If you’ve ever been to Ikea, you’ll have seen (and probably enjoyed!) their famous meatballs with cream gravy…. But why not try this version which is much lower in calories, and jam-packed full of home made goodness!  Go the whole hog and serve up with sprouts and chantenay carrots and some baby roasted potatoes for a festive feast….

Chicken & Sage Baubles with Cream Sauce

Serves 6
Preparation time 20 mins
Cooking time 40 minutes


2 packs HECK Chicken, Sage & Onion Baubles

1 medium onion finely sliced

Lo-cal oil

1 tbsp balsamic vinegar

450ml chicken stock

150g low fat cream cheese

1 tbsp cranberry sauce


Cook the Baubles according to the packet instructions.  While they are cooking, get the baby potatoes into an oven proof tin to roast – spritz with a little lo-cal oil, season and roast in the oven for 20 mins at 180°C.  Give them a good shake about half way through cooking time.

For the gravy, cook the onions over a medium heat with lo-cal oil for about 5 minutes.  Add the balsamic vinegar and cook for a further 5 minutes until soft and gently caramelised.  Turn the heat up and add the chicken stock, cream cheese, cranberry sauce and season.  Simmer for approx. 5 minutes and set to one side until ready to serve.  Taste and adjust seasoning if needed.

Slice the tops off the sprouts and carrots, then steam together for about 10-12 minutes until cooked (we used a mix of orange, white and purple for maximum colour impact!)

To serve, use a big platter and pop the potatoes at one end, veggies in the middle and the Baubles at the other end covered with the gravy.  Tuck in and enjoy!
