Chutney Chicken Meatballs

Author Notes: My favorite way of cooking meatballs is poaching as they keep very moist. Of course they are perfect for soup, but I've experimented and find I enjoy them as an appetizer accompanied by a dip as well. These chicken meatballs are full of flavor yet are low in fat and calories.REC
