This recipe is one of the most fun from my boneless chicken breast recipes. Especially if you get your own kids involved to help you make them - right Chef?!
2 skinless, boneless chicken breasts
3 tablespoons of vegetable oil
1 medium onion
1 chopped celery
1 garlic clove
2 tablespoons light soy sauce
1 bunch of green onions
Parsley finely chopped
Salt and pepper to taste
Wash the chicken thoroughly and dry with paper towels. Cut the chicken into small pieces. Trim off any excess fat. (Remember this is for our kids!)
Heat half of the oil in a skillet over high heat and sautée the chicken.
When thoroughly done, lift pieces out with a slotted spoon and set chicken aside.
Wash and peel the onion, then chop it. Now add the onion, celery, and crushed garlic to the skillet and sautée for 1-2 minutes until everything is soft.
Place the chicken, onion, celery and garlic in a blender and process until finely ground. Add 1 tablespoon of light soy sauce and egg to make a firm mixture. Season with salt and pepper, and add the parsley.
Trim the green onions and cut into small 5-6 cm lengths.
...Now comes the fun part! This is where you can get your kids to help! :)
Shape the chicken mixture into 15-17 balls - about 2 to 3 cm in diameter. You can get more if you create small ones.
the rest of the oil in skillet and sautée the balls in small
batches for 4-5 minutes until they're a lovely golden brown colour.

Nice and simple. Just like our kids like!
