Chicken and Corn Fritters
These fritters are great to make up in a big batch and freeze so that they are ready to be popped into a lunchbox to thaw in time for lunch on those super busy mornings! It's brought to you by the talented Amy Smith from Cooks in Your Kitchen.
Recipe Tester Feedback: "This is one of those recipes where you can add the meat or leave it out for a great vegetarian option. The combination of the spices gives the fritters a warmth not found in 'plain' corn fritters." - Gail
