I think your exactly right, PF. When you think about it, pulled pork or shredded cooked beef doesn't really stick together either. I'm sure ground chicken would work much better for forming the balls, I'm not sure about the cooking part though. They brown so quickly I'm not sure the chicken would be thoroughly cooked. Not unless you pre-cooked the balls and then breaded and fried them. Something to play with...

Hi pacanis! I tried your chicken balls recipe and put my own twist in it! I shredded the chicken and added smooth peanut butter with breadcrumbs and egg. I made the balls and crumbed them and then deep fried them. They came out perfectly. Thank you for the idea!

When the basket was almost empty they asked again which part of the turkey the nuts came from. The bar tender grabbed the part and said the NNNUUUUTTTTSSS. One of the ladies ran to the bathroom.........

Fantastic idea PF!!
Let me know if they cook through without the breading burning. That was my only thought to this. Otherwise they would sure hold together better. I don't fry raw meats, so have no clue.

Upload all your pics to the site like normal and close out that window.
There is a paperclip (attachment symbol) up in the advanced textfield toolbar, just right of the smiley face. Click on it and it will let you choose the pictures individually to insert. Then you can put them anywhere you want and change the order if you wish.

chicken, recipe

Fried Chicken Balls I saw a forum member make these before (L2Q), I tried them and liked them, and last night I had another go at them, changing up the ingredients somewhat. Another name for them could be Bleu Buffalo Balls :angel:, as they have bleu cheese in them and Frank's Buffalo wing sauce. And celery. Basically I combined all the things that make Buffalo wings Buffalo wings; chicken, Buffalo wing sauce, celery and blue cheese. If you've never tried Frank's Buffalo Wing Sauce give it a go. It comes ready to use with that buttery taste built in :yum: There wasn't any real recipe I followed. You might say I pretty much winged it :rolleyes: (sorry) Season and cook some chicken. Or pull apart some already cooked chicken. We aren't exactly talking a gourmet meal here. [ATTACH]16324[/ATTACH] I shredded the breast I used using two forks, then rocked a knife through it several times to mince it even finer. [ATTACH]16325[/ATTACH] Add your ingredients to a bowl; the chicken, diced celery, crumbled blue cheese and enough sauce to coat well. Mix well with a fork or spoon. If you added too much sauce don't worry, you can squeeze it out when you form the balls. [ATTACH]16326[/ATTACH] The tricky part is forming the balls. I might add some bread crumbs next time to help bind things better, but it's doable. You just need to be gentle. These are golf ball sized, but smaller would be better. Even fried they don't hold together well when biting into one. Next time I'll make them bite sized. [ATTACH]16327[/ATTACH] Coat the balls in flour, egg, then panko crumbs. Just roll them around in the breading ingredients and do the best you can. [ATTACH]16328[/ATTACH] Fry until golden brown. In this case I made with fries, so it worked out well. I put the cut fries into the cold oil and by the time the oil was hot enough for the balls (350-360F or so), the fries were done :smile: [ATTACH]16329[/ATTACH] 3 stars 1 reviews
