One meatball per serving. The meatballs can be prepared then frozen for cooking at a later date. Also, the calories are not necessarily as high as they appear when you consider that not all the milk or olive oil is present in the finished meal...ENJOY!

Recipe Ingredients for Chicken Rissoles

4 cups (140g/4 slices) bread, sourdough
1 cup (no fat) milk
120 g brown onion, finely diced
2 garlic cloves, finely diced
1 1/2 tbsp fresh rosemary, chopped
1 tbsp olive oil
600 g skinless chicken thigh, diced
1 large egg
130 g parmesan cheese, grated
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp black pepper
90 g pine nuts, toasted
2 cups (continental) parsley, chopped
2 tbsp olive oil

Recipe Directions for Chicken Rissoles

  1. Pour milk over bread in a medium bowl and leave to soak for a short time.

  2. Dice onion and garlic then strip one large sprig of rosemary and chop.

  3. Cook onion, garlic and rosemary in olive oil in a large frypan until golden then set aside to cool.

  4. While onion mix is cooking, squeeze milk out of the sourdough and place in food processor along with the chicken and blitz together for approximately 3 minutes.

  5. Add egg, parmesan, salt, pepper and cooled onion mix to the processor and blitz for 30 seconds.

  6. Transfer mixture from the processor to a large bowl then add pine nuts and parsley and mix through by hand.

  7. Divide mixture into 16 portions and using your hands, roll each portion into balls...TIP - lightly coat your hands in oil to avoid the mixture sticking to your hands.

  8. AT THIS POINT, either freeze the meatballs for cooking at a later date or continue with the cooking process. To freeze, you can line a tray with baking paper then cover and freeze or place each meatball in a small freezer bag. Avoid crushing them while freezing initially.

  9. Brown in olive oil (flattening the balls out into a rissole shape to allow for better cooking to the centre) on high heat in a large frypan until golden brown then reduce the heat and cook through.
