Skip the takeout and make a batch of these and have everyone running to the kitchen to gobble them up!

We have a couple of places near us that serve up some quick meals but yet it’s not fast food, Waba Grill or Flame Broiler are the options nearby but we eat at home more than we eat out so if you want to try this yummy recipe, you’ll be surprised how simple it really it.

I’m eating low carb, so I haven’t been putting breadcrumbs in my meatballs, I simply don’t have them on hand and have found if I don’t keep bread items in the house, I just don’t eat them.

This sauce can be put over par-cooked strips of chicken breast as well, then continue cooking in the sauce until they are fully cooked.

I buy ground chicken it’s more readily available than it used to be or grind it myself if when I buy a large package of chicken breasts at a “club” store. You can easily make these with ground turkey too.

The food places I mentioned serve their dishes with rice, be sure to look at my post on how to cook rice 3 ways HERE for tips.

If you’re eating low carb, just pile on the veggies, sauteed cabbage, carrots and green onions make this a complete meal!

You’ll have extra sauce to pour over top of the meatballs, you could make chicken burgers and eat them on a bun and top them with the extra sauce too.

There are so many options here, mix it up and make mealtime less boring!

I use a 2 tablespoon size scoop LIKE THIS ONE to make most meatballs, I find that it’s a great size, the meatballs cook quickly and I get at least a dozen out of one pound of meatball mixture.

You can add additional water if the sauce gets too thick, and if it's not thickening up enough for your liking add some more cornstarch mixed with water and simmer the sauce until it's the right thickness.
