1. In a large bowl, mix all of the meatball  ingredients together. Continue mixing until well combined. Form the mixture into approximately 20 - 22 meatballs and set aside.

2. Warm a little extra olive oil in a Tefal Unlimited Induction Non-Stick Frypan 32 cm, add the meatballs over medium-high heat. Colour the meatballs till golden on all sides.

3. Push meatballs to one side. Add in the flour, cook for a few minutes before whisking in the chicken stock, mix continuously till the sauce thickens. Agitate the pan to mix through the meatballs.
