Chicken meatballs are an easy dinner that I absolutely love to have in my weekly dinner menu rotation! I love them so much I wanted to put together this roundup over over 20 inspired, creative, and fun chicken meatballs!
From cheesy, to saucy, and even spicy, you’ll find something you can make for dinner and hopefully find some new family favorites!
Tips for making chicken meatballs
A few tips I find super helpful when working with ground chicken and making chicken meatballs!
- Ground chicken needs lots of seasoning, more than ground beef would require. Make sure you’re adding enough salt, pepper and additional seasonings to prevent the meatballs from coming out bland.
- Ground chicken can be sticky as it’s much wetter than ground beef. Keep a bowl of warm water nearby and keep your hands wet as you’re rolling the meatballs. It will prevent the mixture from sticking to your hands!
- You can save a reheat any leftovers. When I reheat my leftover meatballs I always cut them in half first. This will help lessen their reheating time and help prevent them from drying out.
Ok, onto the meatballs!
