Pre-heat the oven to 200° C and line a baking tray with nonstick baking paper.

Place the chopped chicken breast, egg, red chilli pepper, parsley leaves and seasoning in food processor. Pulse until the chicken is finely chopped and all the ingredients come together in a homogenous mixture. Transfer to a mixing bowl and shape tablespoons of the mixture into small balls between oiled palms.

Arrange evenly spaced apart on the prepared baking tray. Bake for 20-25 minutes until cooked through, with no pink showing. Remove and allow to cool a little before stacking on a serving plate. Skewer with cocktail sticks and serve.
