Today on The Stay At Home Chef I’m
showing you how to make Easy Baked Chicken Meatballs
If you’re avoiding red
meat or you just need a leaner, more
healthy option, chicken meatballs are
always a great choice! They’re super tasty!
To start you’ll want to preheat an
oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit and
lightly grease a 9 by 13 pan or a baking
sheet with a little bit of nonstick
cooking spray or you can use parchment
paper. You’ll need 1 to 1 1/2 pounds
of ground chicken or you can use
this same recipe with ground turkey and
make turkey meatballs. Then add in 3/4 cup of plain dried breadcrumbs,
1/2 cup of freshly grated Parmesan cheese
which is a great binding agent.
You’ll also need some minced garlic and I like
to use 2 to 3 cloves, 2 teaspoons of
dried basil, 1 teaspoon of salt, and then
about 1/4 teaspoon of red pepper flakes
to add a little heat. Add in your wet
ingredients starting with 1 egg, 1 to 2
tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil
olive oil. It is optional but it does make
for a juicier meatball but if you’re
watching your calories you can always
leave it out. Last you’ll need 2
tablespoons each of milk and worcestershire sauce
Then we’ll use our hands and get
right in there and knead it all together.
You want all of the ingredients to be
evenly dispersed throughout the ground chicken.
While your hands are nice and
dirty, pinch off a little piece and form
them into one to one-and-a-half inch
meatballs and then place them onto the
prepared baking sheet. Looks like I ended
up with 18 meatballs. Not bad. They’re a
pretty good size too! Next we’re gonna
bake these in the 400 degree oven for 25
to 30 minutes. If you like your meatballs
extra crispy add an additional 15 minutes.
Chicken needs to be cooked to an
internal temperature of 165 degrees Fahrenheit
so you can always check for
doneness with a thermometer.
