Frequently Asked Questions:

            Which cut of chicken should I use?

Well, this recipe calls for canned chicken breast. However, I believe you could shred  leftover chicken if you have it and use it. It may be more economical than running to the store. I have actually used leftover thighs and breasts many times for this recipe and the fritters come out delicious every time.

            Do I have to use Dijon mustard in the recipe?

You could use plain yellow mustard if you would prefer, or if you do not have Dijon.

            How do I store this dish?

Be sure that the fritters are cooled completely and then place them into an airtight container and into the refrigerator. They will last for 4 days.

            Can I freeze the fritters?

Yes, you certainly can! Again, be sure they have cooled completely after cooking. Wrap them tightly in foil or place them into an airtight, freezer safe container. You can leave them in the freezer for up to 3 months.
