Chicken Heart Tuna Meatballs - With Oven Baked Broccoli
These chicken heart tuna meatballs are a delicious and extremely nutritious alternative to standard meatballs with ground beef. This preparation method is a great way to disguise the chicken hearts and get yourself and potentially your children, too, to eat this healthy meat if you are not familiar with it yet.

Instructions
Meatballs
  1. First, mince the chicken hearts and onion in a food processor for about 10 seconds on a high speed
  2. Next, add the remaining ingredients for the meatballs, including seasonings and mince for another 20-30 seconds until it is a homogenous mixture
  3. Preheat a pan with about 30 gram coconut oil, lard or whatever you prefer to medium heat
  4. Use a tablespoon and your other hand to form the meatballs from the mixture and place them in the pan

  5. Turn down the heat to low, put a lid on the pan and fry the meatballs slowly for about 10 minutes, until they start to become solid on the top, too
  6. Now, you can flip and slowly fry them with the lid on for another 5-10 minutes
  7. Finally, set the heat to medium-high and fry the meatballs as evenly as possible from all sides, for about 5 minutes, in order to get a nice brown colour and roasting flavors
Broccoli
  1. While the meatballs are frying, you can easily prepare some oven baked broccoli as a side dish. First, set your oven to 180°C-200°C.
  2. Put the broccoli on a baking tray which goes into the oven. After 5-10 minutes, the broccoli should be thawed and you can sprinkle some salt on top.
  3. Finally, bake it for another 20-25 minutes until it starts to become dark brown on the top and has a slight crispiness.
Recipe Notes

As you can see on the picture I made a creamy sauce to go with everything, too. If you want to know how to make it check out this asparagus cream sauce recipe.
