Chicken meatballs with spaghetti


Today I understood that I can't really remember when I had some meatballs last. So it was definitely time to make some soft and juicy chicken meatballs with some sweet and sour tomato sauce and spaghetti.

What we need:

For the meatballs:
500g minced chicken
1 onion, peeled and very finely chopped
1 garlic clove, peeled and finely chopped
50g white breadcrumbs
30 ml of milk
2 tbsp soya sauce
2 tbsp chopped flat-leaf parsley
salt and black pepper
1 large egg
2 tbsp olive oil
a pinch of oregano


For the tomato sauce:
2 tbsp olive oil
1 onion, peeled and very finely chopped
1 garlic clove, peeled and finely chopped
2 tins chopped tomatoes
100ml water
1–2 tsp caster sugar
salt and pepper
1 teaspoon of chopped basil or parsley

500 gr of spaghetti

What we have to do:

1. Mix ground chicken with chopped onion, garlic, parsley, salt and pepper, soy sauce, 1 egg, oregano. Mix bread crumbs with milk, let it sit for 5 minutes and then mix them into the meat. Shape the meatballs. I made 35 meatballs.
2. Preheat the pan with some olive oil and fry the meatballs on each side for 3-4 minutes on each side.
3. For the sauce, fry chopped garlic and onion, fry with some olive oil, season with salt and pepper, when they are soft, add tins of chopped tomatoes, water and sugar, basil or oregano. Let it simmer for 10 minutes, then add the meatballs and finish cooking.
4. Serve with cooked spaghetti. Enjoy!

  1. Sekmadienį mane buvo aplankiusi tokia pat mintis, todėl vakarienei buvo jautienos kukuliukai pomidorų padaže su spagečiais. Panašūs norai, ar ne? ;)

  3. Mano blogas tokiais momentais ir apmiršta, kai "užsėdu" ant paprasto maisto. :) Bet genialumas tikrai paprastume.
