Crab and Corn Soup along with Golden Chicken Rice Balls is a great tasting food combination that you can make for Chinese New Year. This has both the good taste and nice texture that can make your eating experience more pleasurable.
Preparing the chicken rice ball is not that hard. Unlike in making regular meatball, this might take a little bit getting used to, but you should be able to master the technique after doing it once.
The first thing that I did was to cook the ground chicken. The cooked chicken was combined with sushi rice and mixed. The mixture should be sticky enough to hold everything together. The next step is to form the mixture into a ball. This step is somewhat tricky because the mixture tends to stick on your palm. I used a regular sized ice cream scoop to mold and hold the chicken rice balls. This also gives me the opportunity to easily stuff it with cheese. The coating is composed of egg, all-purpose flour, and Panko breadcrumbs.
One thing that you should remember when deep frying breaded food is to always control the temperature of the oil. Breadcrumbs can get burnt quickly, so make sure to start with a lower temp and adjust it accordingly based on the situation. Once the chicken rice ball turns golden brown, it is ready.
Cooking the Crab and Corn Soup is the quickest and easiest. Simply combine water and crab and corn soup mix in a pot, and then stir. You may start to turn the heat on once the mixture is fully diluted in water. The soup will start to thicken after a minute or two, so make sure to stir it often. Add the egg, stir and you are done.
I personally love this food combination. I like the crispy outer and gooey inner textures of chicken rice balls, and love its balanced flavor. The Crab and Corn soup is simple delicious. Adding a piece of egg into it even made it better. This is definitely something that you should not ignore.
