Spicy Chicken Rolls

Ground chicken is becoming a staple in my freezer. It's easy to prepare, cooks fast and very versatile. I'm hating ground beef nowadays because of the series of episodes of very oily beef so ground chicken is a refreshing alternative. Oh, and did I mention cheap?

I cooked the chicken rolls the night before. You will need ground chicken, garlic, egg, chili, salt and ground pepper. Just mix all ingredients in a bowl, form into rolls or meatballs or patties then fry in butter. Remember that chicken cooks fast so be alert. As always, when preparing chicken, make sure to wash the chicken properly (as well as your hands) and avoid cross contamination. When you use the chopping board to cut chicken, make sure to wash it first before cutting vegetables or other meats. Better yet, have separate cutting board for meats, fruits and veggies. The coded silicone ones are on my wishlist...

I also packed some buttered haricot verts and baby corn. That's homemade barbecue sauce on the left. To make, chop some garlic and onions and put in a blender. Add some red wine, brown sugar, honey, catsup, soy sauce, chili sauce, Worcestershire sauce and water. Pulse about 3 times then blend until the sauce is smooth. Cook for about 5 minutes on low heat. Refrigerate or freeze the remaining sauce to be used on chicken, fish or any other meat that you like.
