Ingredients
Meatballs
  • 1 pound of ground chicken
  • 1 apple, finely grated with some of the moisture squeezed out
  • 2 tablespoons of chopped spinach - if using frozen spinach squeeze the moisture out
  • ½ teaspoon of chopped garlic
  • 1 tablespoon of ground flax seed
  • ½ cup of quick oats
  • 1 tablespoon of grated Parmesan
  • Dash of salt and pepper
Sauce
  • 1 cup of apple juice
  • 1 tablespoon of corn starch
  • 1 tablespoon of soya sauce
  • 2 tablespoons of vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons of brown sugar
Instructions
  1. Mix all of the meatballs ingredients together in a bowl until well combined.
  2. Cook in a large pan over medium heat. If your ground chicken is quite lean, which is usually is, you might want to add just a touch of oil to the pan to prevent sticking.
  3. Cook until the meatballs are cooked all the way through, turning them often.
  4. Remove from the pan.
  5. Add the apple juice and the corn starch to the pan over low heat.
  6. Stir well until the corn starch is dissolved and not lumpy.
  7. Add the soya sauce, vinegar and brown sugar.
  8. Continue to cook over low heat until the sauce thickens.
  9. Put the meatballs back in the pan and let cook in the sauce for a few minutes.
  10. Remove from heat and serve.
