GROUND CHICKEN MEATBALLS
Ground chicken meatballs are our family’s favorite. Here are some of the reasons.
- They are kids-friendly.
- Freezer friendly.
- Also budget friendly.
- Made in one skillet.
- They go really well with anything.
CHICKEN BREAST OR THIGHS FOR JUICY CHICKEN MEATBALLS?
I strongly recommend to use chicken thighs for juicy meatballs. I know chicken breast is healthier, low in fat and high in protein and will be perfect if you watch your fat intake, but, if you crave juicy meatballs, make sure to use chicken thighs or half of dark meat+half of white meat. Grind chicken together with rice, onion and garlic. If you grind rice with chicken, I guarantee nobody won't notice that you have added rice.
As an option, you can also ask your butcher to grind chicken for you, then later just mix chicken together with other ingredients (chopped onion, garlic , cooked rice and egg).
IS IT BETTER TO PAN-FRY OR BAKE CHICKEN MEATBALLS?
Pan-frying is the fastest method to cook meatballs, you can pan-sear them quickly over high heat, then later add to a simmering creamy sauce to finish cooking.
Bake these meatballs and save a few calories. Preheat your oven to 400 F /200 C, place meatballs into an oven safe skillet and bake for 10 minutes to get juicy meatballs on the inside.
WHAT TO SERVE WITH CHICKEN MEATBALLS?
I used a meat baller to form meatballs, it is really amazing for scooping and making perfectly rounded meatballs.
