Mushroom Stuffed Chicken Meatballs

Chicken meatballs are simple and dietary dish familiar to everyone since childhood. Today I suggest preparing a new version of this recipe, which will be excellent even for the holiday table. Supplement the meatballs from chicken fillet with fragrant mushroom stuffing so that they become even tastier and more delicious. And then we stew them in tomato sauce a little so that the dish turns out juicy and literally melts in the mouth. For the recipe it is possible to use not only champignons, but also oyster mushrooms, as well as fresh or frozen forest mushrooms.
