Baked chicken meatballs recipe

Posted in Recipes.

These yummy baked chicken meatballs are one of my kids favourite meals, mostly because they like to help me make them (and they can also eat them with their hands!)

I like to serve these with some roasted veggies, pasta or on their own with some tomato relish to dip them into. This is a great easy recipe for those nights when you need food on the table fast – and it can also be made in advance and frozen until needed.

  • Use a tablespoon to scoop up the chicken mixture and shape into balls. If you find the mixture is still a little “wet” you can add some more breadcrumbs to help it stick together and shape into balls more easily.
