Instructions

Step 1

Whisk together milk and eggs in a large bowl. Gradually whisk in flour, until smooth and well combined. Add chicken, corn, capsicum, coriander and chilli.

Step 2

Spray a large frying pan with oil and place over medium-high heat. Spoon 1/4 cup of mixture per fritter into the pan, 3 fritters at a time. Cook for 3 minutes each side, or until golden and cooked through. Continue with remaining batter to make 12 fritters, spraying pan with more oil, if necessary. Serve fritters with tomato relish and a green salad.

Variations

If you are short on time, try using tinned chicken. Also, try substituting a roasted capsicum for the raw one for extra flavour.
