Mary-nated Chicken Balls

In honor of my mother’s Mary Coutinho’s 70th surprise birthday, I wanted to create an appetizer that would contain all the flavors she loves in one small bite. And hence I created the Mary-nated Chicken Balls. Middle Eastern spices elevate this chicken ball to an exotic status and this is the perfect make ahead and reheat appetizer to serve at a party for fuss free entertaining.

Needless to say the party was a bit hit. My mother was so surprised and I’ve never seen her this happy. She enjoyed all the food and danced the night away, Happy Birthday Mommy!
