Chicken meatballs - please help me dress them

sasha1 | Oct 3, 2007 11:32 AM

My family members are not tremendously picky, but they are each picky in a different way - can anyone relate? So the end result is that I'm at a loss with respect to how to serve some chicken meatballs I planned to cook tonight.

My basic recipe is ground white meat chicken, minced onion and garlic, s&p, egg. I have some bread crumbs I can throw in, some parsley, grated ginger possibly or parmesan (depending on which part of the world I'm heading into).

I need an idea for saucing them. One of my kids doesn't like tomato based sauces. He also has a nut allergy, so pesto is out. My dh is not a fan of dairy based sauces, so alfredo-esque and stroganoff are out.

I'm open to putting the meatballs in a soup or stew too. I think I did a honey/mustard/chicken broth reduction once that went over well. Sweet and sour might work. What is the gravy swedish meatballs are served in? Any other thoughts?

All ideas taking into account the above parameters (no tomato or cream based sauces, no nuts) are most welcome.
