Ingredients

For the meatballs:
  • 1 lb ground chicken
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1/4 tsp oregano
  • 1/2 tsp sage
For the sauce:
  • 1/2 medium sweet onion diced
  • 1 clove of garlic minced

  • 1-15 oz can crushed tomatoes

Instructions
  1. Heat oven to 400 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a mixing bowl, add all meatball ingredients and mix well. Rub hands lightly with a dab of olive oil and form small 1-2 inch meatballs, arrange on the baking sheet (yielded about 30 meatballs for me).
  3. Place the meatballs in the oven and bake for 15 minutes. Remove.
  4. Spiralize your sweet potatoes. In a pan over medium to high heat, heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Add the sweet potato noodles and cook for 5-10 minutes until they are your desired texture, turning frequently with tongs to keep from burning. or becoming stuck.
  5. In a large skillet, heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil over medium heat. Add the onion and garlic to the pan and cook until the onion is translucent.
  6. Add the tomatoes, syrup, water and spices to the pan and stir for a couple minutes, until the sauce is mixed well. Lower heat to low-medium.
  7. Add the meatballs to the sauce. Stir for about five minutes.
  8. Serve meatballs and sauce over the sweet potato noodles. Enjoy!
