Low Carb Chicken Meatballs

Spread the love

This recipe is inspired by one of our favorite chefs, J. Kenji Lopez-Alt, but differs by our way making Chicken Meatballs instead of beef meatballs. You should know, however, I am a huge fan of all meatballs, no matter the shape, no matter the meat, no matter the seasonings, so I was extremely excited to make these. My favorite part is mixing all the ingredients with your hands and forming the balls.

Oven Baked Chicken Meatballs

My preferred method of cooking any meatball is definitely the oven! A slow oven cooked meatball beats cooking them in a skillet, where there is risk of over cooking or undercooking the meat, any day. Oven baked chicken meatballs are guaranteed to be juicer than any other method of cooking them! There is almost nothing worse then a dried out meatball hidden under a sauce. These are so good you don't even need a sauce for them.

The Best Ground Chicken Meatballs

What makes these ground chicken meatballs the best is the ingredients I used. A little bit of everything goes a long way in terms of flavor! The soy sauce is a secret weapon that should always be turned to when cooking meats. And, with the grated parmesan and egg to help bind the meat, bread crumbs aren't even necessary! When it comes to spices you can any way you want to be honest, but what we've provided you below is a perfectly well balanced equation for juicy low carb chicken meatballs.

Low Carb Chicken Meatballs

You can without a doubt replace the ground chicken in this recipe with beef, lamb or pork. It's entirely up to you! Maybe a mix of pork and beef for a fattier, juicer meatball?!
