Chicken meatballs simmered in a creamy sauce poured over rice or pasta is a favorite in my home. I just spoon some over salad when I want to go low carb. This dish is so versatile, it works for every member in my family. I like this dish because it’s super easy to make, not to mention healthy. I use a ready-made chicken meatball from Trader Joe’s but if you want to make chicken meatballs from scratch, use this recipe. It would work well with any kind of meat ball, really.  The sauce is a blended mix of onion, garlic, ginger, red peppers, tomato, coconut and some spices. Hope you like it! From my family to yours!!
