Chicken Cheesy Amazeballs

The best definition I can find to describe the word Amazeballs is:
"The superlative used when a friend shares such exciting news with you that no other word embodies the excitement you feel over it."
A friend of mine used this word the first time I heard it.  I kept trying to make it be a "thing", yet my husband and another friend cringed every time I would throw it out there...basically I gave up on it.  Until now!  These chicken meatballs are so good, no other word can embody the excitement I feel over them.  Therefore, I have brought "Amazeballs" back!  How is that for not having a Masters degree in words??? 

Since this is my own creation, I am going to guesstimate the ingredients and measurements.  You can probably add "ish" after each one...
You will need:
  • 1 lb. of ground chicken meat
  • 1 cup of shredded carrots (separate in half)
  • 1 large onion chopped (separate in half)
  • 3 cloves of garlic (separate in half)
  • 1 Tbsp. of sriracha chili sauce
  • 1 cup of breadcrumbs (may need more or less...don't put it away)
  • 2 egg whites
  • 1 cup of shredded cheddar cheese
  • pinch of red pepper
  • salt
  • pepper
  • thai sweet chili sauce (for dipping)
*Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees
1.  Ok basically I sauteed 1/2 the onions, garlic, and carrots (add salt, pepper, and red pepper) until it was cooked down and caramelized...then I put it into the fridge to cool off.  

2.  In a large bowl I combined the chicken meat, egg whites, the other half of the raw onions, garlic, and carrots, sriracha, cheddar cheese, and some more salt and pepper.

3.  After the cooked ingredients have cooled off (I gave it about 10 minutes in the fridge)...combine with chicken meat, and mush it all together.  If it is still too wet, add more breadcrumbs.  I have no clue how much I ended up throwing in there.  It seemed like I had to keep dumping more in because it was sticking to my hands too much.  Be careful though, you don't want it too dry!  You just need to be able to roll the meat in to balls without it sticking to your hands. 

4.  Spray a baking sheet with non-stick spray.  Roll the chicken meat mixture into 2 inch balls....cook for 30-40 minutes until they are golden brown.  

5. Serve with the thai sweet chili dipping good!!!!
