Cheesy Chicken Balls



ground chicken
1 egg
1/4 cup flour
 onion, minced
garlic, minced
cheddar cheese, cubed (or mozzarella)
salt & pepper


1. Season the ground chicken with salt and pepper
2. Combine it with beaten egg, minced onion and garlic
3. Get a cube of cheese and form a ball of seasoned ground chicken and roll it on the flour
4. Heat oil in pan and fry the balls until golden brown
5. Serve with sweet chili sauce or tomato catsup

You can make the balls a little bigger and make the cheese slices a little bigger if you want it to ooze when you bite. This is perfect for snack but you can also eat this with rice and soup. I usually partner fried food with soup, so that the meal wouldn't be so dry. This is best served when the cheese is still hot but make sure to dry it first on a paper towel to get rid of the excess oil.

If you want to get your hands dirty, you'd enjoy this. I am not a particular fan of molding things with my hands. but it's okay. I don't enjoy it because I don't like my hands dirty, so I tend to soil an entire kitchen towel with grease, trying to clean my hands every time I finish forming one ball. Kids will enjoy this, so if you have little ones, you can ask them to help. Be sure that they are not putting too many cheese cubes inside, though, because I noticed that my younger sisters have the tendency to do that --- for a surprise factor, they say.
