Yummy And Healthy Sunday Recipe: Herbed Chicken Meatballs

October 15 2017

This is such an easy and quick dinner to make that you can have it on the table in 30 minutes!

You don’t have to serve these with pasta, you can serve with mashed potato, polenta or even brown rice.

This recipe took a shortcut by using pasta sauce from a jar, however, you can make your own with canned tomatoes, onions, garlic, and herbs.

Serve with a small side salad drizzled with balsamic vinegar.
