How to cook chicken meatballs in mushroom and basil sauce

This is a mouth watering dish combining meatballs, mushrooms and basil with a touch of paprika - served on pasta or rice.

Lets get all the ingredients ready for the sauce - 2 onions, handful of basil leaves, mushrooms, 2 garlic cloves, paprika, salt & pepper

Chop the two onions

Slice up all the mushrooms

Olive oil in

Fry the onions until softened and clear

Add in the mushrooms

Add in basil, garlic, paprika, salt & pepper

Close the lid and let the mushrooms cook for a few minutes until softened, medium heat

Let prepare the chicken mix - minced chicken, a few chopped basil leaves, 2 garlic cloves, bread crumbs (I use Panko personally), 1 grated onion, salt & pepper

Grate the onion and add it in the mix

Stir well

By now the sauce should smell and look amazing - give it a quick taste

Add a half to a cup of water to the sauce - don't put too much, see picture in the next slide

Create golf ball size meatball from the chicken mix and set in the sauce

Cook on low heat for 45 minutes. If you need add in some water as you go

Add sauce to pasta or rice
