This lighter type of meatball makes a quick and satisfying supper. Serve with rice, burger buns, or straight out the pan...

800g minced chicken
100g fresh white breadcrumbs
4 spring onions, finely sliced
½ bunch fresh coriander, chopped
4 tablespoons sweet chilli sauce
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
salt and pepper
Rapeseed oil for frying
1. In a large bowl, mix together the chicken and breadcrumbs. Season with spring onion, fresh coriander, chilli sauce and lemon juice; mix well.
2. Using damp hands, form mixture into evenly shaped balls that are either small enough to eat with your fingers, or large enough to use as burgers.
3. Heat oil in a large frying pan over medium heat. Pan fry the chicken meatballs in batches until golden brown all over and the juices run clear.
4. Serve the meatballs with a chilli sauce and rice or as burgers in buns with salad.
