Chicken Spinach Meatballs with Creamy Sauce

Get your warm rice or crispy sweet potato fries ready because your new favorite chicken dish is here! These chicken meatballs with creamy sauce recipe are so flavorful! I used beef broth instead of chicken and the result is amazing! So, keep in mind, when cooking chicken, it doesn’t mean you have to use chicken broth. Beef says what a wonderful idea!

Pairing these meatballs with warm rice sounds pretty straight forward. Well, what about the crispy sweet potato fries, where did you get that idea? You ask. This blazing idea came from a Canadian specialty called Poutine. Four years ago, I had my first taste of poutine in Quebec. The delicacy of french fries swimming in brown gravy and topped with soft cheese curds is a must when visiting Canada. So, are you team rice or team poutine?

I won’t blame you if you pick Team Rice. Look at it, so cute!!
