These chicken romano meatballs are delicious. Little balls of chicken, lemon, garlic, herbs, red pepper flakes and cheese (!!). Good. Yummy. Simple. Tasty. Those are the adjectives for today. Serve over rice, spaghetti squash, pasta or simply on a bed of baby spinach. The hot sauce wilts the spinach and it retains its shape and crunch a bit. I happen to love that. When reheating I add some cherry tomatoes too – and what a delightful lunch it makes.
The recipe come from Skinnytaste.com and you know I’m a fan. I have most of Gina’s books and I enjoy her blog. There is nothing tricky about this recipe. Follow it and you shall see. I made the meatballs as instructed – but for the sauce, I put whole garlic cloves in because I find minced garlic is often too strong for me. Getting older – the garlic – indigestion. I also added some Glace De Poulet Gold (very reduced chicken stock) for added flavor and also a bit more salt and pepper than the recipe calls for. So taste and taste again, re-season and serve!
