DIRECTIONS

  • First of all make the meatballs by combining all the meatball ingredients in a bowl, mixing well.
  • Shape mixture into 1 1/2 inch balls and brown in a single layer in the oil, over medium high heat, turning occasionally, until well browned on all sides, about 7 to 8 minutes.
  • Alternatively meatballs can be browned in a hot oven (I just spray a baking pan with PAM and brown them for about 10 minutes at 425*C).
  • Remove from the skillet and drain on paper towels.
  • Wipe the skillet clean.
  • Wash chicken and pat dry.
  • In a shallow bowl, combine the 3/4 cup flour, seasonings and mix well.
  • Dredge the chicken in this mixture to coat, shaking off any excess flour.
  • In skillet, heat oil over medium high heat until hot but not smoking.
  • Add the chicken and brown on all sides about 4 minutes per side.
  • Remove and set aside.
  • Pour off the oil from the skillet, leaving only a thin layer.
  • Add the chopped onion and saute over medium high heat until tender and lightly browned, about 8 minutes.
  • Stir in the 2 tsp flour and mix well.
  • Add the stock and wine, stirring gently to blend.
  • Cook until thickened.
  • Return the chicken and meatballs to skillet.
  • Cover and braise over moderate heat, stirring occasionally, for 45 minutes until chicken and meatballs are cooked through.
  • Adjust seasoning and serve with rice or little noodles.
  • Alternatively, chicken, meatballs and sauce can be layered in a covered casserole and cooked in a slow oven for several hours.
