Chicken Meatballs in a Spicy Tomato Sauce

I never really gave chicken mince a thought until I had a few breasts that needed to be used - so decided to mince them. To my surprise, they're very yum, and a great change from beef!

Please note - this recipe can be exchanged for any other ground meat!

This recipe - without the addition of the spicy tomato sauce would be great for kids too (I should mention my son likes the spicy bit too...lol)


Ingredients:

2 chicken breasts, minced (or 200g chicken mince)
1 egg white
1.5 tbs Heba pap
Salt and Pepper to taste
Holsum or coconut oil etc for frying
4 tomatoes
small tomato paste
sprig rosemary
1 tbs sweetener
1/2 cup water
