Sometimes it is hard to find something you just know that the kids will eat and that will be good for them. I found that these little chicken balls are good for snacks and dinner and that they are packed full of healthy goodness. And I really love them too. This is how I make them.
Grate up whatever vegetables you have on hand. I often do a large carrot, a zucchini, a few mushrooms and half a brown onion. Sprinkle in some chicken stock and a big handful of LSA (ground linseed, sunflower and almond mix). Mix together with 500g of chicken mince and then get messy. Roll small balls of the mixture and place on a lined baking tray. Depending on the size of your balls to how many you make, I usually get about 50-60 balls. Bake in your oven for about 20 minutes on 180C until cooked through.

The chicken balls aren’t greasy because you don’t need oil to cook them. They stick together really well and don’t crumble apart on you. The veggies make them nice and moist. The LSA mix gives a nutty flavour. And they are packed full of healthy goodness all in easy finger food bites. I just serve these up to my kids on their own and they love them. If there are any leftovers you can have them for lunch with a few bits and bobs like cheese cubes, grape tomatoes, gherkins, beetroot and baby corn. For adults, add some chilli sauce to dunk them in and these are to die for. Quick, easy and healthy – a meal that will keep everyone happy. What more could you ask for.Love it. Follow me. . .
