Chicken Kale Meatballs

  • 1 lb. ground chicken
  • 1 small yellow onion, diced
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 3 strips bacon, diced
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 tbsp. olive oil
  • 2 tbsp. tomato sauce
  • 1/2 cup chopped kale
  • Preheat your oven to 400º. In a medium skillet over medium heat, add the diced bacon and cook for 3-4 minutes. Add the diced onion and the garlic and cook until the onion is translucent and the bacon is crispy.
  • Combine the ground chicken, egg yolk, 1 tablespoon of tomato sauce, kale and the bacon, onion and garlic in a large bowl. Season with salt and pepper and mix well. Form meatballs and roll into little balls, about 1 tablespoon of mixture per ball. Place the formed meatballs into a large baking dish about one inch apart. 
  • Combine 1 tablespoon of olive oil and 1 tablespoon of tomato sauce together in a small bowl and brush on top of each meatball. Pop into your preheated oven, and bake for 15 minutes. Enjoy!
