I have been on a real ground chicken kick lately. The flavor and texture are much better than ground turkey, in my opinion, and it’s a nice change from ground beef.

These Greek Chicken Meatballs are great for an easy dinner. Since they’re baked, you can cook them all at once instead of in batches in a skillet. That cuts your cooking time in half!

The best thing about these is that kids absolutely looooovvveee them. First of all, I’ve yet to meet a kid that didn’t like meatballs period. But these are so delicious and flavorful, your kids will gobble them up and then ask for more.

What You’ll Need for Greek Chicken Meatballs

  • 1 Pound of Ground Chicken
  • 1 Lemon
  • Onion Powder
  • Dried Dill
  • Dried Oregano
  • Garlic Powder
  • Salt
  • Box Grater or Microplane
  • Large Bowl
  • Large Baking Sheet

Tips

  • Make sure your dried herbs are fresh. Dried herbs can lose flavor quickly so if your dried herbs are old you might not get as flavorful an end product.
  • You can easily form meatballs with a 1 tablespoon cookie scoop. Using a cookie scoop ensures your meatballs are all the same size which helps them cook evenly. Once you scoop them out, simply roll them quickly in your hands to smooth out the rough edges.
  • You can easily double this recipe and use the leftovers for easy lunches for the rest of the week.
  • These meatballs can be stored in a covered container in the refrigerator for 4 days or in a freezer bag in the freezer for 6 months.
  • These meatballs are gluten- and dairy-free and Whole30, Paleo, and keto-friendly.
