Do you ever wonder what you can do to help when someone has a baby? Has surgery? Just can’t get out of the house? Needs assistance of any kind? Make a freezer full of ready to go meal ideas, that’s what. This is our favourite way of helping anybody. Just make sure you find out first what kind of food they like to eat – after all, it is about what their household needs, not what you like to eat!! These chicken meatballs are one of the best and easiest to do – they can be frozen individually and then tossed into a large ziplock bag so that when dinner comes around they can either go on the bbq and be served with tzatsiki dip, go into a tomato sauce and become spaghetti, or just served with mashed potatoes and vegetables. The possiblities are limited only by your imagination …
2 pounds ground lean chicken meat – please use a butcher and good quality meat
1 small onion, grated
lots of fresh herbs, minced very fine – I like basil, oregano, rosemary and parsley
2 cloves garlic (don’t overdo the garlic in case you are preparing these for a nursing mother or other sensitive eater)
1/2 cup finely ground bread crumbs
Combine all ingredients and blend well (your hands are the best possible tool), then roll into balls. Toss lightly in flour and set on baking sheet. Allow to freeze individually and then put all of them in a freezer container or ziplock bag – label it!
