Turmeric chicken bites

These can be made into larger patties for a healthy chicken burger, or shaped into smaller bite sizes to serve as a snack or with a salad. You may like to add some fresh red chilli to the mixture.

They're a great way to introduce any babies or toddlers in your household to new flavours like turmeric, coriander and ginger.
