Simple Chicken Meatball Recipe
Adapted from Ofri Zuta
1 pound / 500 gr. fresh spinach leaves
1 pound /500 gr. ground chicken breast
3 oz / 80 gr. smoked bacon, finely chopped
1 medium onion- very finely chopped
½ cup breadcrumbs
1 heaping teaspoon of whole grain Dijon mustard
salt and freshly ground pepper
Quickly steam the spinach: put the leaves in a wide pan with 1 tablespoon of water. Cover and cook until the spinach has significantly decreased in size (a few minutes). Stir and continue to cook on high heat until all the liquid has evaporated. You get perfect steamed spinach, with no need to drain! Just don’t forget to stir occasionally.
Transfer to a cutting board and chop roughly- let cool.
Meanwhile, mix the ground chicken with the rest of the ingredients. I like to test a small flat patty in a hot pan to check seasoning at this stage.
Form meatballs and fry in oil or like me, transfer to a lightly oiled pan and broil/roast at 500 f / 250c until browned and cooked through, about 15-20 minutes.
