Swedish Chicken Meatballs in Cream Sauce

This is a recipe of chicken meatball in cream sauce that you will like forever. It is chicken version of Swedish meatball as most Swedish meatball is made of beef or pork. I used minced chicken breast as it is healthier and you will never feel the difference from thighs, however chicken thigh could be more flavor and less dryness if you like. These fried chicken balls are full of spices and flavor and marinated in delicious cream sauce are great homemade dinner recipe that can be served with mashed potato or sauté vegetables.
