Chicken Meatballs in Saffron Tomato Sauce


We are always on the lookout for suppers that are fast, fresh, and healthy. These flavorful chicken meatballs check all three boxes.



In a food processor, process the onion. Add it to the ground chicken with the egg, bread crumbs, salt, pepper, and turmeric. Mix very well.


In a large skillet, heat up one tablespoon of olive oil. With wet hands, form meatballs and flatten them a little. Sear the meatballs for about three minutes on each side.


Place half a cup of hot water in a small bowl and add the saffron. Let it infuse for a couple of minutes.


In a large pan, heat up one tablespoon of olive oil. Add the tomatoes, salt, pepper, paprika, and saffron water and cook for 10 minutes. Mash the tomatoes well with a potato masher.


Add the meatballs and cover. Cook on a low fire for 20 minutes.
