How to Make Chicken Meatballs – 6 Steps


Baking pan or jelly roll pan
Aluminum foil
Food processor
Knife and chopping board


Step 1:

Preheat the oven in a 350°F temperature. Proceed into lining the baking pan with aluminum foil. (You can use also jelly roll pan but line it with foil, too.)

Step 2:

Pour olive oil into a heated skillet (over a medium low flame) and sauté the onions until you see the transparent consistency. Set aside the onions after sautéing.

Step 3:

Cut the chicken thighs into small pieces and don’t forget to trim off the fat. Place the bits into the processor and hit the button.

Step 4:

As the chicken begin to be coarsely minced, add the sautéed onions, milk, bread bits, egg white, parsley and other seasonings. Grind the ingredients until finely processed.

Step 5:

Next, form the mixture into 1-inch balls and don’t forget to dampen your hands with water as you work on them.

Step 6:

Get the baking pan and align all the meatballs. Roast the meatballs at 400°F for 25-30 minutes. (If you choose to cook the balls with sauce of your choice, put the balls with the sauce in a saucepan.  Bring into simmer, cover for about 30-35 minutes and serve hot.)
