I know this is going to sound crazy but how does this recipe not exist already?!? And how did it take me THIS long to mix latkes and chicken together?!? Okay, I need to calm down. Here’s some blogger truth for you: when I think of a new recipe, I always google it to see if the idea exists already on the internet. Sometimes an original idea is really not so original at all. So when I googled “chicken latkes” and “barbecue chicken latkes”, I found tons of latkes stuffed with chicken or with chicken as a garnish. But stirring the chicken right into the latke batter is alllllll me and I am clearly very excited about it! Okay, now go make these and YOU ARE SO VERY WELCOME.
For this recipe, I used my friend Mendel’s Rabbi-Q Sweet and Tangy Competition Barbecue Sauce. Mendel is the master of barbecue and this sauce is on point. This specific flavor isn’t on the market yet but his original Kansas City Barbecue Sauce is available on Amazon. PS. This blog post isn’t sponsored. I just really like Rabbi-Q barbecue sauce.
Seriously, that color!!!
I love that every bite has potato, onion, chicken and barbecue sauce. Every last bite!
