Albóndigas de pollo con salsa de manzanas

Meatballs are one of the most traditional dishes in our gastronomy, they are loved by both adults and children. These meatballs are made of chicken, they are very soft and with the apple sauce they couldn't be tastier. The apple is going to be the star of the sauce, it gives it a soft and sweet touch and is very easy to prepare.
