Hoisin Chicken Balls

Hoisin Chicken Balls created by Chef floWer

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.

    These are so good! I halved the recipe (but used one egg so I had to add a bit more bread crumbs - I used Panko). These were delicious!!!! I served them with fried rice. This recipe is a keeper!

    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!

    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!

    Extremely good, I made as directed and thoroughly enjoyed the mix of flavours, it made a moist delicious meatball which we enjoyed along with fried rice. I cooked as directed, and they turned out perfectly. thanks for a delicious addition to my 'repertoire'!
