Gluten free, Nut free

Ingredients:

  • 1 small onion
  • 600g chicken mince
  • ½ cup cornflake crumbs (gluten-free)
  • ½ cup freshly grated parmesan cheese
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • Sweet chilli sauce, to serve

Method:

Preheat oven to 180°C. Line a baking tray with baking paper.

Finely chop the onion – I used the bowl attachment of my stab-mixer.

Combine onion, chicken, cornflake crumbs, cheese and egg in a large bowl.

Mix until well combined and roll tablespoons of mixture into small balls.

Place balls on tray and bake for 30 minutes until golden and sizzling.

Notes:

  • These balls are great because they are oven-baked, not fried, can be made in advance and then cooked just before serving.
  • Serve with a salad for a main meal or on their own as an appetiser or entrée.
  • If your kids cope with Green Bits, add ¼ cup of chopped coriander or parsley leaves to the mixture.
