Chicken Corn Fritters

“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
