Instructions
  1. In a saute pan, over medium heat, add the 3 Tbsp olive oil, red onion, carrot and celery. Cook until softened. Stir in 1 tsp garlic powder and a little salt & pepper. Allow to cool.
  2. In a bowl add the ground chicken, egg, breadcrumb and the veggies. Mix until evenly combined.
  3. Form into golf ball sized meatballs.
  4. In the same pan you cooked the veggies, add a little drizzle of olive oil just to coat the bottom of the pan. Cook the meatballs until lightly golden brown on each side. Add the meatballs to a baking dish.
