Baked Chicken & Mozzarella Fritters

The other day I decided to try something a little bit different for dinner. Now, the original recipe called for this to be fried, but as you all know - I am not a fan of following the rules, and nor am I really a big fan of frying anything anymore... I prefer to bake, grill or steam everything these days. So technically, I suppose what I made is not actually a fritter because it was not fried, but who cares right. LOL! The prep work for these is really simple, but needs to be done at least two hours prior, or as much as 24 hours before if at all possible. I did mine probably about 5 hours before I stuck them in the oven.

For the fritters you will need:

......
3 large filleted chicken breasts
1 1/3 cups of grated mozzarella cheese
1.5 cups of freshly chopped dill
(I actually used a lot less Dill because it has quite a strong flavour)
1/3 cup of mayonnaise
2 large eggs
1/3 cup flour
Salt and fine black pepper to taste

🍴

For the Garlic Aioli Dip you will need:

......

1 clove of garlic, crushed
1/3 cup mayonnaise
1/2 tablespoon of fresh lemon juice
salt and black pepper to taste

🍴

So first of all you need to chop the chicken breast
into cubes about 1cm x 1cm and
place it all into a mixing bowl

Then add all the other fritter ingredients
which are listed above -
and mix them all together thoroughly.

Once that is done,
cover the mixing bowl and pop it in the fridge for the 2+ hours.

Now, as I mentioned, these were supposed to be fried,
but I opted for experimenting with the baking route....

So I preheated the oven to 250 degrees Celsius
and placed the oven rack slightly higher than middle.

Whilst the oven was heating up,
I sprayed the baking tray with some "non-stick"
and then placed dessert spoon sized dollops onto the tray,
and pressed them flat with the back of the spoon.

Then once the oven was ready to go,
I popped them in and baked them for EXACTLY
10 minutes per side.

Be sure to put a timer on as mayonnaise can burn terribly

I was absolutely THRILLED that I managed to get such a fantastic result
by baking them rather than frying...

They really did turn out deliciously!
And I will DEFINITELY make them again!

As for the Garlic and Lemon Aioli dip,
it really is just a mater of mixing the ingredients listed above.
No mess, no fuss!

I kept the plate very simple with this and just served it with some chopped tomato and cucumber (mostly because that is my little boys favourite) and some freshly sliced avo.

and that's a wrap!
If you do decide to give these a try,
I would love to know how they turn out on your end ;)

Looks awesome, there is no way I could make that but not because i am a klutz in the kitchen, i just don't have an oven. (by the way you spelled "baked" wrong in your title... but i wouldn't worry about it :) )

hahaha, now you see... I like people like you that help me remove the spinach stuck between my front teeth hahaha!!! Thank you! And as for the fritters... well perhaps YOU could fry them :D

Your posts are really not good for my health, every-time I read them after dinner and instantly become hungry again, and I am trying to eat less!!

hahaha - but they are not unhealthy dishes ;)
As I always tell Jude, "go drink some water" LOL! :D

Appreciate the compliment though xxx

I do like fritters, but I think grilling them is good and can even make them taste the same or even better, they are also great for a road trip, just pull one out and munch away..

Love that idea @wales! As we say here in SA "pad kos"

This looks really delicious!!😋🍗

Thanks sweetie! xxx

@jaynie - YUMMM those look delicious! And I'm with you - frying is a last resort and so many things can be adapted to baking or grilling. I purchased an air fryer a few months back and it hasn't left my countertop since I unboxed it.

I could not agree with you more! Never heard of an air fryer... will have to check that out!

This looks so delicious.. I also make this one but a little bit different way but they are really delicious for snacks...

Oh yes! That is a fabulous idea!!!!! Thanks for sharing sweets! xoxoxo

Yummy!!!!
That's all that really needs saying.

hahaha ;)

Looks delicious, @jaynie. I could really enjoy that meal! 😊

Thanks hon! and if you do... I hope you do! haha ;)

This looks absolutely fabulous!! I don't fry anything, although I was gifted an air fryer, which I haven't tried yet, but, this looks amazingly simple and terribly delicious!

I will be trying this, probably later in the week. Need to get these feet back on the ground, but, I am impressed with this and you plated it up so pretty! Win-win!

Thanks again for your always and forever wonderful recipes. May I have some more wine now?

Looks delicious, very different to what I normally cook, nice to find something different to try.

I agree with that Joan! Being a person that cooks practically 7 days a week I am ALWAYS looking for new things to try lol! Happy to oblige :)

Pffft so I guess I am returning the nice Fry Daddy I bought you for Christmas LOL! I dont even know if you have those over there so my joke most likely bombed! Omg no fried food! No one gets out alive, live it up a little! You know I am just teasing you!

I will admit those really did turn out nicely! I know I would love them!

HAHAHAHA Oh I do fry.... bacon and eggs... all the time! :D
