Low carb chicken fritters are one of my favorite, foolproof keto meals to whip up. It's seriously one of the easiest recipes, even my kids seem to have chicken fritters under control, and they aren't able to tie their shoes yet. So you know, that level of easy. You can't go wrong when toddlers can throw a recipe together. For them, prep work is fun stuff. While shredding chicken sounds like a chore to most of us, my kids seem to think it's pretty fantastic. They love to help measure and mix; so with simple meals like this, they become my tiny little sous chefs. Don't get me started on cracking eggs though; we haven't exactly nailed that yet.
Don't forget to PIN it for later!
What are low carb chicken fritters made of?
When it comes to what ingredients to use in low carb chicken fritters, think of it like a chicken salad with an egg mixed in. The combinations are endless! Chicken and mayonnaise, onions and celery, salt and pepper. You can keep it basic or get creative with keto chicken fritters.
For this recipe, I wanted something with a little kick. I just can't seem to get enough spicy foods lately! I added red chili flakes and chili powder to the mix, and it hit the spot. Just shredded chicken, mayo, egg, chili flakes, chili powder, garlic powder, and salt to taste. Combine all the ingredients and form into little fritters in the skillet!
What to serve with chicken fritters?
Chicken fritters are utterly delicious as-is, but sometimes I'll serve them with a mayonnaise-based dip or a homemade low carb dressing. Fresh herbs for garnish are always a winning choice too. Cilantro lime mayo worked well with this spicy chicken fritters recipe, so I'm sure my avocado mayonnaise recipe would be fantastic!

Hi, I'm Tasha–nutritionist, recipe developer, and multi-published cookbook author.
Question , It does not state how many in a serving just that it makes 2 servings per the recipe does that mean one patty is a serving??
Tasha Metcalf says
Hey Debbie! Since I didn't specify the size of the patty in the recipe, I figured people would make them as big or as small as they wanted them. But 1 serving is just half of the recipe.
So for me, I made 6 smaller sized fritters and ate 3 of them. But if you made two large ones, it would still be the same nutrition info. Hope that helps, sorry it was confusing. I have had a difficult time specifying serving sizes since switching to a nutrition label format, but I'll find a way to improve so it's less confusing. 🙂
