Description

Easily made ahead of time, these chicken meatballs are the perfect centerpiece to build your dinner around. This recipe outlines a frying cooking method, but these meatballs can be baked as well.

Ingredients

  • 500 grams chicken breasts
  • 3 potatoes (medium, author´s tip: use 2 regular potatoes and 1 sweet potato)
  • 1 onions (medium)
  • 4 garlic cloves
  • 1 leeks
  • 2 eggs
  • 3 tablespoons bread crumbs
  • salt (to taste)
  • vegetable oil (as needed)

Directions

  1. Cook the chicken breasts and potatoes in water seasoned with salt and a drizzle of olive oil.
  2. Remove the ingredients from the water and drain well.
  3. Using a fork, shred the chicken and mash the potatoes. Place them in a bowl and set them aside.
  4. Using a food processor (or by hand, if preferred), grind or chop the onion, garlic, leek, and parsley. Once chopped, add them to the chicken and potato mix.
  5. Add the eggs, breadcrumbs, and a pinch of salt, and stir all of the ingredients well.
  6. Form the mix into small balls, just like meatballs, and set them aside.
  7. Heat the oil in a frying pan over medium heat.
  8. Once it is hot, carefully place as many meatballs as can fit without overcrowding the frying pan. Cook until they are a nice golden brown and then place them on an absorbant cloth or paper towel.
  9. Repeat this process with the rest of the meatballs.
  10. Serve immediately (author´s suggestion: serve with white rice and a tomato salad).
