Chicken & Basil Rissoles

I don't use chicken mince much, but after making these tasty little rissoles, I think I'm a convert!  The recipe is from a Rosemary Conley book I got from the library.  It literally takes 5 minutes to mix together the ingredients, then you just whack it in the oven, chop up a salad, and dinner is on the table in no time!

These are just 90 calories per rissole, or would also make fantastic meatballs if you rolled up smaller balls.  I served them with some home-made relish and they were absolutely delicious!

Ingredients (makes 8 rissoles)
450g lean chicken mince
1 red onion, finely chopped,
1 garlic clove, crushed
2 teaspoons curry poweder
1 tablespoons chopped fresh basil
2 teaspoons stock powder
1 tablespoon mango chutney

Preheat the oven to 200 degrees celsius.

Place all the ingredients in a large bowl and mix well.  Mould the mixture into 8 equal pieces.  Using wet hands, shape into palls and place a non-stick baking tray.

Cook in the oven for 20 minutes.

Serve hot or cold with salad and extra chutney if desired.

Oh i'm pretty intrigued about the taste of this! I'm guessing the mango chutney adds a nice sweetness to it?
