Very juicy and taste so good..its not very crunchy like the description says though it actually fell apart but i liked it anyway.

Huge crowd pleaser to be honest didnt imagine it tasting this good thx for sharing.

I tossed in a few sundried tomatos that were soaked in oil and they go well with the flavor of the chicken meatballs so id recommend getting creative with this recipe.

Christiana Beights

Fried mine instead of baking it..little less healthy but worth.
