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!

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.

Love the chicken meatballs and I wasn t sure that I would. I am doing a whole30 diet so I had to omit all dairy and breadcrumbs for the recipe. I added in a Tablespoon of coconut flour to bind them. I cooked in the oven for twenty minutes and then another twenty or so in a pot of bubbling sauce. The taste was fantastic and a great alternative to beef/pork! Thank you Read More
