Homemade gluten-free chicken balls

We recently made homemade chicken balls using a very simple recipe that we altered to be gluten-free as well as to our liking spice wise. These were a huge hit with the family that are definitely going to be something we make on a regular basis.
Ingredients:
  • 1/2 cup gluten-free all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup potato starch
    1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp sugar
    1/2 cup + 2.5 tbsp water
  • Spices (We used garlic powder, onion powder and black pepper).
  • Cooking oil for deep-frying
  • Cubed raw pork loin or boneless chicken breast
Heat your cooking oil to 375F or 6 for stove top.
Directions:
Cube the raw meat. Mix dry ingredients with the water. It should have the consistency of pancake batter. Mix the cubes of meat in the batter and gently place in the heated oil. Fry until they looked cooked, roughly 5 minutes on each side. Serve with pineapple, cherry sauce or whatever sauce you like.

Update; Feb/2017

We love making these simple chicken balls often and everyone enjoys them so the Mrs. decided to switch up the all-purpose flour with rice flour and a ¼ tsp. of xanthan gum. WOW is all I (J) can say! The rice flour gave them a delightful crispiness on the outside and a fluffy inside just like the Chinese restaurant we were used to eating at before my Celiac diagnosis. Fabulously amazing!
