Whole30 Baked Chicken Meatballs
In your Dutch Oven add your onion, garlic and olive oil and cook on a medium heat for a few minutes until your onions have gone soft.
Add your fresh tomatoes and courgettes, along with your seasonings (everything but the oregano and basil) and cook for a further 5 minutes.
Add your tinned tomatoes, bring to the boil and then simmer for 5 minutes.
While it is cooking make your meatballs. Using chicken (or turkey) mince place it in a mixing bowl with a small diced onion, tomato puree, teaspoon of garlic, mustard, basil and oregano. Mix well and make them into medium sized meatballs.
Place the meatballs into the Dutch Oven and cook in the oven for 40 minutes at 200c.
You can also use other mince but I love the flavour of chicken mince and it is much healthier than using pork mince.
When I buy tinned tomatoes I buy the plum variety in the 500g tins and it’s the perfect size for a casserole or stew.
