Mary-nated Chicken Balls

In honour of my mother's Mary Coutinho's 70th birthday, I wanted to create an appetizer that would contain all the flavours she loves in one small bite. Introducing the Mary-nated Chicken Balls. Middle Eastern spices elevate this chicken ball to an exotic status and this is the perfect make ahead and reheat appetizer to serve at a party for fuss free entertaining.


1lb ground chicken (can sub turkey)
1 tsp red chilli flakes
1 tsp oregano
1 tsp cumin powder
1 tsp pomegranate molasses
1/4 cup feta cheese
1/2 red onion finely chopped
salt & pepper
1/4 cup chopped parsley
1/4 cup chopped pickled turnips
Oil for frying


Combine all the above ingredients together

Shape and form small balls

Heat the oil and fry the balls for 5 - 7 mins(may need less time)

Drain on a paper towel

Skewer with a fancy pick and serve.
