Perfect Thai Chicken Meatballs The Kids Will Love

Show me a kid who doesn’t like meatballs, and I’ll give up chocolate or pineapple juice, or even both! Well, maybe I won’t go that far, but I’ll definitely be surprised.

Meatballs are perfect for kids – small, bite-sized and tasty. They are also perfect for entertaining. These are full of flavour, but still ok for kids. If you prefer a little more heat, feel free to add a finely chopped chilli to the mixture. They also have the added bonus of being baked rather than fried.
