This was one of my daughter’s favourites as a toddler. I’d almost forgotten about them entirely but had some apples that needed using up, and inspiration struck. These are really delicious – the apple keeps the chicken moist and also adds a slight sweetness that pleases fussy toddlers (and adults alike!).
I made a batch of meatballs for the kids, and made burgers for the grown ups. Yuuuuuuum!!!
Recipe for Chicken and Apple Meatballs/Burgers

Prep time: 10 minutes
Cooking time: 20- 25minutes
What you need
6 chicken breasts, minced
2 small apples, grated
1 tspn ginger & garlic paste
1/2 tspn mustard powder
1 tspn dried origanum (or mixed herbs)
1 egg, lightly whisked
Salt and pepper to taste
What you need to do
*I use a food processor which makes things a lot easier, but you can do it without one!*

They’re great as snacks, for lunch boxes, or as part of a meal.
