In a skillet over medium-high heat, sauté the onion and garlic with olive oil and butter until soften, about 8 minutes.

Drain some of the juices from the mixture.

Preheat an oven to 350˚F. 


Form about 35 to 38 meatballs the size of large walnuts, rolling them between your palms so they are compact and smooth. Place the rolled chicken meatballs in a lightly oiled baking dish and bake for about 20 minutes, turn over and bake for another 15 to 18 minutes. Serve warm with your favorite pasta and sauce.

Dumplings

I'm actually laughing at myself! What have I got into? Trying to make dumplings?? Well, I have seen my late grandmother make them a long time ago. I can remember the ingredients but not the measurements! So, it took me about two hours to come up with the perfect recipes, and I'm glad I did! It was an instant hit! They were all gone, all gobbled up!

Make the dough first, add about 480 to 500g of all-purpose flour with 300ml of water. Knead the dough and let it rest. You should be able to make 40 dumplings with the dough. Meanwhile, prepare the filling for the dumplings. Click here for the dumpling wrappers video.
