Cheesy Spicy Chicken Boulettes

  • Difficulty: Medium
  • 40 minutes
  • 3 servings

Make these French cuisine-inspired meatballs (“boulettes de viande” in French) with a spicy chicken mixture. Flavor it with herbs and make it special with ginger, chili, and garlic. Wrap the meatballs in breadcrumbs for a slightly crispy texture that contrasts in the most appetizing way with the gooey mozzarella core.

How to Make Cheesy Spicy Chicken Boulettes

  1. Add the chicken breast, ginger-garlic paste, chili sauce, red chili powder, mixed herbs, and parsley to a mixer bowl. Season with salt and mix until smooth.
  2. Transfer to a bowl and start forming meatballs by wrapping the mozzarella cubes with the mixture. Set aside.
  3. Add the eggs and milk to a bowl and whisk until even. Set this egg wash aside. Add the flour to another bowl and the breadcrumbs to yet another one.
  4. Coat each meatball with flour, egg wash, and breadcrumbs.
  5. Fill a deeper frying pan with vegetable oil and heat it over medium heat. Add the meatballs and deep-fry them until golden brown.
