Sesame Chicken Balls (Frozen)
Towards the end of last year, and in one weekend, we served these to almost 700 people across a number of functions we catered. They all got vacuumed up. Seeing as they were so incredibly popular, we cooked some for you too.
Asian inspired chicken balls are baked, rather than fried, and brushed and sprinkled with hoisin and sesame (I'll leave it to you to work out which is which).
They make an excellent snack dipped in any number of Asian sauces you can think of, or warmed and piled on top of salad. I have also served them to juniors alongside steamed veg of various persuasions.
Importantly, in my stage of life, Sesame Chicken Balls also pass the eat-dinner-from-a-box-on-the-side-of-your-sibling's-sporting-field test, and can be managed in the back seat of a car. Please note that the back seat fares far better when the diner is supportively bucketed by a car seat.
Ingredients: Chicken breast, chicken thigh, bread crumbs, egg, ginger, garlic, miso paste, soy sauce, maple syrup, hoisin sauce, salt, white pepper
