chicken snackers

These little chicken morsels served with a chili yoghurt sauce are amazing, can be prepared ahead of time, added to salads to give the salad some substance, or even added to a pasta sauce to make spaghetti chicken meatballs (done it many times and it’s fantastic). You can pop a few in the kids lunch boxes and they will have a whole lot of new friends I tell you. (makes enough for 4 people)

What you need

500g chicken mince
Pinch of salt and pepper
1 teaspoon crushed garlic
1 teaspoon finely chopped red chili (optional)
2 tablespoons breadcrumbs
4 tablespoons water

200g natural unflavoured yoghurt
1 tablespoon sweet chili sauce

The process

Mix all of the patty ingredients together ensuring that the ingredients are well combined.

This part is important.. Make small patties about 2 to 3 cm diameter and place on a plate and refrigerate for about 1/2 hour to an hour. This will ensure that they hold their shape and do not break during cooking.

Heat the grill pan to hot and cook the patties for about 2 minutes on each side. Serve and drizzle over the yoghurt and sweet chili sauce as a dressing.

These are really versatile little fellas that are great to have in th fridge all the time.
