Recipe Notes

I recommend buying the ingredients for this recipe on ShopAIP for the best deal! Follow this link here and use the code SHOP for 10 % off your first order.

I usually shred the chicken breast off of a whole rotisserie chicken for this recipe.  You can also use leftover chicken breast or pulled chicken.

I like using coconut oil for this recipe because it gives the chicken fritters a slight "coconut-y" taste.  If you'd prefer a more neutral taste, you can use olive oil or avocado oil instead.  You can also try using lard.

If you are paleo or Whole30 and can tolerate nightshades, feel free to use any compliant BBQ sauce you want!  My favorites are this one or this other one here.

You can use this same basic chicken fritter recipe with other sauces to create different flavors.  Some of my favorites of Paleo and Whole30 are compliant buffalo sauce, terriyaki sauce, sriracha, or tomato sauce.  For AIP you can try, no tomato sauce or this tasty AIP terriyaki sauce!

Double the recipe and freeze the leftovers! Makes a great easy AIP snack or meal on busy weekdays.  You can re-heat the chicken fritters in a pan with a little oil, the oven, or the microwave.
