  • 1 lb. ground chicken
  • 1/4 cup dried breadcrumbs
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon stone ground mustard
  • 1/4 teaspoon allspice
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 tablespoon dried parsley
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper


  • 1 can Campbell's beef broth
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1 teaspoon butter
  • 1/2 tablespoon oil
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons cornstarch


  1. Mix together all the meatball ingredients.
  2. Form meat into 12 meatballs a little smaller than a golf ball. Ground chicken can be a little trickier to work with than ground beef so it is important to keep the chicken cold or it gets a little sticky.
  3. Using a large skillet, cook the meatballs in oil and butter until all sides are browned.
  4. Pour beef broth, milk and water into the skillet with the meatballs. Bring to a light simmer and cover for 5 minutes. Uncover and cook for an additional 5 minutes. Remove meatballs to a plate and bring sauce to a light boil. Let cook for about 2 minutes. Mix together cornstarch and 2-3 teaspoons of the sauce to form a thick paste. Stir this into the broth and continue to stir until broth thickens.
  5. Add the sour cream and cook about an additional minute or until it's warm and bubbly.
