recipe

  • Step 1
    Finely chop the chicken into very small pieces with a knife or coarsely mix in a blender.
  • Step 2
    Finely chop the onion.
  • Step 3
    In a bowl, mix the chicken, egg, onions, breadcrumbs, salt and pepper. Add a bit of flour if the mixture is too wet.
  • Step 4
    Make 1 - 1.5 inch balls with your fingers. Tip: lightly oil your hands to prevent sticking.
  • Step 5
    Place the meatballs on wooden skewers (if you have them).
  • Step 6
    Cook the rice according to the instructions on the package.
  • Step 7
    In a frying pan on medium heat, add a drizzle of olive oil and the skewers. Cook for 2 to 3 minutes on each side, depending on the thickness of the meatballs.
  • Step 8
    Once the meatballs are golden brown, lower the heat and cover the pan. Cook on low heat for 4 minutes.
  • Step 9
    Add the sugar and soy sauce, and stir. When the sauce has thickened, coat the meatballs with it.
  • Step 10
    Serve the skewers over the rice and drizzle the leftover sauce from the pan on top. Serve and enjoy!
