Cooking Instructions

HIDE IMAGES
Step 1
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
Step 2
In a large bowl, combine the Tyson® Ground Chicken (1 lb) , Large Egg (1) , Tomato Paste (2 Tbsp) , Extra-Virgin Olive Oil (1 Tbsp) , Fresh Mint (1/4 cup) , Garlic (2 cloves) , Shallot (1) , Ground Cumin (1/2 tsp) , and Sea Salt (1 tsp) .
Step 3
In a small food processor, pulse the Gluten-Free Oats (1/2 cup) until coarsely ground. Add to the bowl. With clean hands, mix the chicken with the other ingredients until loosely combined. You don't want to overly break up the meat.
Step 4
Form the chicken into 2-inch balls and roll in your hands until round and smooth.
Step 5
Arrange the balls on a parchment-lined baking sheet and bake in the oven until cooked through and beginning to brown on the bottom, about 20-25 minutes.
Step 6
Meanwhile, make the sauce: heat the Coconut Oil (1 Tbsp) or olive oil in a large skillet or saucepan. Saute the Shallot (1) , Serrano Chili (1) , Garlic (2 cloves) and Fresh Ginger (1 Tbsp) over medium heat until soft, 3 minutes.
Step 7
Stir in the Garam Masala (1/2 Tbsp) and Ground Cumin (1 tsp) . Cook 2 minutes more until very fragrant and paste-like.
Step 8
Carefully pour in Tomato Sauce (2 cups) . Simmer until thickened and the flavors have melded, 5 minutes. Off the heat, fold in the Greek Yogurt (1/4 cup) . Taste for seasoning and add more salt or a pinch of cayenne if you like it spicier.
Step 9
Toss the chicken meatballs with the tikka masala sauce until coated.
Step 10
Serve immediately over Brown Rice (to taste) . Garnish with Greek Yogurt (to taste) and Fresh Mint (to taste) .
