View Full Version : Chinese Chicken Balls

12-02-2005, 10:36 PM
I ate an order tonight and I'm trying to guess how many calories it was. 12 chicken balls.

Checking the internet I'm getting anywhere from 800 to 1800 calories. Why is chinese food so hard to track down (other than the whole pure terror thing it inspires when you go to add it up)?

If you're bulking (which I think you are), low ball it. Otherwise I'd go for the average.

It was an order identical to this.

There is not a thing healthy about them at all. Chunks of questionable might be chicken but could just as easily be housecat deep fried in a batter heavy with egg, sodium, and god knows what else.

That MEAL was meant to be a bulk :evillaugh but overall I was trying to up my calories to above 2000 this week to recalculate my maintenance. I think the order of chicken balls was overkill... but so tasty.

Looks solid, thanks. Would preperation add anything? They're deep fried, after all... wouldn't they pick up oil?

Definitely not an every day food. :)

probably would pick up oil but ihave no idea how to account for that haha

I have an idea, but you'd have to regurgitate it in whole so that we can extract the oil. =)
