How to make Easy and Delicious Oven Baked Chicken Spinach Meatballs with Spiced Tomatoes Sauce

  1. For chicken spinach meatballs :
  2. Preheat oven to 180 C/ 355 F. Grease a flat smooth 9 X 13 inch baking tray or pan.
  3. Combine spinach, ground chicken, garlic,ginger, green chillies, mint, cilantro, parmesan cheese, tandoori masala powder, salt and olive oil in a medium size mixing bowl and mix well by hand until all ingredients are incorporated completely.
  4. Apply a little oil on your hands. Divide and roll the mixture into medium size smooth balls.
  5. Place the balls on the greased baking pan. The meatballs should be one inch apart from each other. Cover and put it in freezer for 8-10 minutes.
  6. Take out the meatballs from the freezer and remove the cover. Bake in the preheated oven for 25-30 minutes till the pinkness is gone in the center and the chicken is cooked.
  7. For meatball sauce :
  8. Combine all the ingredients( listed in 'For meatball sauce') in a saucepan and simmer on low heat till the sauce thickens.
  9. Add the baked meatballs and simmer on low heat for 5 minutes or until the meatballs is coated with the sauce.
  10. Serve the meatballs hot with sauce and spaghetti or on pizza as meatball pizza.
My Tip: Lean ground chicken or lamb – You can buy ground chicken or as I always do prepare at home. Just take 3 chicken thighs or breasts(skinned and boneless but leave a little white skin for fat) and grind it coarsely in a mixer or food processor. Panko bread crumbs -These can also be easily made at home. Just take two slices of bread, toast it and then grind it coarsely in a mixer. I never use store-bought panko bread crumbs
