Herbed Chicken and Tofu Bites

Recipe type: Finger food, Main
 
These chicken bites are so tasty. Make as party finger food or have as part of a main meal. I make half the batch without sesame seeds and the other half with. My children love them. I make them in my thermomix, but a food processor will work well too.
Ingredients
  • 2 chicken fillets, skin removed and diced
  • 200gm firm tofu, cubed, I use a satay flavoured one, but plain tofu works well too
  • 1 onion, cut into 4
  • 1 egg
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1 slice bread
  • 1 tsp dried rosemary or small sprig if fresh
  • 2 springs fresh coriander
  • 1 spring onion, roughly chopped
  • ¼ tsp salt or seasoning of choice
  • oil for cooking
  • ⅓ - ⅔ cup sesame seeds, optional
Instructions
  1. Thermomix Method
  2. Break up slice of bread into large chunks and place in Thermomix. Mix on sp 7 for 5 seconds, until fine crumbs form. Pour into bowl and put aside.
  3. Place onion, garlic, rosemary, coriander and spring onion. Blend on sp 5 for approximately 5 seconds.
  4. Place chicken and tofu in Thermomix and blend on sp7 for 5 seconds. Add egg, salt and bread crumbs into Thermomix. Blend on sp 6 for 5 seconds or until evenly mixed.
  5. Form mixture into small bite-size balls and place in a frypan over a medium heat, with a small amount of oil. If using sesame seeds, coat the chicken balls evenly before adding to the pan. Brown on all sides.
  6. Cook in batches. Keep chicken bites warm in oven @160℃ and to ensure they are cooked through. Makes approximately 40. Serve with your favourite dipping sauce or as a main meal with rice and steamed vegetables.
  7. Conventional Method
  8. Follow Thermomix method, only determine each mixing time to suit your food processor.
  9. Cook as per above instructions.

    I think we’d have to forgo the sesame seeds, but other than that, it sounds great!
