  • Just mix everything together in a big bowl, including the egg
  • Beat with a fork, or as I do, with your hands, to make the mixture light and as airy as possible, considering it's chicken. This should take around five mins
  • Lightly grease a microwaveable plate with butter, and put small amounts of the mixture, shaped roughly into balls, on the plate. I make mine about the size of red grapes
  • Microwave for 5 mins, with the setting at medium high. You will have to adjust the microwave setting and time according to the make of the microwave
  • Take out and serve
