I created this recipe to try to duplicate some finger food I had at a restaurant. They are great as an entrée or as a fun food for kids.


Serves: 12 

  • 280g chicken mince
  • 1/4 cup cooked, diced ham
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup (60g) breadcrumbs
  • 230g Swiss cheese, cut into 1cm cubes
  • 3 cups (750ml) canola oil for frying

Preparation:25min  ›  Cook:25min  ›  Ready in:50min 

  1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees C.
  2. Combine the chicken, ham and egg in a large bowl until well blended. Gradually add breadcrumbs until the mixture loses its stickiness and can be easily formed into balls.
  3. Form the chicken mixture around the cheese cubes, forming 5cm balls. Place on a plate.
  4. Heat 4cm of oil in a deep frypan to 180 degrees C. Fry the balls until the outsides are golden brown, about 4 minutes. Drain on paper towels and place in baking dish.
  5. Bake in preheated oven until cooked through and cheese is soft, about 20 minutes. Cool briefly before serving.
