Who doesn’t love meatballs??
Not only are meatballs ridiculously easy to make, but they can be made in such a variety of ways – you’ll probably never run out of ideas and it’s like a new meal every time.
Chicken meatballs is something a bit more interesting, although not original by any means. Our chicken zucchini meatballs adds a funky vegetable twist to make this easy meatball recipe even yummier.
What I love about our chicken meatballs is that they are absolutely bomb.com in the flavor department, but also completely healthy.
Whole 30, Paleo, Low-Carb, Gluten-Free – It ticks all the boxes.
We also completely love to serve these chicken meatballs with our equally compliant Easy Blender Romesco Sauce. Combine these two quick and easy recipes and you’ll have a lip-smacking dinner on the table in no time at all.
How to make easy Chicken Zucchini Meatballs:
- Toss all the ingredients into a blender (Love me some blender recipes!): Chicken breast (or ground chicken if you can find it), zucchini, half an onion, an egg, garlic cloves, and a couple of spices.
- Blend it together until properly combined.
- Get dirty! Form the raw chicken concoction into meatball sized bites – this recipe should give you about 24 meatballs depending on how big you decide to roll them.
- Heat up a pan and give the meatballs a bit of a sear for a minute or two on each side.
- Toss them into a lined baking tray and pop them into a preheated oven for 10 minutes.
- Voilà! Meatballs!
You’ll find that when rolling the meatballs, they are pretty sticky and the mixture is soft, but if you’re careful when adding them to the pan they should stay together perfectly.
By not adding any sort of flour to them, we ensure they are complete wholesome and healthy. As usual, when possible we try to steer completely clear of any processed ingredients.
