Instructions

2-serving instructions (4-serving modifications in red)

Wash produce before use

1

Prep the meatballs

  • Cut a small corner from the ground chicken packaging and drain off any excess liquid. Transfer to a plate; pat dry with a paper towel.
In a large bowl, using a fork or whisk, lightly beat the egg until just blended. Add the ground chicken, season generously with salt and pepper, and mix until just combined. Using wet hands, form the mixture into 1-inch meatballs.

2

Cook the meatballs

In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 to 2 tablespoons oil until hot but not smoking. Working in batches if needed, add the meatballs and cook, turning once, until browned and cooked through, 3 to 4 minutes per side. Transfer the meatballs to another large bowl; add the sweet and spicy blend and toss to coat. Add more oil between batches if needed.
While the meatballs cook, prepare the salad.

3

Make the blueberry-pecan salad

  • Juice half the lemon; cut half into wedges for garnish. [Juice 1 lemon; cut 1 lemon into wedges.]
  • Coarsely chop the pecans.
  • Strip the basil leaves from the stems; coarsely tear the leaves.
In a medium bowl, stir together 1 tablespoon [2 TBL] lemon juice and 1 teaspoon [2 tsp] oil. Add the mixed greens, blueberries, pecans, and basil and toss to coat; season to taste with salt and pepper.

Serve

Transfer the meatballs to individual plates. Serve with the blueberry-pecan salad and lemon wedges.
