Chicken Veggie Meatballs Recipe

Can't get your kiddos to eat vegetables? Here's one solution: chicken veggie meatballs. They'll never know they're eating vitamin packed zucchini and carrots. These freeze and travel well so I make up a big batch to have on hand for dinners or brown-bag lunches. Serve over a bed of pasta or zucchini noodles, if you're watching calories, and top with a spoonful of marinara rich (more veggies!).
