Yesterday we had fried chicken for dinner..and we had a fair amount of leftovers. What to do with fried chicken? I remembered my sister-in- law S, making meatballs with chicken and pasta..
I first removed the bones, then shredded the fried chicken in a food processer. A dash of steak sauce, (yes!!crazy, isn't? worked out well though..) and other assorted ingredients , and my meatballs were ready. I think any type of chicken will work out nice for this..I did'nt add too many spices , etc, since the fried chicken already has a nice taste..if you're adding pieces from a chicken curry too , I think it wil be as nice. Take a look at the picture below, and you'll understand how tasty it was. I had served the meatballs onto a platter, and I had just gone to get the camera from my room. By the time I got back, half the balls were missing!!
Chicken(cooked and shredded ) 2 cups
Pasta (macaroni is best) 1 cup
Steak sauce 2 tbsp
Pepper 2 tsp
Basil or parsley 1/2 tsp
Cheese, grated 1/2 cup

1. Cook pasta and cool. Once cool, shred coarsely in a food processer.

3. Roll into small ping pong sixed balls.
4. Roll in bread crumbs till well coated, then deep fry in hot oil.
