Place on baking paper and roll into small balls about the size of a marble.

Any remaining butter can be frozen.
*No need to clean the bowl from the butter.
*Place everything into bowl and blitz for 10-15 secs/speed 7.

Shape a small amount of chicken around each ball of butter. Ensure the ball is completely covered in chicken mince.

Cooking in the oven: Bake for 30 minutes at 180 degrees.
Shallow fry: Cook over medium to hot heat in 1cm of oil, turning often, for 4 minutes each side or until cooked.
* I have cooked in a deep fryer and it works.
Note: These are also great for kids lunch boxes
