How to make chicken broccoli fritters

  1. Chicken breast: Place chicken breast on a chopping board and cut into small chunks. Place the chicken into a food processor and ground. Pulse after 1min or less to create coarsely ground chicken. It is important not to over-process the chicken, so it doesn’t turn into a paste. According to Rena, a perfectly processed chicken should be firm and hold together when pinched.
  2. Broccoli: Separate the florets from the broccoli stem by carefully cutting with a knife. Steam the broccoli for 5-7mins and let it cool. Cut into small pieces and set aside.
  3. Combine ingredients: Using a large mixing bowl, pour in ground chicken, breadcrumbs, broccoli, eggs, dill, season with garlic granules, salt and pepper. Mix until all ingredients are well combined. You can mix with your hands, but first rub some olive oil on your palm so it doesn’t get sticky.
  4. Build fritters: Make patties of about ½ inch thick (this will be about 1/3 cup) and rub oil on your palm after each fritter.
  5. Cook: Place a non-stick skillet on the hob over medium heat. Add 3-4 spoons of olive oil and cook the patties for about 3-4mins on both sides. Serve with your favourite dips or salad.

How to preserve chicken broccoli fritters
