I wanted to make chicken meatballs for quite some time and was never able to find a good recipe. I came across one, but modified it based on my own preferences. I thought these came our absolutely delicious and served them with pasta and marinara sauce and homemade garlic bread!

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C).

  • Combine chicken, egg, cream cheese, Parmesan cheese, garlic, olive oil, bread crumbs, basil, red pepper, garlic powder, salt, pepper, parsley, and oregano in a freezer-safe bowl and mix well. Place in the freezer for 15 minutes to make the mixture firmer and easier to handle.

  • Use an ice cream scoop or cookie scoop to form the mixture into about 14 meatballs a little larger than a golf ball. Add a piece of mozzarella cheese to the center of each meatball, making sure cheese is covered by meat. Place meatballs on a nonstick baking sheet.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until juices run clear, 20 to 25 minutes.

Cook's Note:

You may put the meatballs in tomato sauce and cook for additional 10 minutes if you want to add that extra flavor. Serve with pasta or as subs.
