Chicken fritters in barbecue sauce is a delicious dish that can be eaten as an appetizer, snack or main dish if served with rice or salad.
Mixed vegetables are mixed into the patties to add moisture, since chicken has less fat compared to other meats. If I donâ€™t have mixed veggies, I use grated carrots instead.
For the chicken fritters:
500g minced chicken
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1 egg, beaten
1/2 cup minced onion
1 tablespoon minced garlic
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1/2 tablespoon lemon juice
1 cup frozen mixed vegetables
Salt and ground white pepper to taste
Oil for frying
For the barbecue sauce:
1 tablespoon butter
1/2 teaspoon minced garlic
1 cup bottled barbecue sauce
Place the minced chicken, flour, egg, onion, garlic, soy sauce, lemon juice and mixed vegetables in a large bowl. Mix well. Season it with salt and pepper. Cover and refrigerate for 15-30 minutes.
Get 3 tablespoons of the chicken mixture and form a patty. Place it on a floured surface. Repeat this with the remaining ingredients.
Heat the oil in a large frying pan over medium heat. Fry the fritters for 3-5 minutes or until they are golden brown. Transfer them to a colander or plate lined with paper towels to drain the excess oil.
To prepare the sauce, melt the butter in a small saucepan. SautÃ© the garlic for 1-2 minutes or until fragrant. Add the barbecue sauce and let it simmer for 5 minutes or until heated through. Season it with salt and pepper. Serve the chicken fritters with barbecue sauce.
