 cup mayonnaise 1/3 cup flour 1 1/3 cups shredded mozzarella 1 1/2 Tbsp dill 1/2 tsp salt and 1/8 tsp black pepper or season to taste. Stir the mixture until well combined cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate 2 hours or overnight.
  • Heat a large non-stick pan over medium heat and add 2 Tbsp oil. When oil is hot add the chicken mixture a heaping Tablespoon at a time. Slightly flatten out the tops with the back of your spoon and sauté uncovered 3-4 min on the first side then flip and saute 3 min on the second side or until outsides are golden brown and chicken is fully cooked through* Repeat with remaining fritters adding more oil as needed.
  • To make the aioli (if using) combine all ingredients in a small bowl or measuring cup and stir together until smooth.
  • Recipe Notes
  • *To test for doneness cut a fritter in half and the chicken should be completely white inside. If your chicken patty is browning too fast adjust your heat down.
  • Enjoy !
