Chicken Balls

4 Chicken thighs skinned, boned, cut into 1" cubes

Batter
1/3 cup flour (recipe calls for cake flour-I use all purpose)
1/3 cup cornstarch or potato starch
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup plus 2 teaspoons water
1 teaspoon vegetable oil

6 cups oil for deep frying

Heat oil to 360F (180C) or until a 1" bread cube turns golden brown in 60 seconds.
Mix batter ingredients together. Dip chicken pieces into the batter to coat. Fry several pieces at a time 2 to 3 minutes or until crispy and golden-brown. Drain on a wire rack. Serve with favourite dipping sauce. Makes 6-8 servings.

Looks yummy!! Since I have a fear of pots of boiling oil I should probably consider buying a little deep fryer. :)

Absolutely! Get a deep fryer and a fire extinguisher and know how to use them both! :huggy

I think the fear of hot oil keeps me from making this too often.

Susan, do you use a deep fryer or a pot?

I have a deep fryer and I do like it, but two issues. To be big enough to cook what I need in one shot it's pretty big and they are a PAIN to clean! Yuck. When looking at possibly buying one, think about the little nooks and crannys where oil will go and how you'll clean it.

The oil can be kept in the fryer and reused several times - depending on what you're cooking and how often you use it. I use fresh oil for things like donuts and replace after things like chicken fingers or onion rings.

We use a pot. We really only deep fry once every few months. It's such a greasy mess that I never want to do it again...until the memory of the clean up fades.

I'd love to get a deep fryer but I don't have the space for another big kitchen gadget.
