  • - 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • - 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • - 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • - 1/4 cup chopped green onions
  • - 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • - 1 teaspoon paprika
  • - 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • - 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • - Salt and pepper, to taste
  • - 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • - 2 large eggs, beaten
  • - 1 cup breadcrumbs
  • - Vegetable oil, for frying
  • - Ranch dressing or barbecue sauce, for dipping


1. Prepare the Chicken:
   - Trim any excess fat from the chicken breasts and cut them into small chunks.
   - In a food processor, pulse the chicken until finely chopped, but not mushy. Transfer the chopped chicken to a large mixing bowl.

2. Mix the Ingredients:

   - To the bowl with the chopped chicken, add the shredded cheddar cheese, grated Parmesan cheese, chopped green onions, minced garlic, paprika, dried oregano, dried thyme, salt, and pepper. Mix until well combined.

3. Shape the Fritters:

   - Scoop about 2 tablespoons of the chicken mixture and shape it into a small patty or ball. Repeat with the remaining mixture, forming uniform-sized fritters.

4. Coat the Fritters:

   - Set up three shallow bowls: one with all-purpose flour, one with beaten eggs, and one with breadcrumbs.
   - Dip each chicken fritter into the flour, shaking off any excess. Then dip it into the beaten eggs, followed by the breadcrumbs, ensuring it's evenly coated.

5. Fry the Fritters:

   - In a large skillet, heat vegetable oil over medium-high heat until hot but not smoking.
   - Carefully place the coated chicken fritters in the hot oil, working in batches to avoid overcrowding the skillet.
   - Fry the fritters for 3-4 minutes per side, or until golden brown and crispy. Use a slotted spoon to transfer them to a paper towel-lined plate to drain excess oil.

6. Serve:
   - Serve the cheesy chicken fritters warm, with ranch dressing or barbecue sauce for dipping.
