°1 1/2 pounds chicken breasts (3 large)

°2 large eggs

°1/3 cup mayonnaise

°1/3 cup all-purpose flour, cornstarch, or gluten-free potato starch

°4 ounces mozzarella (1 1/3 cups grated)

°1 1/2 tsp chopped fresh dill

°1/2 teaspoon salt, or to taste

°1/8 teaspoon black pepper

°2 tablespoons very light olive oil, for frying (or any high-heat cooking oil)

°1/3 cup mayonnaise

°1 pressed garlic clove

°1/2 tablespoon of lemon juice

°1/4 teaspoon salt

°1/8 teaspoon black pepper


Using a sharp knife, cut the chicken into 1/3 thick pieces and place in a large mixing bowl. Tip: If the chicken breasts are partially frozen, it will be easier to chop them up a bit.

In a mixing bowl, add remaining batter ingredients: 2 eggs, 1/3 cup mayonnaise, 1/3 cup flour, 1 1/3 cups shredded mozzarella, 1 1/2 tablespoons dill, 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/2 teaspoon salt.  8 teaspoons black pepper, or season to taste. Stir until well combined, cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate 2 hours or overnight.

Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium heat and add 2 tablespoons of oil. When the oil is hot, add the chicken mixture, 1 tablespoon at a time. Flatten the top slightly with the back of a spatula and fry uncovered for 3-4 minutes on the first side, then flip and fry for 3 minutes on the second side or until the outside is golden brown and the chicken is cooked *repeat with the remaining donuts, add more oil as desired the need. 

To prepare aioli (if using), combine all ingredients in a small bowl or measuring cup and blend until smooth.

Enjoy !
