  • 23 tsp 23 tsp salt

  • 9 oz. 250 g boneless chicken thighs, skinless
  • 113 113 large egglarge eggs
  • ½ cup 125 ml (60 g) fine coconut flour

Instructions

Instructions are for 6 servings. Please modify as needed.

  1. Heat a large, 9-inch (23 cm) cast iron skillet over medium heat. Add in the oil and let it come to temperature while you prepare the fritters.
  2. Add the onion, celery and seasonings to the bowl of your food processor. Process until minced. Add the chicken thighs and the eggs to the food processor and process until a thick paste forms.
  3. Put the coconut flour on a large plate. Scoop two tablespoons of chicken paste, shape into a ball and put it on the coconut flour mound, then turn it over to bread it all over with coconut flour.
  4. Gently toss between your hands to shake off excess flour and place it on the rim of the plate. Repeat until the whole chicken paste is used and all the balls are breaded.
  5. Insert a wooden spoon into the oil to make sure it is hot enough, the oil should sizzle. Add fritters to the hot oil in batches, make sure they are not touching. Fry for 3 minutes each side.
  6. When removing the fritters from the oil use a slotted spoon and place them on a plate lined with paper towel. Repeat until all of the chicken paste is gone. When they are all ready, serve with dipping sauces and enjoy warm.

Tip!

To reheat the chicken fritters, place on a sheet pan and bake for 10 minutes at 350°F (175°C).

If you don’t use coconut flour, you may use double the given amount of finely ground almond flour for breading.
