CHICKEN AND ZUCCHINI FRITTERS

  I haven’t had a fritter for years. My grandfather used to make potato fritters (or potato pancakes) and we used to gobble them up! They were so. darn. delicious.
  So tonight I whipped up a batch of chicken zucchini fritters to satisfy my craving for the delicious potato-ey goodness my grandpa used to make. 
(Side note: I would have actually made his “potato pancakes” but alas, I have no potatoes in the house)
  My family and I probably ate one too many of them, but let me tell you…..so worth it!
  Fritters are pretty versatile, so add what you like, I’m sure they will be amazing. And while you’re at it, dip it in some avocado purée or a garlic aoili.

    Could you possibly use yellow summer squash in place of zucchini? I have tons of squash, zucchini would require a trip to the grocery store …
