What Are Chicken Fritters Made Of?

Traditionally, chicken fritters are made from a mixture of diced or ground chicken, seasonings, and a binding agent like flour or breadcrumbs.

However, for a keto-friendly version, substitutes such as almond flour or coconut flour are used to keep the carb count low. These keto flours provide the necessary consistency and taste without the added carbohydrates found in traditional flours.

How to Store Keto Chicken Fritters

Proper storage is key to maintaining the freshness and quality of your keto chicken fritters. Once cooked, allow the fritters to cool down before transferring them to an airtight container. Store them in the refrigerator for up to 3-4 days.

For longer storage, freeze the fritters by placing them in a single layer on a baking sheet to freeze individually before transferring them to a freezer-safe bag or container. This helps maintain their texture and taste for up to a month.

What to Serve with Keto Chicken Fritters

Pair these keto chicken fritters with a wide array of side dishes and sauces for a delicious dinner. When considering what to serve with them, focus on items that complement the fritters’ crispy texture and rich taste while adhering to keto dietary guidelines.

Vegetable Sides: Add in low carb vegetables like sautéed spinach, roasted Brussels sprouts, or a fresh keto Caesar salad. These sides add a refreshing contrast to the fritters and help balance out the meal.

Dipping Sauces: Enhance your fritters with keto-friendly dipping sauces. Consider homemade aioli, sugar-free ketchup, a spicy mayo, or even this copycat Chick-Fil-A sauce. These dips can add an extra layer of flavor without adding unnecessary carbs.

Cauliflower Mash: As a substitute for traditional mashed potatoes, keto mashed cauliflower is creamy and comforting, making it an ideal side for your fritters.

Zucchini Noodles: Light and easy to flavor, zucchini noodles, or “zoodles,” can serve as a pasta-like bed for your fritters, adding both volume and nutrition to your meal.
