Broccoli Chicken Fritters

Here’s a broccoli recipe that’s a little different to the usual – Broccoli Chicken Fritters! The combination of juicy chicken pieces and tender broccoli inside crispy golden fritters is seriously delicious.
Flavoured with garlic and parmesan, these fritters are a tasty meal or snack, or mini burgers. There’s a whole giant head of broccoli hidden in these!!

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again (and will probably keep saying it until the end of time) – you can fritter anything! And today, we’re frittering broccoli and chicken.
Have you ever made fritters with chopped chicken before? I think most people think of using ground/mince meat for things in patty and fritter form, like these Chicken Patties.

Using chopped chicken works a treat – I love how it makes the fritters nice and meaty. Thicker than usual fritters, like my favourite zucchini fritters.

I love how these Broccoli Chicken Fritters are made with just enough batter to hold them together so they’re quite meaty, rather than pancake-like. Not that I don’t love pancakes, but these are intended to be a savoury meal, high in protein and veg!

This combination of juicy chicken pieces and tender broccoli inside a fritter with a copy golden crust is seriously delicious! For a version made with ground chicken (mince), try these Baked Chicken Broccoli Patties.


  • 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
  • 3 - 4 tbsp olive oil
  • 2/3 cup (165g) sour cream or Greek yogurt
  • 2 tbsp ketchup
  • Squeeze of lemon , plus more for serving (optional)


  • 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!

Recipe 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.
