I just love meatballs and these are a prefect spring dinner. I served over sauteed spinach and Oh my God amazing! These were ready in 30 minutes and a perfect one-pot dinner.

  • 3 tablespoons olive oil

  • 4 leaves fresh sage

  • 1 pound ground chicken

  • 1 egg

  • ¼ cup almond flour

  • 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese

  • 1 teaspoon dried sage

  • 1 teaspoon dried parsley

  • 1 teaspoon sea salt

  • ½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

  • 1 (8 ounce) package sliced fresh mushrooms

  • 1 large shallot, minced

  • 1 cup low-sodium chicken broth

  • cup Marsala wine

  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter

  • 2 teaspoons arrowroot flour


  1. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Swirl in olive oil and heat until very hot. Add sage leaves; fry until crisp, about 1 minute per side. Transfer sage leaves, using tongs, to a plate lined with paper towels. Remove skillet from heat, reserving oil.

  2. Mix ground chicken, egg, almond flour, Parmesan cheese, sage, parsley, salt, and pepper together in a large bowl. Form into balls using an ice cream scoop, a tablespoon, or your hands.

  3. Reheat oil in the skillet over medium heat. Cook meatballs until browned on all sides, about 7 minutes. Add mushrooms and shallot; cook until tender, about 5 minutes.

  4. Stir chicken broth, Marsala wine, butter, and arrowroot flour into the skillet. Cover and cook, stirring once, until sauce thickens slightly, 5 to 7 minutes.
