I've always loved corn fritters, but they weren't satisfying as a main dish. I came up with this recipe and was thrilled when my husband and our three young boys gave it rave reviews. The chicken and zesty sauce make these a wonderful brunch or lunch entree.

Place corn in a large bowl; lightly crush with a potato masher. Stir in the chicken, egg, milk, butter, salt and pepper. Combine flour and baking powder; stir into the corn mixture just until combined.
In a deep-fat fryer or skillet, heat 2 in. of oil to 375°. Drop batter by 1/4 cupfuls into oil. Fry for 3 minutes on each side or until golden brown. Drain on paper towels; keep warm.
In a large saucepan, melt butter over medium-low heat. Stir in flour and seasonings until smooth. Add chiles. Gradually stir in milk. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Serve with corn fritters; sprinkle with cheese if desired.
