Keto And Diet-Friendly Meal Or Appetizer
Like that of my Chicken Bacon Ranch Poppers, Spicy Salmon Poppers, and 10-Minute Spicy Tuna Rolls, these Cheesy Chicken Fritters are great for holiday parties or family gatherings as they are easy to serve and are perfectly bite-sized!
Serve these Cheesy Chicken Fritters with Spicy Lemon Aioli
To further elevate these fritters, serve them with a Spicy Lemon Aioli. This will add an extra layer of zing to each bite!
We love to pair aiolis with bite-sized appetizers like this one for an extra burst of flavor and an added taste-component! If you are unfamiliar, aiolis are just simple mixtures of mayonnaise, garlic, and any additional ingredients you think would pair well with your main dish. Aiolis are excellent as dips, sauces, or salad dressings!
Aside from adding more flavor, aoili has minimal carbohydrates and provides a dose of essential healthy fats!
