Delicious meatballs served with a mixture of sauerkraut and onions with rice and crushed tomatoes.

1/4 cup skim milk

1/2 tablespoon olive oil
27 ounces sauerkraut, canned and drained
1/2 cup onions, chopped
3/4 cup long grain rice, uncooked
1-1/2 cup water
14-1/2 ounce crushed tomatoes
In a mixing bowl, combine egg white, milk, bread crumbs, salt, and black pepper. Add chicken and mix well. Shape into 12 meatballs. In a skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Add meatballs and cook until no pink remains in chicken. Remove meatballs from skillet.
In same skillet, combine sauerkraut and onions. Stir in rice and water. Add balls and crushed tomatoes. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer, covered for 30 minutes or until rice is done.
Not all ground poultry is as healthy as one may think. Ground turkey or chicken often includes the skin and dark meat, adding a lot of fat and calories. Look for lean or breast on the label to ensure it includes only breast meat, which is much leaner.
