This morning I have made Amelia Chicken & Apple Balls,which I’ll serve with some carrot sticks and cucumber. This is the first time we have tried these.Recipe taken from Annabel Karmel. I’m waiting on arrival of her Toddler Cook Book,so will have some new recipes to try soon.


2 tsp light olive oil
1 onion, finely chopped
1 large Granny Smith apple, peeled and grated
2 large chicken breasts, cut into chunks
½ tbsp fresh parsley
1 tbsp fresh thyme or sage, chopped, or a pinch of dried mixed herbs
1 chicken stock cube, crumbled (from 1 year)
50g fresh white breadcrumbs
Salt and freshly ground pepper (from 1 year)
Plain flour for coating
Vegetable oil for frying



Heat the olive oil in a pan and sauté half the onion for about 3 minutes.
Using your hands, squeeze out a little excess liquid from the grated apple.
Mix the apple with the chicken, then add the cooked and remaining raw onion, herbs stock cube (from 1 year) and breadcrumbs and roughly chop in a food processor for a few seconds. Season with a little salt and pepper (from 1 year).
With your hands, form into about 20 little balls, roll in flour and fry in shallow oil for about 5 minutes until lightly golden and cooked through.



Hope ye enjoy,let me know if you make it and if your little ones enjoy them. I’m having a cup of coffee now,and finishing off the remaining party food xx
