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.

  • 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
  1. Blend chicken, onion, garlic, egg white lemon juice and salt and pepper in a food processor until well combined.
  2. Add cilantro leaves, green peas and carrots.
  3. Add a dash of cayenne pepper.
  4. 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!
