Chicken Donuts

Updated: Aug 9, 2023

I entertain A LOT! Which means I always have to be prepared to make lots of snacks to serve. These Chicken donuts are great because I make and freeze a huge batch of these and they are always popular among the kids and guests. They come together quickly and don't require any special ingredients.

Preparation Time 20 minutes

Freeze Time 1 hour

Cook Time 15 minutes

Makes 12-15 doughnuts


250 grams chicken breast- cubed

120 grams boiled potato- cubed

3 tablespoons spring onion- chopped

1 teaspoon garlic- minced

4 tablespoons breadcrumbs

1/2 teaspoon black pepper

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon paprika

2 eggs

breadcrumbs- for breading

flour- for dusting

Garlic Mayonnaise

3/4 cup mayonnaise

2 cloves garlic- minced

2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice

salt and pepper -to taste


  1. Combine the chicken, potato, spring onion, garlic, breadcrumbs, black pepper, salt and paprika in a food processor. Grind it down to a smooth paste.

  2. Fill a disposable piping bag with the mixture. Tie off the end with an elastic band. Snip off the end.

  3. Pipe small doughnut shapes onto a clingfilm lined baking tray.

  4. Dip your finger in some water and flatten the stops and shape the doughnuts properly.

  5. Freeze the tray of doughnuts in the freezer for 1 hour.

  6. In the meantime, make the garlic mayonnaise. Combine all the ingredients for the mayonnaise in a bowl. Mix well and refrigerate until ready to serve.

  7. Remove the doughnuts from the freezer, and let's start breading them.

  8. Dip the doughnuts in the flour, then into the beaten egg, then into the breadcrumbs. Dip it back into the egg then into the breadcrumbs again. You want to make sure they are double breaded.

  9. Heat some oil in a frying pan to 170c. Fry 5-6 at a time for 3-4 minutes each side until golden brown and crunchy.

  10. Serve with the garlic mayonnaise.

To freeze: Bread the doughnuts and place them on a lined baking tray. Freeze until solid. Place them in freezer bags for up to 3 months.
