Chicken Meatballs in a Spicy Peanut sauce with Egg Noodles
You can choose to use Pork mince, chicken mince or turkey mince. I wouldn’t like it with beef mince, you might.
It is important that you use the oven if you make big meatballs like I did, this will mean any excess fat in the meat will drip out into the baking tin and not in your sauce, this is especially important if using pork or beef mince or if the chicken or turkey mince isn’t lean.
I used Lidl’s chicken mince for this, I had to add breadcrumbs and eggs to bind it all together, use gluten free bread to make your own if this this is important to you, though you will also need to change the soy sauce for gluten free tamari.
Stick the rest of the veggies (not the beans) including the ginger and garlic pastes into a food processor along with the Thai 7 spice, soy and fish sauce. Blend them really well so you are left with as smooth a paste as possible. Set to one side for the moment.
Is Thai 7 spice easy to come by? Recipe looks delicious!
You’ll find it in most supermarkets apart from Lidl and Aldi. It’s in a pink jar.
Just made this, absolutely delicious 😋
I have just made these.they are absolutely amazing.
Made this for the first time yesterday and wow, it’s delicious and a big hit with the whole family. Thank you, Liam.
Absolutely gorgeous meal. I didn’t add green beans as mange tout was all I had! I most likely added more breadcrumbs than stated and I got 12 meatballs. I cooked them in a muffin tin for 15 mins and they came out just perfect. Thanks for this lovely recipe
Liam, just made this and was delicious. Meatballs were a bit wet but was prob my measurements as a kind of doubled it up. I put them straight in oven rather than browning them and they turned out perfect. Just wanted a tip on the rice noodles, how to prevent them sticking?
Just made this, OMG, it was amazing. It’s a keeper
