Protein packed Thai chicken meatballs

If you love a 30 minute meal as much as we do, you’ll love these Thai Chicken Meatballs.

Sent in by 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge member Cassie, they’re ‘packed full of flavour, and a quick meal that will become a family favourite!’

Cassie serves hers with a sweet potato mash and some steamed greens, but of course you can customise the side dishes to suit your own family’s tastes.

They also reheat well for a quick lunch the next day with leftover veggie or a big salad.
