2 cans (12.5 oz. each) of premium chunk chicken breast, drained well

1 egg

1 tsp Dijon mustard

1/2 tsp salt (see notes)

1/4 tsp garlic powder

1/4 tsp onion powder

1/4 tsp black pepper

1/8 tsp dried thyme

1/4 cup plain dried bread crumbs

Additional bread crumbs

Vegetable oil


Drain the canned chicken well and press down on the chicken with a heavy bowl to remove any excess liquid.

Roughly chop the chicken into uniform 1/4 inch pieces to ensure consistent texture in the fritters.

In a mixing bowl, combine the chicken, egg, Dijon mustard, salt, and spices with a fork until well combined.

Stir in 1/4 cup of bread crumbs.

Pour additional bread crumbs into a shallow bowl or pie plate.

Portion the chicken mixture into six fritters and shape each fritter into a tight hockey puck shape.

Coat each fritter with additional bread crumbs.

Heat 1/4 inch of vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium to medium-high heat.

When the oil is hot, pan-fry the chicken fritters on each side until golden brown and crispy.


Garnish with fresh parsley, if desired, and enjoy!


If you don’t have dried breadcrumbs, you can make your own by toasting bread in the oven, then processing it into crumbs.

You can use fresh chicken breast instead of canned chicken if you prefer.

Adjust the salt to your liking. The amount in the recipe is a suggestion, but you can add more or less depending on your taste.
