Minced chicken balls – finger food

A simple snack to prepare. Can be eaten for lunch or dinner or just an afternoon snack. An easy way to get kids to eat chicken if they don’t like too much chewing.


2 tablespoons of jar pesto (or make your own if you have time)

3 large carrots, trimmed and chopped super fine using a stickmaster or similar

1 brown onion, chopped super fine as above

2 chicken breasts, minced as above or buy approx 500g minced chicken

1 lemon

1 egg, slight whisk

1 cup breadcrumbs

Salt & Pepper

Olive oil


Preheat oven to 180 degrees. Combine in a bowl minced chicken, carrot, onion, pesto and mix through. Add breadcrumbs, egg and seasoning. Separate mixture into approx 2cm balls. Heat oil in frypan and cook balls until brown, turning to make sure all side are browning. Should take approx 4-6 minutes depending on heat of pan. Then transfer balls to an oven dish and bake in oven for 20 minutes. This will cook the balls through while still keeping the crust crispy.

Serve with sliced lemon and mayonnaise. Serve with your favourite salad or vegetable side or can just be eaten on its own. Very tasty.
