Thai chicken dipping balls. Every time I say the title, it sounds filthier than the last. Don’t care. Listen, we weren’t going to post tonight as dearest Paul decided to crash his car (he’s fine, my wallet isn’t) but Musclefood called us to give us another discount – but only for 24 hours. So for crying out loud, if you want some cheap meat, get it now. Hopefully you dear readers will forgive us an advert right off the bat but it’s rare we do it and it’s only because it’s a flash sale that we’re sticking it in. If you don’t want to even look, click here and it’ll go straight to the recipe! See? Considerate!
Right, details are as below – Musclefood are giving us a 15/20% discount on our three main packages – you can see below the various offers and the links are here – they’ll open in a new window:
We’ve got syn values and more details on our Musclefood page but remember, this is a flash sale that’ll end tomorrow night – so get it whilst its hot!
Right, shall we get straight to my balls? We’ve made these because they’re an easy alternative to the usual stuff trotted out at taster nights, but actually, they make for a bloody good snack too as they keep in the fridge! We’re the gift that keeps on giving, no?
to make Thai chicken dipping balls you will need:
- 4 chicken breasts (get more than a handful with our Musclefood deal!)
- 1 egg
- 25g panko (4.5 syns)
- 1 tbsp fish sauce
- 1 tsp hot chilli powder
- ½ tsp minced ginger (save your fingertips and use this)
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- 3 spring onions, finely sliced
to make Thai chicken dipping balls you should:
- preheat the oven to 200°c
- put the chicken breasts into a food processor and blitz until they have a mince-like consistency (you can actually just use 500g chicken mince if you prefer, but doing it this way with breasts makes for a nicer taste and texture)
- next, combine all of the ingredients together in a big bowl
- spray a large baking sheet with a little oil (don’t strip away the coating by using Frylight, use this instead and get the job done properly)
- scoop out a tablespoon-sized ball of mixture and roll into a ball and place on the baking sheet, and then repeat
- bake in the oven for about 15-20 minutes
- serve with whatever dipping sauce you like, we used sweet chilli!
