Chicken Kofta Meatballs

Recently I've subscribed to Living Without magazine. I really like reading it, and it's stuffed with many interesting recipes and tips for those living with food allergies. Tonight I tried their Kofta meatball recipe (with some modification) on the girls - happily, they got Anna's stamp of approval. I stuck the meatballs with toothpicks and called it Dinner on a Stick. Anna was impressed. Thankfully I can now add another item to the list of "Things Anna will Eat". Megan, however, was less impressed. Hopefully that is due to her feeling under the weather today, and next time Dinner on a Stick appears she'll be more willing to try it.

1 package ground chicken (about 1.25 pounds)
1/4 cup minced onion
1 beaten egg (or not)
1 generous tsp. sweet curry powder
1 generous tsp. ground coriander
2 cloves minced garlic
1/2 tsp. salt
2 tbsp. minced fresh cilantro

Mix all ingredients together until well blended. Shape into 1 inch meatballs. Cook in 2 tbsp. olive oil in hot skillet about 10 minutes, turning to brown on all sides. Serve with Apricot Dipping Sauce.

Apricot Dipping Sauce
Stir together 1/4 cup apricot preserves with 1 - 2 tsp. lemon juice, depending on taste. Serve at room temperature.
