Tasty Chicken Meatballs with Mashed Potatoe

Made my chicken meatballs today! They were slightly burnt but tasty!

Here’s the recipe

0.5 kg ground chicken
1 egg
1 Tablespoon chopped Green onions
2 tablespoon chopped Onion
Two chopped toes of Garlic
Half of a chopped Tomato
1 tablespoon ketchup
Ground pepper to taste

Combine all ingredients in a bowl (use a spoon, what ever, I used my hands). Prepare frying pan with a couple teaspoons of olive oil at medium heat. Scoop chicken mixture into little balls and place them on the frying pan. Make sure non of them touch each other. I cooked mine in two batches. After they’ve cooked for a couple minutes (or burnt…) flip them over and cook until meat inside is no longer pink.

I also cooked up a mashed potatoe to eat with my chicken balls.

I estimate this lunch cost around $3 ($2.50 for 6 meatballs and 0.50 for the mashed potatoes) Now I have some onion to eat with my perogies!
