Food Safety

Before you start, wash all surfaces and your hands with soap and warm water, and remember to wash your hands, utensils and cutting boards after they touch raw meat or eggs. Avoid cross-contamination by using a different cutting board for your meat and other ingredients. Make sure you’re cooking to safe temperatures and chilling any leftovers within two hours.

Steps

  1. Stir together sour cream, lime zest, juice and salt. Cover and refrigerate until ready to use.

  2. Heat 1 tbsp (15 mL) of the oil over medium high heat and cook chicken, paprika, cumin, ginger and ¼ tsp salt, stirring often for about 8 minutes or until no longer pink inside. Scrape into a bowl to cool slightly.

  3. Add avocado and corn into the bowl with chicken. Stir in flour and baking powder to coat. Add eggs, dill and zest. Stir in breadcrumbs; let stand for 5 minutes to absorb.

  4. Meanwhile, heat oil in deep saucepan or deep fryer to 365°F (185°C). Scoop out batter in a dry ¼ cup (60 mL) measure and gently add to oil in batches for about 4 minutes turning gently halfway or until golden brown and cooked through. Remove with slotted spoon and serve with Lime Sour Cream.

Helpful Tip

If making them ahead, simply warm through in 350°F (175°C) oven for about 5 minutes to heat through.
