Harissa Chicken Balls are a flavorful and spicy appetizer made with ground chicken, harissa paste, and a variety of aromatic spices. Harissa is a North African chili paste made with roasted red peppers, garlic, and spices, and it adds a delicious depth of flavor to the chicken balls.
To make Harissa Chicken Balls, you will need ground chicken, harissa paste, garlic, cumin, coriander, smoked paprika, salt, bread crumbs, and an egg. Start by mixing the ground chicken, harissa paste, garlic, cumin, coriander, smoked paprika, salt, and bread crumbs in a bowl. Add an egg and mix until everything is well combined.
Form the mixture into small balls and place them on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake in a preheated oven at 375°F (190°C) for about 20-25 minutes or until golden brown and fully cooked.
Serve the Harissa Chicken Balls hot with a side of tzatziki sauce or hummus for dipping. These chicken balls make a great appetizer for a party or a quick and easy weeknight dinner served over a bed of salad greens or with a side of rice.
