  1. In a large bowl, mix together the chicken and bread crumbs. Season with green onion, ground coriander, cilantro, chili 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 skillet over medium heat. Fry the chicken balls in batches until well browned all over.

I used 1.25 pounds of ground turkey, and subbed dried onions and dried cilantro. Instead of frying these, I baked them in the oven for about 25 minutes at 400 degrees. We ate it with brown rice ...

This recipe was very good and offered a good spice blend with very exotic flavouring. I did find that 1 cup of cilantro was too much and used only half. I also added some salt and 2 fresh garl...

These have become a regular meal in our house. I usually make them just as the recipe states, and I often get compliments on them and requests for this recipe. For a healthier take, we bake at 4...
