FABULOUS!! I got this recipe from the wife of a co-worker, and I serve it at every dinner party, shower, holiday party--any type of gathering for family and friends. As soon as I invite someone, they invaribly ask if I'm going to have this chicken ball. It is wonderful.

Although I found this recipe very good, it seemed just a little bland. Don't know what one might add... maybe a little more curry, or some salt? It made a huge portion!

Wow, this was great! I took it over to a freinds house last weekend, and everyone just loved it. Prepared it in the middle of the morning...and took it over in the evening, the only thing extra, was I added some fresh garlic... DH and my self are big garlic lovers, we all had it with crackers....big hit! Excellent recipe Georgia Girl, I will be making this again. Thanks for posting :-)
