  • 500 grams chicken thigh
  • 4 spring onions
  • 2 red chillis
  • 1.5 tablespoons garlic paste
  • 1.5 teaspoons ginger paste
  • 1/2 cup coriander leaves loosely packed
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 2 tablespoons almond meal
  • 1.5 teaspoon salt


  • 1 small carrot cut into matchsticks
  • 1 lebanese cucumber thinly sliced
  • 1/2 red capsicum thinly sliced
  • 3 spring onions sliced diagonally
  • 1/4 cup fresh coriander
  • 1/4 wombok cabbage shredded

Vietnamese Salad Dressing

  • 1/4 cup fish sauce
  • 1/4 cup rice wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoons xylitol
  • 1 small red chilli thinly sliced
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 1 teaspoon garlic paste


  1. Preheat the oven to 180C / 356F and line a baking tray with baking paper. 

  2. Roughly chop all meatball ingredients. In a food processor or powerful blender, blend all meatball ingredients together until the chicken is broken down. It's ok to have slightly larger pieces of chicken. 

  3. Roll tablespoon balls of the meatball mixture and place on the baking tray about 2cm apart, 

  4. Bake for 20 - 25 minutes or until cooked through. Alternatively, you can fry in a large frying pan in coconut oil until cooked through.

  5. While cooking, prepare your salad by cutting all vegetables as specified above. Whisk together salad dressing ingredients.

  6. Serve chicken meatballs immediately, tossed through salad and dressing.
