Chicken & Veggie Balls are a huge hit with my kiddos, and so many of my readers on Facebook have made these for their cherubs, and they have gone down a treat too.
They are quick and easy, totally delicious and you can add or omit anything you please.
Great for dinner with steamed veg or pasta for the kids, a great sandwich alternative for the lunch box, and I enjoy them heated and served with a garden salad for a quick and easy lunch or dinner.
500g chicken mince
1 large carrot grated
1 zucchini grated (squeeze out the liquid).
150g corn kernels
1 teaspoon of Vegeta vegetable stock
1 spring onion finely sliced
1/2 cup of Panko breadcrumbs
Pepper to season
Optional – Grated cheese is lovely in these too, as are things like mushrooms, capsicum, celery etc, just add what you and your kids love.
•Mix all ingredients in a large bowl to thoroughly combine.
•Roll into small bite size balls and pan fry in a drizzle of olive oil on low-medium heat for a few minutes until sealed and golden.
•Pop the chicken balls in a baking dish, cover with foil and bake for 15 minutes at 180c or until cooked through.
You can freeze these after cooking too, so great to have a stash for easy dinner nights. If the kids aren’t real fussed on what we are having for dinner, I simply defrost a few for them and they are happy.
