  1. []Place chicken in a mixing bowl with onion. Set aside. In a food processor, place spinach, carrots, zucchini, garlic and pulse until finely chopped. Add to mixing bowl, along with salt, pepper, egg, and bread crumbs. Use your hands to mix thoroughly, and shape into 2 inch balls.
  2. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Cook meatballs on all sides until nicely browned. Add broth, wine and lemon, and bring to a simmer. Cover, reduce heat to medium, and simmer for 15 minutes. Remove lid, raise heat to medium high, and cook until the liquid has reduced to about 1/2 cup.
  3. Serving options:
  4. –with squash ribbons (as pictured above): using a vegetable peeler, cut yellow summer squash into long ribbons. Stop peeling when you reach the seeds, and turn the squash to another side and repeat. Saute the ribbons in a few teaspoons of butter for three minutes, just until they are heated, and act like noodles. Serve with the chicken meatballs, a little of the pan sauce, and top with grated parmesan.
  5. –add 1 cup of bottled Teriyaki sauce at the very end, and heat through. Serve over rice.
  6. –place in a pot of chicken stock, with your favorite vegetables for an easy soup
