Creamy Potatoes & Chicken Meatballs

Munching some leftover Ikea meatballs and eyeing the 2 pieces of chicken breast in front of me and thought " stir frying that chicken again ? hmmm boring " :P :D Looking at the last meatball in my hand I thought , why not ? Been planning to cook spaghetti with pork meatballs later this week but when these chicken meatballs turned out well , will use these one instead ;D Next time though will add some chili flakes . This recipe's much more like chicken ala king . Omit , substitute and adjust if prefer.

8-10 baby potatoes
1 small carrot
6 pieces button mushroom , halve
some chopped onion
1 clove garlic , coarsely chopped
1/4 cup milk
1/4 cup water
1 stalk Chinese celery , sectioned
1 tsp chicken powder , some brown sugar
1/2 tsp constarch & 1 T water , mix together

Meatballs :

200 grams chicken fillet , minced/ground
2 T grated cheddar cheese
2 T panko / Japanese-style breadcrumbs
1 T cilantro , chopped
1 1/2 T cornflour

* Mix ingredients above and let it rest for a while . Form into balls and pan-fry until golden brown . Set aside .

-----------

* Boil baby potatoes for 20 minutes and add the carrot in the last 5 minutes . Drain and let cool , then peel the skin , cut potatoes in half and chop the carrot  .
* Pour some oil in the pan , fry the mushrooms until golden brown , transfer to a plate . Keep warm .
* In the same pan , stir fry the onion until slightly soft then add in the garlic , fry until fragrant . Add the potatoes , carrot , mushrooms and the meatballs , stir to combine and pour in the water . Add in the chicken powder and sugar , mix thoroughly . Cover and simmer until half of the liquid evaporates , then pour in the milk and adjust taste . Let it simmer for few minutes and add in the celery , stir well to combine , add in the cornstarch mixture , give it a good stir until mixtures thickens . Dish up .

  3. This does look like a wonderful meal. The cheddar cheese and the panko in the meatballs are some awesome ingredients. I would have some trouble not eating them all before I add them to the veggie mix. Well done and have a wonderful weekend!
