The super tandem of meat and cheese is back. Recollective of the traditional cheeseburger, this dish combines ground chicken meat and cheese that’s been tucked in the ball of meat. So, when you cut it in half, the cheese greets you with the “Hello, eat me!” surprise!
I get emails from readers requesting for recipes they can execute with their kids. This dish has to be the answered prayer. It’s easy, fanciful and tasty.
Cheesy Chicken Balls
To do this you will need:
1/2 kilo ground chicken
1 small egg, beaten
1/4 cup flour
1 onion, minced
3 cloves of garlic, minced
salt and pepper to taste
1 sprig of rosemary leaves, chopped (optional)
cheddar cheese cubes
1 tsp cayenne pepper (optional)
oil for frying
1. Season chicken with salt and pepper.
2. Mix chicken, egg, flour, onion,garlic, rosemary and cayenne pepper.
3. Scoop some meat mixture forming a patty on your palm. Put cheese cube on top. Now, lift the patty sides up to enclose the cheese inside. Mold into a ball.
4. Fry in medium heat until golden brown. Set aside and let stand for 5 minutes.
