Chicken Cordon Bleu Balls: Délicieux!!!

Every dish that I cook, always had its own background story behind it.

Just like this one: Chicken Cordon Bleu Balls. Through its name, you know that I'm inspired by Chicken Cordon Bleu. Since I don't have much time to cook, I simplify this dish and make it as a finger food.

It was when my dad asked me to cook for him. He said, "Why do you always cook for your husband, and never for your dad???"  So, here I present you the recipe of Chicken Cordon Bleu Balls, specially created for my beloved dad ;)

  • 250 grams of minced chicken
  • Mozzarella cheese or you can easily use QuickMelt, cut into dices
  • 3 cloves of garlic, grind
  • Salt and Pepper
  • Oregano 
  • Bread crumbs
  • 2 egg, whisk
  • Cooking oil
  • Chili sauce or tomato ketchup

How to Make:
  • Put the minced chicken into a big bowl. Add the garlic. Mix them.
  • Add some salt, pepper and oregano.
  • Put some bread crumbs into a flat plate. Prepare the eggs, too.
  • Take a spoon of minced chicken, flatten it, put a dice of cheese in the middle and round it. Make sure that the cheese is in the middle, so it won't melt out during frying.
  • Dip the ball into the eggs, and then roll it onto the bread crumbs. Make sure that the ball's surface is already covered with the bread crumbs.
  • Keep the ball for approx. 1 hour to make the bread crumbs stick well.
  • Prepare the cooking oil to fry. Deep fry the ball with low heat.
  • Serve the ball with chili sauce or tomato ketchup.

  1. If you fry the ball with over high heat, the cheese inside the ball will easily burst.
  2. This dish is much more delicious when you enjoy it right after it's fried, since the minced chicken is still moist and the cheese is still melting.

Bon Appétit!!
