Thai Chicken Balls


  • In a large bowl, mix together the chicken and bread crumbs.
  • Season with green onion, ground coriander, cilantro, chilli sauce and lemon juice; mix well.
  • Using damp hands, form mixture into evenly shaped balls that are either small enough to eat with your fingers, or large enough to use as burgers.
  • Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat.
  • Fry the chicken balls in batches until well browned all over.
  • Tips: if serving with rice, add a dip of sweet chilli sauce or skewer for presentation, other sauces like teriyaki or honey teriyaki are a great shout too :-)
