For the albondigas

  • 1/2 lb chicken breast*
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/3 cup breadcrumbs
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper

For the Sauce

  • 2 tomatoes washed and chopped into halves
  • 1-2 jalapeño peppers washed, seeded, stemmed
  • 1/4 small white onion
  • 3 small garlic cloves peeled
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

You will also need

  • Baking sheet
  • Bowl
  • Aluminum foil optional
  • Blender or food processor
  • Pan

Instructions

  • Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees F (190 C).
  • Heat up the Innovasian® Chicken Fried Rice.
  • Combine 1 1/2 cups of the chicken fried rice (keep the rest for serving), ground chicken (or turkey) meat, eggs, breadcrumbs, salt and pepper. Mix well.
  • Divide the rice-meat mixture into 12-2 inches in diameter balls. Place on greased (or aluminum foil covered) baking sheet. Bake 30-35 minutes or until fully cooked.
  • While albondigas are baking, prepare the sauce. Place tomatoes, jalapeño peppers, onion, garlic cloves, water, salt, and soy sauce in a blender and mix until smooth.
  • Heat olive oil in a pan over high heat. Add sauce. When it starts to boil, lower the temperature to medium-low and let it simmer for 15 minutes. Strain and set aside.
  • Serve albondigas on top of a little bit of sauce and more chicken fried rice.

Notes

If you can't find chicken ground meat use turkey ground meat.
