    Very popular. Used 1kg of chicken in end as had a fair bit of spinach filling left over.

    Absolutely delicious! Big hit in our household and will be a regular from now on. I had plenty of mixture for the centres left over so have frozen this for the next time I make it. I've also featured your recipe on my Thermie FB page for my followers to see, here's the link:

    We made these last week and they were beautiful. A great way to get spinach into my 1 and 4 year old girls. I followed the lead of the previous comments and cut the cheese mixture in half, and we still had plenty. I also made mine into smaller balls for my girls, and they were perfect, so they'd be a fantastic party food.

    Absolutely delicious!  Made 1kg of the chicken and twice the crumb mixture because I had plenty of the cheesy spinach mixture which easily gives you for 2 batches as is. Very tasty and yummy. Saved in my favourites

  • This was delish thank you! I

    Submitted by nchila on 19. April 2016 - 21:07.

    This was delish thank you! I substituted the cashews for almonds and a few sunflower seeds, and cream cheese for ricotta and it worked perfectly. Also used tasty cheese (not moz) and just cubed it, not grated to save time. Heaps of spinach/cheese mixure left over so have frozen in ice cube trays for next time (enough for at least 2 more batches). Thanks..kids all loved it. Will be a regular in our house! Quick, heathly(ish!) and yum!
