My picky eater nephew is visiting and as he like chicken fingers I felt this would be a great option and it was; he declared it 2 thumbs up!! I followed the direction with only one exception. I knew when I saw how light the balls were in the oven he wouldn't even try them so finished them off by frying and browning a little. I know that takes away from the healthy end of it - but he devoured them and so did everyone else. Served with a hosin dipping sauce for adults and ranch for him.
Mixed reaction on this the DH was o'kay 3 stars but the rest of thoroughly enjoyed with mashed potatoe, steamed veg and sweet and sour sauce over the chicken balls. I doubled the recipe (I had just over a kilo of chicken mince in the freezer that had to be used up) but only used 2 spring onions (the DH wouldn't tolerate more) and part of the problem could have been the carrot as when we first came to WA he was able to tolerate it but previously in the eastern states couldn't but we think the varieties have changed here and he no longer can so he ended up with a slight case of indigestion but he did like them and suggested that as tiny meatballs would be a great appertizer with different dipping sauces eg sweet and sour, sate, b-b-q and tomatoe were his suggestions. Thank you Mandy made for Edition 7 - Make My Recipe.
These are lovely little gems. I used ground chicken breast that I ground myself so it was extremely lean. I do not recommend that as they need the fat in order to be moist. Not everyone would want the very lean version I made especially kids. I LOVE the fact that you can hide veggies in these! Perfect! These were so easy to prepare. I zipped everything up in the food processor to get the carrots and parsley tiny. Then added the meat and pulsed to mix. Kids would inhale these I bet! Thanks for the great recipe Mandy!

Melbourne I live on a 5 acre property in the Dandenong Ranges Victoria, Australia, having moved from the burbs when I became pregnant with my now 15 year old daughter Alyssa. Once my daughter was born I became a stay at home mum as I couldn't bear the thought of putting her in daycare. She is the light of my life, I never imagined myself as a mum when younger but now wouldn't have it any other way. Alyssa was made a big sister on the 19th April 2010 when our cheeky little boy Blake was born. I love cooking and experimenting with new recipes so quickly become addicted to Zaar as it was previously known & still use it regularly. In addition to being my kids taxi :lol: I also spend my time, reading, gardening and of course shopping. I'm lucky enough that we have the space & so love growing our own fruits, vegies & herbs, this also means we have plenty of room for animals & at the moment have 2 dogs, Max, a Jackshund who's 6, Fletcher, a Kelpie who's 4, 6 cats Snowpea, Fergus, Ginger, Tango, Annie & Cookie, 4 chooks & 2 Ducks. As well as our pets, we also have a lot of native animals around our area, we have kangaroos, wombats, echidna's, possums as well as rosella's, galah's & Cockatoo's hence the name of where I live..
