Minced chicken and mushrooms make succulent meatballs – delicious simmered in a smooth tomato sauce with red and green capsicums. Paprika warms the flavour and new potatoes turn it into a complete one-dish meal.
When eaten regularly and in quantity, potatoes are a useful source of vitamin C – new potatoes contain the most, and eating them unpeeled retains the maximum goodness as the nutrients are concentrated under the skin.
This is fabulous! The chicken balls are delightfully soft, the tomato sauce is lightly spiced enough so that our toddler still happily ate it. I like things spicy, so i added a little tobasco to mine at the table. The only things I did different was use olive oil instead of margarine, because we don't buy margairine, and i added a fair bit of water to the sauce prior to putting the chicken balls in, to make sure they were all covered. But I did everything else exactly as described, and it was great - extremely easy and very substantial. A great do-ahead dinner too - could easily make the sauce and the mushroom mix the day ahead, just add the chicken and egg prior to cooking... The kids loved this one. I loved the simplicity of it (and less pots to clean!), husband loves anything you can put yoghurt on (or in this particular case, sour cream). An economical and easy one-pot meal, thoroughly enjoyed by all. I am very glad I found this recipe, will be making this one again and again! - 15 Oct 2010
My family all found this to be way to much tomato. The taste of the tomato overpowered everything. Not sure what went wrong as I followed the recipe. Not to our liking, sorry. - 21 Jun 2013
