Chicken Meatballs

Chicken Meatballs Recipe

I’ve been thinking about family food recently and it’s wonderful to get feedback and tips from other parents on my facebook page.  This week, I asked about including more vegetables into family food, and a reader shared a vegetable laden recipe for chicken balls.  Isn’t that cool?  That we can have that community feeling, like neighbours, even though we are scattered all around the world!  I adapted the recipe a little and it’s delicious.

    Yesterday morning i was at a loss as to what to make kiddies for dinner, for some reason i randomly thought of ur post and remembered a chicken ball recipe i read. I never hide veggies as luckily kids love most and we love talking about what each veggie does for our bodies.. (they LOVE hearing about broccoli.. haha) I ran out and quickly bought some chicken mince then in the blender threw in potato, sweet potato, carrots, zucchini, parsnip, onion, garlic, few scoops of canned kidney beans, ginger (All raw, quick and easy). When that blended mixed it in with chicken mince, egg and breadcrumbs. Rolled and browned. Put it in casserole dish and in oven. I also made brown rice and lentils together. Then grated cucumber mixed it with natural yogurt. Sooo quick and easy!!! Dished up what looked like simple meal of rice, balls and yogurt. Hidden in it was so much goodness… Kids LOVED it!!!!!!! So thanks for the idea!!

    Thanks for a lovely easy recipe. Was needing a good healthy child friendly recipe for 2 preschooler grandsons calling around for an overnight stay and found your recipe. I added a couple of tablespoons of freshly grated parmesan as well as used Panko breadcrumbs and they have turned out beautfully. I know the boys will love these.
