Ground chicken was on sale this week at the grocery store – something I don’t see often, so I figured I’d give it a try. I made this recipe a while back but it didn’t have enough of a kick that I was looking for. Added/substituted other ingredients from my previous run at this and this time it came out much better, much more tastier.
- 2 pounds ground chicken
- 2 eggs
- 2 tablespoons tomato paste
- 1/3 cup onion, chopped
- One jalapeño pepper, chopped
- 1/4 cup fresh parsley, chopped
- Few fresh basil leaves, chopped
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1 teaspoon chili powder
- Salt and pepper
Mix all the ingredients together in a large bowl. I like to use my hands to really get it mixed well. Then form medium or large sized meatballs and place on a cookie sheet or in a pyrex dish. Bake for roughly 25-30 minutes at 375 F. Then enjoy. I topped it off with a tomato sauce I quickly whipped up with a medium sized tomato diced, teaspoon tomato paste, and some dried thyme. This was only for a single serving though, since no one else is the household seems to be huge fans of tomato sauce.
