Easy & family-friendly, our Thermomix Chicken Meatballs are made from chicken mince, sweet chilli sauce and soy sauce. Great for kids and toddlers!
With our little toddler in the house, I'm always on a mission to make yummy little snacks that can be eaten for lunch, dinner, popped in lunchboxes, or frozen... and these Thermomix Chicken Meatballs are exactly that!
You can serve them on their own, with a salad or vegetables, or even toss them through some pasta or rice. They're super versatile and yummy!
I like to prepare the mixture in the Thermomix and then bake them in the oven in mini-muffin tins. The muffin tins help the meatballs to cook evenly and keep their shape perfectly.

Thermomix Chicken Meatballs
- 500 grams chicken mince
- 30 grams breadcrumbs
- 1 teaspoon minced ginger
- 1 tsp minced garlic
- 2 tbs soy sauce
- 2 tbs sweet chilli sauce, plus extra for brushing
- 1 tbs lime juice
- sesame seeds, to sprinkle
- Preheat oven to 210 degrees celsius (fan-forced).
- Lightly spray a non-stick mini-muffin tray with cooking spray and set aside (see notes).
- Place all ingredients (except for the sesame seeds) into the Thermomix bowl. Mix on Speed 5, 10 seconds. Scrape down the sides of the bowl and repeat for a further 5-10 seconds, or until well combined.
- Roll into 1 tablespoon-sized balls and place into the prepared mini-muffin tin (see notes). Cook in the oven for 15 minutes.
- Brush over the extra sweet chilli sauce and sprinkle with sesame seeds. Cook for a further 2 minutes, or until cooked through.

My exceptionally fussy 2 1/2 year old devoured 6 of these. There can be no higher praise than that. Thank you
Hahaha! Yes you're very right! Toddlers acceptance is the best praise going round!
Do you think I can double the batch in my TM6 ?
The mixture won't combine as well if you double the batch and you do need to be careful about overloading the motor. To minimise the manual mixing, or to prevent the mince from being completely blitzed, it would probably be better and safer to just do 2 batches.
I love these.. had some Turkey Mince so used that ..
Next time I will add some Five Spice Powder for another hit of flavour..
Is there an alternative to sweet chilli and the sesame seeds? Thank you!
Hi Song, you can omit them if you prefer - or you could try BBQ sauce?
Anne Boyle says
Made these tonight. So yum. Will always have chicken mince in the freezer. Thank you for a great recipe.
Is this recipe able to be used in the tm31 thermomix? They look so yummy!

Hi.. Lucy, can you use rice crumbs instead of bread crumbs? Reckon will work?
Hi Evelyn, to be honest I've never used rice crumbs before so I'm not sure on their texture! I'd love to hear how they go!
Recipe looks tasty - going to give it a go... At what stage do you freeze - raw or cooked?
Lucy Mathieson says
Hi Kate, I generally freeze any leftovers after cooking and reheat when I need them.
cheers to the chicken meatballs, it looks delicious.
Looks very tasty and yummy!!! Thank you for sharing
