Chicken Pesto Meatballs
These Chicken Pesto Meatballs are really quick and easy to make. They taste absolutely delicious too thanks to the addition of basil pesto. Pesto is the ultimate Italian ingredient, bursting with the flavor of fragrant basil and rich with olive oil and Parmesan cheese. I adore it!
Start by cooking the spaghetti. Make the meatballs by combining bread crumbs, pesto, cheese, garlic powder and chicken in a large bowl. Shape the mixture into 1 inch balls ed-hrvatski.com. Cook the meatballs until browned all over. Add marinara sauce and water and boil until the meatballs are cooked. Serve with spaghetti and garnish with additional Parmesan and freshly torn basil.
To make the Chicken Pesto Meatballs, you will need the following ingredients:

Anything to do with chicken and pasta makes my stomach growl! I saw this and just KNEW it'd turn out to be great, really glad I found this recipe, thanks for sharing!
Ended up sharing this recipe to all my friends who love cooking, it was too good to keep to myself.
Was a bit under-cooked, I recommend checking if your stove gets hot enough to cook the meatballs through,I had to cook mine for 25 minutes instead of 15, turned out nicely.
Didn't expect it to turn out so good but the instructions really did me a lot of favors, the meal looked exactly as pictured.
One of my all time favorite Chicken pesto recipes since the creamy chicken one you guys posted! This is the second best thing on here.
Amazing meal for two, will be using this every spaghetti Monday for sure!
I made this tonight for dinner and all of my family enjoyed the meal,delightful as most of the dinners on here.
I'm in love with this lunch/dinner, I added a bit more basil though!
This plate has everything you want in a meal and will keep you full all day!
Best meatball recipe I've ever cooked up, everything about these meatballs is delicious, will be cooking again.
Made this yesterday and it turned out quite nice, a little bit on the salty side but maybe that's just me.
The meatballs just instantly fell apart for me..I followed the recipe fully but it didn't end up looking that great. Tasted amazing though despite them being crumbled up.
I love how flavourful this dish is, I made this for dinner tonight for my hubby and me and we both enjoyed it very much :)
Well done! Thanks for sharing recipe!
