I love this easy chicken, tomato and olives recipe for summer meals. It's light and quick but looks pretty.

Has anyone tried baking these? They sound great but I try to avoid standing over a hot stove in the summer.

I haven't, but it's worth a shot! You can always try one in the oven or under the broiler, and if it doesn't work, fry the remainder.

They look good. I usually make Indonesian corn fritters which are a great Javanese snack. https://almostitalian.wordpress.com/2014/02/11/charmaine-solomons-corn-fritters-pergedel-jagung/

Indonesian corn fritters can be simplified even further without using egg in the batter, as long as you're careful when adding the combination of flour and (very little) water. The right consistency should do fine in hot deepfrying oil. For the seasoning, I simply use minced garlic and freshly ground coriander and that's it! Perfect afternoon snack in a snap.

Made these last night for dinner and they were delicious! They were actually really good ice cold out of the fridge this morning too. I'll be making them at an upcoming brunch gathering.

So happy to hear this, Josh! We ended up snacking on them all day long. Glad to know they keep well in the fridge—I love these sorts of leftovers straight from the fridge, too.

These look super yummy! Just curious if you think these could be baked in the oven instead of fried? Thanks!

I'm not sure! I feel the heat of the hot oil constrains the batter and helps them keep their shape, but you could always try a test fritter in the oven and see how it does? Or you could try a test fritter under the broiler? If they spread too much, you could try preheating a sheetpan in the oven, pouring a little oil over top, then oven-frying them?

these sound delightful! approx how many cups of shucked corn are produced by 6 ears? thinking these may translate well with frozen corn too for a taste of summer in places not currently blessed with the fresh stuff...

it's about 3 cups, according to Deborah Madison ... I actually didn't measure! I will next time I make these to confirm, but I think 3 cups is a safe bet. Hope they turn out well! Let me know how frozen works if you give them a go.
