Baked Mediterranean Chicken Meatballs

Baked Mediterranean Chicken Meatballs

These baked Mediterranean chicken meatballs are simple, delicious and healthy and something you want on your weekly menu.

I usually make a double batch and freeze half for later use. They are great to put in marinara sauce and serve with Arabic rice and salad. Or why not make some extra marinara sauce with the meat balls and serve them with spaghetti. They are also great as they are with some tzatziki and baked potatoes. That’s why they are so perfect, depending on how you serve them, you have a whole new dish.

Baked Mediterranean Chicken Meatballs

It’s so easy to make these Mediterranean chicken meatballs. You just combine all the ingredients in a bowl. Shape them into meatballs and bake. The oven will take care of everything and you will just lean back and wait…. for 17 minutes. Yes, only 17 minutes.

Ingredients

  • I prefer to use ground chicken but you can use ground turkey as well.
  • Eggs
  • Breadcrumbs
  • Onion.  Grate the onion or use an electrical chopper. We want the meatballs to be chunk-less. And yes, you can use onion powder instead
  • Garlic . You can use garlic powder if you prefer that, but fresh squeezed garlic has so much more taste.
  • Feta
  • Herbs: spearmint (fresh or dried), oregano (dried), thyme (dried)
  • Spices: Salt, black pepper and piri piri (optional)

Marinara sauce covered chicken meatballs.

 If you prefer to cook the Mediterranean chicken meatballs with marinade sauce. Just heat some marinade sauce in a frying pan and then add in the chicken meatballs and roll them around in the sauce. Just enough to get some sauce to stick to the meatballs. I prefer to use my homemade marinade sauce but of course you can also use store-bought.
