DIRECTIONS

  • Add rice to a saucepan of boiling water and cook for 15-20 minutes, or as per rice packet instructions. Drain and rinse with cold running water.
  • In a bowl, combine the minced chicken, 1 chopped onion, parmesan, breadcrumbs, cooked rice and basil. Roll rounded tablespoons of the mixture into balls and place on a tray. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour.
  • Coat a large frypan with the oil spray, add the extra 2 chopped onions and 1/4 cup of the chicken stock, stirring until the onions are soft.
  • Add the chicken balls to the pan, and cook - covered - for 10 minutes.
  • While the chicken balls are cooking, add the pasta to a large pot of boiling water and boil uncovered until 'al dente' (just tender) - or as per the pasta packet instructions. Drain and set aside.
  • Add the remaining stock and pasta sauce to the cooking chicken balls and simmer - covered - for a further 5 minutes.
  • Add the chopped parsley to the pan and simmer - uncovered - for another 10 minutes.
  • Serve the chicken balls and sauce over the pasta, and sprinkle with extra parmesan and parsley, if desired.
