Ingredients

Meatballs

  • 1 ¼ lbs ground chicken
  • 3 cloves garlic peeled & chopped
  • 3 spring onions peeled & chopped
  • 2 tablespoons Cajun Spice Mix
  • 2 tablespoons fresh parsley chopped
  • 3 tablespoon olive oil

Sauce

  • 3 teaspoons Cajun Spice Mix
  • ½ cup Coconut cream tinned

Instructions

Meatballs

  • Place the chicken breast, onions, garlic, parsley and Cajun seasoning in a food processor and pulse until combined.
  • Remove the mixture from the food processor and shape into small meatballs about the size of a walnut.
  • Heat the olive oil in a large skillet on a medium heat.
  • Add the meatballs to the pan and gently cook for 5-7 minutes, turning them over to brown all sides as evenly as you can.
  • Remove the meatballs from the pan and set aside.

Sauce

  • Using the same pan (don’t clean it as we want the juices from the meatballs for this sauce), heat the butter until it melts.
  • Add the onion and garlic and sauté for 2-3 minutes until soft.
  • Add the Cajun spices and cook for a further 2 minutes.
  • Add the tinned tomatoes, coconut cream and chicken stock.
  • Stir well and simmer the sauce for about 10 minutes.
  • Add the chicken meatballs to the sauce and cook for a further 5 minutes.
  • Garnish with chopped parsley and serve.
