These chicken fritters are made with canned chicken that you can find at Costco and are so easy to make! They’re super crispy, cheesy, and go so well with this lemony arugula and tomato salad! YUM!!

Chicken Fritters– makes about 12 fritters


2- 12.5 oz cans canned chicken breast, drained (you can also use meat from rotisserie chicken)

1/2 shredded cheese

1/4 cup mayonaisse

1 Tbsp garlic powder

1 Tbsp onion powder

1/4 grated parmesan cheese

2 Tbsp almond flour

1 egg

EVOO or Avocado oil for frying


  1. In a medium size bowl, combine all ingredients and set aside. (If mixture is too wet, add more grated parm or almond flour to thicken)

  3. Roll mixture into balls or small patties and carefully set in pan.
  4. Cook fritters on all sides until golden brown.
  5. Once cooked, drain fritters on paper towel.

    1. It should!! I don’t own one yet so I’m not that familiar with them. If you try it, please let me know how they turn out. An air fryer is on my Christmas list!!
