Made into balls and drizzled with a tasty creamy sauce once baked…


  • For the chicken meatballs
  • 1 lb ground chicken

  • 1 large egg

  • 1/2 cup sunflower seeds

  • 2 tbsp fresh rosemary, chopped

  • 3 cloves garlic, minced

  • 1 tsp sea salt

  • 1/4 tsp black pepper

  • For the sauce
  • 1 cup heavy cream

  • 2 tbsp fresh rosemary, chopped

  • 2 cloves garlic, minced

  • 1/2 tsp sea salt

  • 1/2 tsp ground thyme

  • 1 pinch black pepper


  • Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or foil.
  • In a food processor, pulse the sunflower seeds until they are a fine “meal” consistency.
  • Transfer the sunflower seed meal to a bowl. Whisk in egg. Stir in rosemary, garlic, sea salt, and black pepper. Add in ground chicken. Mix with your hand until well combined.
  • Form 1-inch (2.5 cm) balls with the chicken mixture. Place them onto the lined baking sheet.
  • Bake in preheated oven for 10 to 12 minutes, until barely cooked through. Switch to broil and broil for 3 more minutes.
  • To make the sauce, combine all the sauce ingredients in a medium saucepan. Simmer for 10 to 15 minutes, until thick and reduced in volume by half. Adjust salt to taste.
  • When the meatballs are done, skewer with appetizer forks and drizzle the sauce evenly over them. Serve.


  • When pulsing the sunflower seeds, make sure that you do not over-process them, you’ll make seed butter, otherwise. And, if the sauce is too thick, you can thin it out with more cream.
