Thai Style Chicken Bites

Course Main Course


  • 500 grams Chicken Mince
  • 2 tsp Tamari
  • 2 tsp Fish Sauce
  • 2 tsp Mild Red Curry Paste
  • 2 Tbsp Fresh coriander, finely chopped
  • 1/4 Cup Shallots (spring onions), finely sliced
  • 1-2 Tbsp Coconut Oil


  • In a mixing bowl, combine the chicken mince, tamari, fish sauce, mild red curry paste, coriander and shallots. Using your hands mix until well combined. 
  • Shape the mixture into 1-inch meatballs. 
  • Heat a little coconut oil in a large non-stick fry pan. Add the meatballs to the pan (do not overcrowd the pan) and cook, turning them as you go so all sides are evenly browned and meatballs are cooked through. You may need cook the meatballs in two batches depending on how big your pan is. 
  • Serve immediately with your choice of a side salad, rice or lightly steamed vegetables


Note: This is a great idea for little ones who prefer finger food, serve with a selection of vegetable sticks, rice or lightly blanched vegetables such as broccoli and cauliflower florets. Offer a wide variety and allow your children to pick their favourites.
