Quick and Easy Chicken Meatballs and Homemade Mumbo Sauce | ShesGotFlavor

Don’t ask me why I decided to make chicken meatballs with mumbo sauce, just know that it was a serious home run!  One day I really wasn’t in the mood to cook; I didn’t want to be in the kitchen long.  We thought about ordering out but couldn’t decide on a restaurant.  So I just decided I’d grab whatever I could pull together quickly!  Well honey we were all happy I did!  Because the meatballs were already cooked they didn’t take long, the homemade mumbo sauce was super easy and fast and the linguini was done in a snap.  But the best part of this dish wasn’t just how fast I was able to pull it together; it was the TASTE!  OH MY this was so delicious!  The kids thanked me and hubby well he just planted a huge kiss on my cheek and me, well I gave myself a pat on the back LOL … really I did!  If you are looking for a quick meal that will taste delicious and satisfy everyone, this is it!
