These chicken meatballs with apples and sage are served over fresh cranberry sauce and taste just like Thanksgiving in a bite – – hence the name. They are the perfect prelude to Turkey Day! They’re great to serve guests over this weekend or the night before Thanksgiving. On the other hand, if you want to bypass all of the fuss, you could try serving these meatballs to your Thanksgiving guests. They just might not notice the difference! Scratch that – – serve the turkey on Thanksgiving and these on the days leading up to it. All things leading up to the holidays are my favorite!
