Hoisin Chicken Balls
This is one of my sister's favourites, made this as one of the dishes for my sisters birthday the other night, she absolutely loves these. This is a great party food, or a Sunday snack food when your chilling out watching your team play. It is also a good recipe, as this can be made ahead of time and just reheated in the microwave before serving.
- Ready In:
- 1 kg ground chicken
- 2 cups breadcrumbs (I use Japanese panko flakes, since finding these a couple of years ago I have never gone back, I thi)
- 2 garlic cloves, crushed
- 1 small brown onion, finely chopped
- 80 ml hoisin sauce
- 1 tablespoon soy sauce
- 2 teaspoons gingerroot, finely grated
- 1⁄2 teaspoon sesame oil
- 1⁄2 teaspoon five-spice powder
- 1 egg
- 3 tablespoons peanut oil

- Preheat oven to 180°C.
- Combine chicken, breadcrumbs, onion, garlic, hoisin and soy sauces, ginger, sesame oil, five spice and egg in a bowl. Shape into balls, by rolling mixture between your hands.
- Heat the oil in a large frying pan, cook chicken balls in batches, until browned all over (shake pan from time to time, to keep the round shape.).
- Transfer chicken balls to an oven proof dish, bake in the oven for 15-20 minutes or until cooked through, serve with dipping sauce.
- Dipping sauce.
- Combine all the ingredients in a bowl, mix well and pour into a serving bowl.
MY PRIVATE NOTES

Just made these and was very pleased with the recipe! I had only over one pound of ground chicken, but kept everything except the bread crumbs (used one cup) the same as posted for 1 kilo. What I really loved about them was the hint of five spice flavor ( I used the 1/2 teaspoon) without overpowering the overall taste. I had only canola oil and used that rather than the peanut oil to fry them, then popped them in the oven for about 12 minutes. The only regret for me was that it did take a bit of time. I cut everything by hand, but maybe should take the advice of other reviewers and do this in the cuisinart. I also liked the dipping sauce. Thanks so much for posting, Flying Chef, yum!Reply
easy peasey recipe, I made up half. Had chicken tenderloins, and a stale bun. Put everything in the whizz, too easy. I would happily make these for a party, great finger food! I will make them again using real chicken mince (which I couldnt get this time) and I will whizz everything else, then add the chicken, I feel this will add texture to the balls!1Reply
