> 2 tbsp basil, plus whole leaves to serve meatballs on
> 7 oz chicken thigh filet
> 10.5 oz turkey thigh cubes
> 3 slices white bread
> 6.5 tbsp low fat milk
> 2.5 oz Parmesan cheese
> 5.3 oz minced chicken
> 1 tsp salt
> 2 eggs
> 1/2 cup leeks


Preheat the oven to 375°F.
Finely chop half of the basil. Put the parsley with the chicken and the turkey in the food processor and grind it until it is minced.
Cut the crust off the bread. Pour the milk in a deep plate and let the bread soak in the milk. Grate the cheese.
Put the chicken-turkey mixture in a bowl and add the minced chicken, salt, cheese and eggs. Wring the bread and stir in.
Wash the leeks, cut it very fine and mix it in.
Make small balls from the minced chicken-turkey mixture, put them on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and bake for approx. 20 min. in the middle of the oven. Turn over halfway through.
Let them cool for 15 min outside the oven.
Put each ball on top of a leaf of basil. Serve on a large dish.


You can make the balls up to 2 days in advance. Refrigerate while covered. Let them come up to room temperature before starting step 8.
