This was supposed to be meatballs but the meat didn't want to ball (and yes, I know that's just ripe for all kinds of jokes). So, I threw lumps in there and let them cook for a bit before stirring it around ;) Either way it tasted pretty darn good and Andrew and Dylan both liked it.
We get 40-lbs of chicken breast a couple of times a year. We freeze most of them as individual boobs but I take about 10-lbs of them and the fat that I trim off of the others and run it through the meat grinder. That's what I used for the meat in this sauce. You could use any ground meat you have laying around and I'm sure it would be great.
Chicken Meat Sauce
1 lb ground chicken
1/2 c mozarella, shredded (leave out if you have a dairy sensitivity, or if you don't have any on hand)
1 T ketchup
4 T dried parsley
1 1/2 c chicken broth
1 6oz can tomato paste
1 T olive oil
1 tsp - 1 T garlic, chopped
1/2 tsp dried thyme and basil
dash of honey
Add all of the meat ingredients to a bowl and mash together with your hand.
Add all of the sauce ingredients to a wide bottomed pan, bring to a simmer. Drop the meat or meatballs (if yours will ball) in about 1-in "balls" into the sauce. Let simmer, stirring periodically until they are cooked through. Serve over quinoa or pasta or rice or whatever your family likes sprinkled with a little salt and fresh cracked pepper!
