I remember back when I was still working at an office, whenever the diner has meatballs on the menu, what I’ll be having for lunch is pretty much decided. I mean, who doesn’t like meatballs? However, they only serve pork meatballs.
Nothing wrong with pork meatballs, but I’m really a chicken kind of person. Sure, when most people think of chicken, it’s either dry or bland or both, but this Chicken Meatball recipe by Rasa Malaysia is opposite of that.
Chicken Meatball Recipe
- 500 g boneless chicken
- 1/4 small onion
- 3-4 small garlic cloves
- 1 egg white
- 1 1/2 tbsp lemon juice
- 1 tsp salt
- 3 dashes black pepper
- 10 cilantro leaves, chopped
- mashed green peas
- finely chopped carrots
- cayenne pepper (optional)
- oil for frying
- Blend chicken, onion, garlic, egg white lemon juice and salt and pepper in a food processor until well combined.
- Add cilantro leaves, green peas and carrots.
- Add a dash of cayenne pepper.
- Form into balls and deep fry.
I don’t have a food processor, which would’ve made cooking this Chicken Meatball recipe so much easier, so I bought ground chicken instead and chopped the other ingredients really fine until my hands hurt. Kidding. :D
For someone who likes to cook, I don’t fancy getting my hands all greasy and dirty. So I used two spoons to form the Chicken Meatballs into balls. That’s why they aren’t perfectly round. That, and I don’t have a deep fryer. Yeah, not having a deep fryer is the one to blame! Haha!
Hope you’d enjoy this tasty and juicy Chicken Meatballs as much as I did!
