Meatballs are a cocktail-party staple and I love them all. These chicken ones, from Catskill Provisions, have been an excellent addition to my meatball repertoire. The finishing glaze adds a wonderful sweetness that makes them an irresistible party food.

Serves 6

Ingredients

  • 2 tsp. light olive oil
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 1 Granny Smith apple, peeled, cored and roughly chopped
  • 2 chicken breasts, roughly chopped
  • 1 Tbsp. fresh parsley
  • 1 Tbsp. fresh thyme
  • 1 chicken bouillon cube
  • 1 cup dried, white bread crumbs
  • 1 tsp. ground ginger
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. freshly ground black pepper
  • 2/3 cup all-purpose flourFor the glaze:
  • 2 Tbsp. honey
  • 2 Tbsp. pure maple syrup
  • 2 Tbsp. balsamic vinegarDirections

    Heat the olive oil in a pan and sauté half of the onion until really soft but not browned, about 5 minutes.

    Put the apple, chicken, sautéed onion and remaining raw onion, herbs, bouillon cube, bread crumbs and ground ginger in a food processor and blitz until minced. Season with the salt and pepper.

    Scoop out and make into about 20 little balls (about the size of a Ping-Pong ball), roll in the flour and fry in shallow vegetable oil in a skillet over low heat until lightly golden and cooked through, 2 to 4 minutes per side. Cook in batches so as not to overcrowd the pan; turn regularly so as not to burn the outside.

    Make The Glaze: In a small saucepan, bring the glaze ingredients to a boil and cook over medium heat until the sauce thickens, 5 to 10 minutes, depending on the thickness of your balsamic vinegar. Add the glaze to the meatballs and shake the pan well until the meatballs are all fully coated.
