A creamy roasted red pepper feta cheese sauce drizzled (or poured in copious amounts) over perfectly cooked, bursting with flavor, chicken meatballs, and sauteed kale. This dish is everything that real food is about, whole ingredients bursting with flavor and color.
I have a little bit of a meatball thing. I love them. I literally make about 100 versions; traditional beef, teriyaki turkey, lentil vegan, paleo, gluten free, you name it I’ve got a meatball recipe for it. In the eternal battle of “who does it better” between Jordan (my hub) and I, my meatballs are better. Every single version. Although he thinks my lentil meatballs taste more like falafel, whatevs’. My chicken meatballs, the star of this dish (although that creamy feta sauce is a very close second) have been a favorite for many many years.
I started making these chicken meatballs for cheffing clients about 10 years ago, and have perfected them through the years. The creamy feta sauce is a new addition and I’m sort of glad, in an evil – twirling my mustache kind of way, that I never made that sauce in my personal chef days. Have you ever read “The Nanny Diaries”? Well, that was me – except as a personal chef. Seriously I could fill hundreds of pages with stories from those personal chef years, sometimes it’s good to look back as a reminder that I survived.
