In a large mixing bowl combine the flour, cornmeal, breadcrumbs, Hidden Valley Original Ranch Mix and baking soda. Gently stir in the egg yolks, buttermilk and melted butter, Add chopped chives, shredded chicken and pepper flakes if using. Beat egg whites until stiff peaks form, gently fold into the batter. To save time I buy rotisserie chicken and shred that up.
I deep fry my fritters but you can pan fry them as well. Drop batter using a well rounded tablespoon into the hot oil. Cook 6 at a time. Fry for 3-4 minutes or until golden brown turning once. Drain Fritters on a paper towel.
In a small mixing bowl combine the mayonnaise, yogurt, Hidden Valley Original Ranch Mix, Parmesan and Dijon mustard. Serve with hot fritters.
