Scarf’d: Valentine's Day Dog-Friendly Chicken Meatballs

While we believe in sharing the love with those we care about year-round, it’s still fun to have a special day to celebrate.

Save yourself the hassle of going out this Valentine’s Day and make these chicken meatballs for the most loyal Valentine in your life. Let’s be honest, that pup has been through it all with you—the good, the bad, the ugly— always by your side with a shoulder to lean on.

We serve our chicken meatballs as is, but you can always make it a full meal with spaghetti squash noodles, à la Lady and the Tramp!

Buon appetito!
