Chicken Meatballs


These Italian-style Chicken Meatballs are tender and juicy and coated with a tangy tomato-balsamic glaze. I flavor these speedy chicken meatballs with garlic and Italian-seasoned bread crumbs. But the secret star ingredients here are the pecorino Romano cheese and fresh Italian flat-leaf parsley, which add to the flavor and texture as well. Healthy and delicious, this easy chicken dish is always a family favorite. The recipe yields 12 meal-sized or 24 appetizer-sized meatballs.

For best results, skip the extra-lean all breast ground chicken and look for a mixture of white and dark meat. Be sure to bake the meatballs until the internal temperature reaches 160 °F for food safety. Serve the meatballs on top of spaghetti, mashed potatoes, or avocado mojo bowls for a satisfying meal. Enjoy!

To make the Chicken Meatballs, you will need the following ingredients:

Steps to make Chicken Meatballs


Preheat oven

Preheat the oven to 325 °F.


Mix wet ingredients


In a large mixing bowl, combine 1 large egg, 3 tablespoons freshly chopped parsley, 1 tablespoon tomato paste, 1 minced garlic clove, ¼ cup milk, ½ teaspoon salt, and ½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper. Using a wire whisk, whisk well until the tomato paste is completely dissolved.


Add ground chicken, cheese, and bread crumbs


Add 1 pound ground chicken, ½ cup grated pecorino Romano cheese, and ¼ cup plus 2 tablespoons Italian-seasoned bread crumbs. Using your hand, mix the ingredients together; the meat mixture will be somewhat wet.


Roll meatballs


Roll 12 medium-sized balls and place them into an ungreased baking dish.


Make tomato-balsamic glaze


In a small bowl, add 1 ½ tablespoons tomato paste, 1 ½ tablespoons extra virgin olive oil, 2 teaspoons balsamic vinegar, and ¾ teaspoon sugar and whisk to combine well.


Brush meatballs with tomato-balsamic glaze


Brush the tomato-balsamic glaze evenly over the meatballs.




Bake the meatballs for 30 minutes or until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the center of a meatball registers 160 °F.



Serve with a side of choice.
