  • ¼ teaspoon allspice
  • 1 cup canned tomato sauce
  • ¼ cup cilantro, minced, plus more for garnish
  • 1 egg
  • ¼ cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 pound ground chicken
  • ½ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • Juice from 1 lemon
  • ¼ cup bread crumbs, or matzo meal during Passover
  • ¼ cup Nektar Naturals (12 packets) or more (1/2 cup total) if you want sweeter meatballs!
  • 1½ teaspoons salt, or more to taste
  • ½ cup water
  • 1 cup dry red wine (white works too actually)
  • ¼ cup white wine vinegar
  • 1 small yellow onion, small diced


  1. First saute one onion in 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil over medium heat until tender.Then add tomato sauce and wine and stir.Then add the Nektar Naturals, lemon juice, vinegar, water, allspice and salt and pepper
  2. Lower heat to medium low and let simmer.Meanwhile, mix together ground chicken, minced garlic, onion, 1 egg, minced cilantro, breadcrumbs, and I added in a squirt of Sriracha because I put it in everything!! Addicted
  3. Then form into little balls.Heat up a large skillet over medium heat and add in ¼ cup olive oil
  4. Then brown meatballs on either side
  5. This gives them extra flavor and helps them stay in ball form!Add them to the sauce and simmer for 20 minutes until the sauce is thick and the meat is cooked through.Garnish with extra cilantro and serve hot!
