Ingredients

Fritters:

  • 1 large head broccoli , cut into florets
  • 500g / 1lb chicken breast or thigh , cut into 0.8cm / 1/3" pieces
  • 1/2 cup (75g) flour (any type)
  • 1/2 cup (50g) parmesan cheese , grated or shredded
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 garlic cloves , minced
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • Pepper

Cooking:

  • 3 - 4 tbsp olive oil

Pink Sauce - mix:

  • 2/3 cup (165g) sour cream or Greek yogurt
  • 2 tbsp ketchup
  • Squeeze of lemon , plus more for serving (optional)

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 100C/210F.
  • Steam broccoli until tender, then roughly chop. (Note 1)
  • Add broccoli and remaining Fritter ingredients in a bowl and mix well.
  • Add enough oil in skillet to cover base. Heat to medium high.
  • Dollop 1/4 cup mixture into skillet, then pat down. (Note 2)
  • Cook 2.5 minutes until deep golden, then flip and cook for 2 minutes.
  • Transfer to rack, keep warm in oven.
  • Serve with Pink Sauce!

Notes

1. Broccoli - if you boil it, leave in colander for a while so excess water in florets steams out.
2. Cooking tips - standard ice cream scooper with lever is handy here, it's 1/4 cup. Don't aim for perfectly round, squiggly = more ridges = more crispy bits! Get 2 pans going if you can.
3. Nutrition per fritter, excluding pink sauce. 4 - 5 fritters is sufficient for a meal with sides. Try this Lemon Potato Salad, No Knead Rolls or a quick Irish Soda Bread.
