"I love the idea of using chicken in a meatball recipe. It is much lighter than the ground beef mixture. This recipe has the right idea but it just needs a few changes. They seemed a little Bland for our tastes. I also found that the Nuts softened up while the mixture chilled. It is a good base on which to work with.
