CORE Chicken Balls / Patties

I made these with Thai style herbs and served with hot chilli sauce (since sweet chilli isn't Core). The flavouring was subtle.

If you have kids, you might prefer using just parsley and perhaps serving with BBQ sauce.

Serves: 4-6

Difficulty: Easy

  • 600g chicken mince
  • 2 tsp dry French Onion soup mix
  • 2 egg
  • 30 g (1/3 cup) rolled oats
  • 1 tsp crushed chilli paste (or hot chilli sauce)
  • 3 tsp finely chopped basil
  • 2 tsp finely chopped coriander

With a fork, mix together all except the oats.
When thouroughly mixed, add oats.
With wet fingertips and a bowl of water handy (stops sticking) make into 2cm balls and place on baking tray. I made 36 this size, but you could vary the size.
Bake at 180*C for 30 minutes

NB - chicken mince takes a lot to brown. If you like the look of browned meat, slide under the griller for a few minutes (I did)

Not on Core? The total for this recipe is 21 points
