500g HECK Spring Chicken Mince
Packet of Mozzarella balls
Bread crumbs or a gluten-free alternative
Olive oil
½ red onion
1 clove of garlic
2 red peppers
2 cans of chopped tomatoes
200g chopped cherry tomatoes
1 tsp tomato puree
2 fresh chillies
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp paprika
2 tsp of cayenne pepper (but can put as much as you desire)
Salt & pepper
Handful of chopped fresh parsley
Handful of chopped fresh basil
Handful of chopped fresh coriander



  • Preheat over to 160 degrees
  • Using your hands and mould a handful of chicken mince around a ball of mozzarella.
  • Empty the panko bread crumbs (we used rice flour) into a bowl
  • Roll each meatball in the crumbs
  • Put a drop of olive oil in a frying pan over a medium heat
  • Add the meatballs and fry for about 3-4 minutes so they begin to brown, then remove from the heat
  • In another frying pan, add another splash of oil followed by your onions, peppers and a little salt. Fry off for about 3-4 minutes.
  • Now add the garlic, cumin, paprika, cayenne pepper & chilli. Fry for a further couple of minutes.
  • Add the cherry tomatoes (and sundried if you fancy those too).
  • Pour in the tinned tomatoes followed by the tomato puree, coriander & parsley. Add a splash of water and tea spoon of sugar. Season, then bring to the boil. Reduce to a simmer for about 15 mins.
  • Make little holes in the pan and add your meatballs to the tomato mix
  • Add a sprinkle of cheese over the top
  • Put in the oven and bake for 10-15 minutes
  • Remove from the oven.
  • Serve straight away with a bed of salad leaves.
