Chicken balls
1 pound lean chicken or turkey mince
3 cloves of garlic

1 tsp dried thyme or mixed herbs
Finely grated rind of one lemon

For the sauce
1 tsp vegetable oil
One small onion, chopped

Black pepper to season



  1. Place the bread and garlic in a food processor and blend until finely chopped.
  2. Add the mince, lemon rind and herbs and mix together.
  3. Lightly grease a non-stick baking sheet or tray with vegetable oil.
  4. Pre-heat the oven 350 if a fan oven, 400 otherwise
  5. Using a little flour to prevent the mixture sticking to your hands, form the chicken mixture into balls and place on the baking sheet. You should be able to make about 12–14.

  7. Make the tomato sauce. Heat the oil in a non-stick saucepan and gently fry the onion and garlic.
