For yogurt sauce

  • 2/3 Cups Greek yogurt

Instructions

  • Heat oil in a fry pan and saute broccoli, garlic and onion until broccoli is lightly charred.
  • Remove mixture to a food processor and take it for a spin until no large chunks remain.  Optional if no food processor is available, spread out onto a chopping board and with a sharp knife dice as finely as possible
  • In a large bowl combine chicken, egg, cheese, panko and seasonings.
  • When broccoli mixture has cooled, stir into chicken mixture.
  • Form mixture into balls.  I used an ice cream scoop.
  • Drizzle with extra olive oil
  • For Omnia:  Arrange formed balls around the cooking pan, cover and place on a pre-heated base plate.  Cooked on high for five minutes then reduce heat to medium low and continue to cook until heated through and lightly browned (about 15-20 minutes
