Chicken Meatball Subs

For today's dinner I pulled some ground chicken from the freezer, mixed it with bread crumbs, and shaped them into meatballs. Then I fried them lightly in canola oil and kept them warm in spaghetti sauce. I also made the french bread we used for the sub rolls; the dough was made in the bread maker, then baked in the oven. On the side we have a spinach salad.

The verdict

I would never have known the meatballs were made from chicken if I hadn't made them myself. Since I discovered ground chicken I've been going crazy cooking up new ways to use it in place of red meat. The bread was a little hard to handle, we had meatballs flying all over the place! Overall, I give this meal 4 stars for taste and 4 and a half stars for health.
