      My dear Sharon, I have made this useful recipe for the Cookathon in memory of your darling husband, on Oct 15, 2010. I often have leftover chicken (usually the breast part, as we prefer legs and wings). This is a very practical, quick, easy and usable recipe. I did not make appetizers, but rather large patties, to use for dinner. I formed the patties and put it in the fridge for 1 hour. It was not too difficult to handle then. Rolled it in crumbs, and fried in shallow oil (but a lot of oil). Maybe the original way of making small bites, and then deep-frying, would work far better: I apologise. I really needed to use up the roast chicken breasts for another dinner. I used it skin and all, as all the flavour was on the skin where I'd seasoned it. I also used seasoned salt instead of plain salt: mine contained dried peppadew, dried rosemary, hot pepper and dried garlic. But still, the patties were too bland, even with the mayo mixture I made. I love the idea of mashed potatoes mixed with chopped cooked chicken, and next time will simply add flour (or something) to firm up the patties some more. Thanks, this is an adaptable recipe, and vey, very handy for chicken leftovers!! (Blessings and peace to you in this trying time). Photos to follow: having problems.

      I used leftover mashed potatoes (from Mustardy Potato Pierogies) which had mustard in them. This added a nice flavor to the chicken in the fritters. Amazing. The potato mixture was soft, but I just patted them gently and laid them softly into the oil. These fritters were light, airy, and delicious! I also sprinkled more lemon juice on them when done. Thanks for a keeper of a recipe Sharon. -Bird-

      Instead of balls I made them into small patties and fried for an entree rather than an appetizer. Maybe this would be better if they were baked? The mixture was very wet and difficult to work with but that may be my fault bc I used leftover mashed potatoes instead of following the recipe like I should have! The potatoes really soaked up the oil so if frying you may want to make sure the oil is at at least 375 or 400- trick learned from teenaged fast food employees- less oil is absorbed at that temp. It may also help to form the patties and then refrigerate so that the patties firm up individually. Thanks for sharing this recipe- it has great potential.
