Tasty chicken balls

all details

Children love finger food. Team these with some dipping sauce such as tzatziki, hummus or even tomato sauce and you're on to a winner. You can add more grated vegetables, try chopped spinach, grated zucchini, diced onion or even chopped green beans if your little Johnny is up for it.

Ingredients

  • 500g chicken mince
  • zest of 1 lemon, finely chopped
  • 50g parmesan, grated
  • 1 carrot, grated (optional)
  • 1 egg
  • 100g (1 cup) dry breadcrumbs
  • 2 tbsp chopped parsley
  • oil for cooking

Method

Preheat oven to 180C.

Mix the chicken mince with all the other ingredients, adding enough breadcrumbs to bring the mixture together. Roll into 2cm balls.

Heat a heavy-based frying pan over a medium-high heat, add a splash of oil and cook the balls until golden brown all over. Transfer to oven and bake until cooked through.

Variation: Substitute lemon zest and parsley for 1 tbsp sweet chilli sauce and 2 tbsp chopped coriander for Thai chicken balls.
