Chicken and veg meatballs

Both my kids loved these chicken and veg meatballs. I doubled the recipe and made a meatloaf and meatballs. My baby girl enjoyed both variations but my toddler son preferred the meat loaf, maybe because it's softer than the meatballs. But both variations are very delicious.
