  • Mix chicken, 1/2 cup almonds, 1 egg, lemon juice, mustard powder, curry powder, salt, and pepper together in a bowl. Roll mixture into 12 balls using floured hands to prevent sticking.

  • Beat remaining egg in a bowl. Combine remaining 1 1/2 cups almonds and bread crumbs in a bowl. Roll meatballs in beaten egg and then in almond mixture and place on a baking sheet.

  • Bake in the preheated oven for 15 to 20 minutes.

  • Meanwhile, heat broth in a saucepan over medium heat, about 5 minutes. Whisk cream cheese into broth and gently heat while beating until smooth. Add lemon juice, parsley, and chives. Keep lemon sauce warm until meatballs are done.

  • Serve meatballs with lemon sauce.

Cook's Notes:

My family loves this recipe as an alternative to regular ground beef meatballs.

We have tried several different varieties of nuts. Almonds, cashews, and peanuts have been the most popular.
