Homemade Chicken Meatballs

Hi friends!

After my lil spin with homemade Chicken Nuggets, I decided to try this recipe!

The recipe is based on this YouTube video.

Difficulty: Easy
Prep time: 20 minutes, because I needed to chop and mince my chicken meat, less if you already have minced meat at hand :-)
Cooking time: about 20 minutes

Recipe for Chicken Meatballs (12pcs)
  • Minced chicken (I minced one chicken thigh)
  • Olive oil
  • Chilli flakes (lots if you like it spicy like me!)
  • Black Pepper
  • Salt
  • Oregano
  • 1 clove chopped garlic
  • Breadcrumbs (I used Panko again)
  • Cheese (I used shredded Cheddar cheese)
  • Chopped carrots
  • 1 egg, whisked
Mix everything in a bowl! I added the egg last. Shape and put into air fryer at 200c for about 18 minutes, or preheated oven at 200c for about 18-20 minutes.

Raw meatballs on my first try before placing in the air-fryer.

Golden product! Paired it with some pasta and cream sauce! 

Love these meatballs! 

Here's my second batch from the oven. Tripled the recipe, but only used 2 eggs instead of 3 because it felt wasteful. Turned out fine. The oven baked meatballs are juicier and less dry than the air fryer ones! But the air fryer one is definitely more convenient.

These Chicken Meatballs are Family approved~

I might add some mushrooms and onions next time.
