Chicken & Tomatoes

This is one of those creations that results from looking at what you’ve already got in the house and making something with it. It’s like the television show “Chopped” without some strange ingredient you’ve never cooked with. Let’s be honest: You’d have a difficult time making something that doesn’t taste great with chicken, bacon and sundried tomatoes.

Time: 30 minutes

Serves: 4


4 thick strips bacon – cut into matchsticks
1 pound ground chicken
1 teaspoon kosher salt
¼ teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
1 clove garlic – finely chopped or grated
¼ cup oil-packed sundried tomatoes – drained and cut into matchsticks
½ cup white wine
2 teaspoons parsley – chopped



Place a frying pan on medium heat and add the bacon. Cook, stirring occasionally until crisp. Remove the bacon with a slotted spoon and set aside. Pour off the fat from the pan.

While the bacon is cooking, use your hands to mix the chicken, salt, pepper and garlic until evenly combined. Form the mixture into eight balls.

Place the chicken balls in the pan used to cook the bacon and cook on all sides until cooked through. Remove them from the pan and set aside.

Return the bacon to the pan along with the wine and tomatoes, stirring occasionally for three minutes.

Plate the meatballs on top of the tomato and bacon mixture. Sprinkle with parsley and serve immediately.

    I may try this with Pancetta Bacon for an Italian flair! Thanks for the great ideas Kevin!

    • I love that idea! You could use ground veal in place of the chicken too. I’m glad you’re enjoying the recipes.

      Happy cooking, David!
