Chicken Meatballs in Jerk Tomato Sauce

Well I took on Tuesday off last week from Taste-Tastic Tuesday... But this week, prepare yourselves for a fabulous recipe!

I can not believe I have never tasted jerk seasoning until now. How did I live without it? It helped me create this delicious dish.

Brown basmati rice topped with mashed sweet potato and chicken meatballs covered in jerk tomato sauce:

Chicken Meatballs in Jerk Tomato Sauce

  • 1 package ground chicken

  • 2 eggs

  • 3 tablespoons spelt flour (I didn't have breadcrumbs!)

  • 1/2 cup grated carrot

  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil

  • 1 can diced tomatoes

  • 1/2 cup diced onion

  • Jerk seasoning to taste

  • In a bowl combine ground chicken, eggs, flour and carrot. Make sure it is well mixed together.

  • Coat frying pan in olive oil and heat to medium/high.

  • Form meat balls with the chicken mixture and place them in the frying pan.

  • Cook until slightly browned on all sides. Remove from heat.

  • Blend together diced tomatoes (with liquid), onion and jerk seasoning.

  • Pour into a pot and place the meatballs inside.

  • Bring to a boil then lower heat to simmer for about 10 -15 minutes.

  • Eat and be amazed!

Notes: I paired this with brown basmati rice and mashed sweet potato. Both are really easy to make. The rice is cooked using 1.5 cups of water for 1 cup of rice and the mashed potatoes are literally boiled sweet potatoes and cinnamon. Nothing else!
