The effects of various mixtures of pork leg meat and chicken breast meat, ranging from 0 to 100% on quality attributes of raw meat-emulsion batters and kung-wans were investigated. Increasing the content of chicken breast meat altered the color by increasing lightness and yellowness, increased protein solubility, and increased hardness. Hardness and springiness play important roles in kung-wan, and consumers prefer those having a firmer, harder texture. The emulsion stability changed with different mixtures of pork leg meat and chicken breast meat. With mixtures of meats, the emulsion stabilities were lower. The treatments which containing chicken breast meat had a higher storage modulus than 100% pork leg meat at temperatures higher than 60°C, and so had better texture. The results showed that chicken breast meat, at 50% substitution for pork leg meat, improved the quality of kung-wan.
