Asian Chicken Meatballs

Method

  1. Chop the chicken really finely until almost minced (buy chicken mince instead if you don't like handling chicken this much). Place in a bowl.

  2. Preheat oven to 180°C.

  3. Line a baking tray with foil and spray with cooking spray.

  4. Use a stick blender to process the bread to make breadcrumbs.

  5. Add the spring onion, garlic, ginger and lemongrass and blitz to combine.

  6. Place in a large bowl.

  7. Add the chicken, carrot, zucchini, sauces, egg, coriander (if using) and noodles to the bread mixture and mix to combine well.

  8. Use your hands to roll the mixture into golf ball-sized amounts and place on the tray. The mixture might seem sloppy but it will hold together in the oven.

  9. Spray the balls well with cooking spray and bake for 15 minutes.

  10. Remove from the oven, turn carefully, spray again and bake for another 15 20 minutes or until the balls are cooked through.

  11. Serve as is or on a bed of stir-fried Asian vegies with a dollop of sweet chilli sauce. They also taste great popped into Asian soups.
