Chicken Corn Fritters Recipe

I've always loved corn fritters, but they weren't satisfying as a main dish. I came up with this recipe and was thrilled when my husband and our three young boys gave it rave reviews. The chicken and zesty sauce make these a wonderful brunch or lunch entree. -Marie Greene, Scottsbluff, Nebraska

I have picky eaters at my house and everyone loved this recipe. I used canned and it worked great.

They always served Corn Fritters with the chicken in a fast food restaurant I used to go to in South Florida and I always loved the combination. I hope these taste the same as those did.
