I found this recipe on Pinterest and twisted it up a bit to fit my style of cooking. If you like chicken, you will love this low calorie, full of flavor dinner! I served it with wheat couscous and made a little veggie salad of sorts to mix in with the couscous once it was cooked. You could add ANYTHING you want to the couscous. This is what I happened to have on hand.
Baked Chicken Meatballs w/ Roasted Tomato Sauce
1 lb. ground chicken
1 cup shredded parmesan cheese
1/4 cup fresh chopped basil
salt and pepper
1 egg 2 tbsp. homemade roasted tomato sauce
Roasted Tomato Sauce
4 to 5 small tomatoes
3 cloves garlic
salt and pepper
Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Put tomatoes, onion, and garlic on a cookie sheet. Salt and pepper them and coat with olive oil. Roast for 20 minutes or until they begin to char a little. Pour into blender and blend until smooth. Then pour into pan on the stove and simmer on low while you make the chicken meatballs.
Put chicken, parmesan cheese, basil, egg, tomato sauce, salt and pepper into a bowl and mix gently.
On a greased cookie sheet, form chicken into small meatballs. Put a small spoonful of the roasted tomato sauce on top of the meatball.
Lower oven to 400 degrees. Bake 15 minutes. Serve the chicken meatballs with a little of the tomato sauce on top.
Serve with wheat couscous. I chopped basil, fresh zucchini, and tomato and mixed that with the couscous along with a little parmesan cheese.
Citing Ty Herndon as inspiration yesterday... Billy Gillman filmed a video and uploaded it to YouTube. He is also gay.

Good for you, Ty. I support your courage and hope you can be a role model...
