Pasta with Homemade Chicken Meatballs

Paired with my favourite wine, we had this yummy pasta dish with homemade chicken meatballs for dinner..First time making my own meatballs..i was surprised it was really easy to make and the end result : succulent and delicious...earning me praises for the hubs...Do give this a try..the meatballs recipe is perfect for 2.

You need :

1 boneless, skinless chicken breast (minced using the blender attached with mincing blade)
1/2 big onion (chopped thinly)
1/4 cup grated cheddar + parmesan cheese
2 cloves garlic (minced)
salt and black pepper powder to taste
some chopped parsley and fresh coriander
1/2 of a beaten egg
1/3 cup breadcrumbs

olive oil for frying

Mix all the above ingredients together in a bowl and make into balls...Heat some olive oil in a non-stick pan. Place the chicken meatballs in 2 batches and pan fry till all sides are golden and meat is cooked. Remove from pan and put aside.
Meanwhile, cook your favourite pasta..I used whole wheat spaghetti. Warm up a bottle of pasta sauce..I used Prego Chunky Garden sauce. Once sauce is cooked, turn off heat, add in the meatballs and coat. Serve hot with the pasta.
