Homemade Chicken Balls from Scratch

"This is a lovely recipe for chinese style chicken balls. Serve with warm sweet and sour sauce and you could have ordered from a chinese food restaurant. You can use this batter for shrimp or battered won ton. Place over a bed of rice. Enjoy!"

  2. Made these last night. Followed recipe almost exactly. The chicken balls came out crunchy and tasty, will make again. My only 'complaint', is that they didn't puff up as much as I expected, but that is probably because I fried them in just over an inch of oil I didn't use a deep fryer.

  3. Horrible. Batter burned...chicken still raw inside. Absolute waste of time and ruined dinner.
  4. "They were a 5000 star recipe!" Quote of the day from one of my students. We did all the math if budgeting, shopping, measuring, etc and then this cooking experience was the reward at the end. Fab taste, easy to follow.
  5. It's all about the batter and this turned out great! Not all recipes ask for egg which seems to help with the fluffiness. I used half and half veg oil and sesame oil in the batter mix.


  1. We added a tiny bit of garlic powder to the batter.
