Spicy Chicken and Turkey Meatballs

My good ol’ faithful spicy chicken and turkey meatballs, cooked in a rich and spicy tomato sauce. I would usually use Turkey mince on its own for this recipe, but could only get hold of this mix, either way is fine. This mince is healthier and more succulent than beef.

Prep 20 minutes
Total 50 minutes
  • Mix together all of the meatball ingredients, with wet hands create even balls and place in the fridge for an hour, or overnight if you have the time.
  • Heat the oven to 180℃

  • Add a little more oil to the pan and add the onion and carrot cook for a few minutes.

I’m Lulu, and have been in love with food my whole life. I however took the route of fashion design and have worked within the industry for nearly 20 years, but I always shared recipes with friends and colleagues and dreamed of cooking full time. I am a previous Masterchef contestant which just confirmed I needed cooking to be part of my life plan. These days I am lucky to have a hand in both; being creative in any area is really what I enjoy.


I cook a lot of curries as my family have Indian roots, I also have a cookbook out called CURRY UP. But don’t get ‘curried’ away as I enjoy cooking most foods.


It just about sharing the food love really, nothing more. I hope what you see makes you hungry and entices you to try the recipes out!
