Easy Chicken MeatBall Recipe

Dear Reader,

I made this for my husband this evening. I had chicken breasts that were reaching their shelf life, and so I made this quickly.

Chicken Meatball Recipe (Serves 2)


250 - 300g of chicken
1 egg
30g of breadcrumbs
1tsp flour
0.5 tsp Paprika
Salt and pepper to taste

8 tbsp of tomato purée
1 tbsp of shallots
20g red bell peppers
10ml oil
0.5 tsp curry powder
1 tsp basil


With a sharp knife, chop chicken into tiny pieces and add to a bowl. Add 1 egg, breadcrumbs, paprika, flour, salt and pepper to the chicken and mix well. Then make into balls. Fry the balls in a medium to hot pan until brown all over and set aside.

In the same pan, sauté shallots and bell peppers. When cooked but al dente, add tomato purée, herbs, spices and seasoning. Let it cook for 3 minutes. When bubbling a bit, add chicken meat balls and make sure that the sauce covers the meatballs.

Serve with pasta, couscous or even bread, and sprinkle some parmesan cheese if you need another protein in this dish.

Bon Appetite!


P.S: I couldn't eat this meal because it had two proteins, chicken and egg, and under my eating plan, that is not allowed. When I reach my goal weight, I will join my husband in this dish. For now, I will have a satisfying bowl of oatmeal and milk this evening.
