It is a quick and easy recipe! It will be on your table in less than 30 minutes.
- Mix all the ingredients for meatballs except egg and ground chicken.
- Add the mixture to the ground chicken, followed by egg. Mix just until combined!
- Roll the mixture into meatballs and sear them until golden brown and cooked through.
- Transfer to a plate and cover with foil to keep them warm.
How To Sear Chicken
Use an ice cream scooper or meat baller to scoop the mixture and roll into meatballs with your wet hands. This guarantees even cooking as the meatballs will have the same size and shape. Sear chicken meatballs over medium high heat in a non-stick pan to prevent sticking. It takes about 10 minutes for them to get cooked. You can use the meat thermometer to check their internal temp. It should be 165 F/ 75 C.
How To Make Chicken Piccata Sauce
It is one of the easiest but yet so flavorful sauces. To make it, simply melt butter in the same pan. Add the garlic cloves and sauté until fragrant 50-60 seconds. Then, stir in the chicken broth, corn starch mixture and cook until the sauce thickens. Finally, add capers. Return the cooked meatballs and allow the sauce simmer further for 1-2 minutes. Adjust salt and pepper.
