How to make chicken meatballs
This recipe comes together in just 5 easy steps. I like to start by prepping all of my ingredients so everything is ready to go.
Step 1: Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C) and line a baking tray with a silicone baking sheet or tin foil. Grease and set aside.
Step 2: Add all of the ingredients to a large mixing bowl.
Step 3: Stir until all of the ingredients are well combined, then let the mixture rest for about 5 minutes.
Step 4: After the mixture has rested, roll into 12 meatballs and transfer them to the baking tray.
Step 5: Place the tray in the oven and bake for 30 minutes until the meatballs are slightly golden and fully cooked through.
That’s it! You can either serve them right away or store them in the refrigerator for future use.
I like to garnish mine with a little fresh parsley before serving.
