Baked Chicken Meatballs

Spread the love

I am so excited to share this chicken meatball recipe with you because it is so simple to whip up and have on the table in 30 minutes! They can be added to your favorite pasta, over zoodles, or just on their own. What I love even more about this recipe is the clean-up is easy peasy making it the perfect weeknight meal.

This recipe is also great because it’s a healthier alternative using ground chicken, making it lower in cholesterol. You could also substitute the chicken with ground turkey.

  • 1 lb ground chicken

  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper

  • Roll meatballs into 1 inch balls. This should make somewhere between 28-32 meatballs.

  • Place meatballs in the oven and set the timer for 25 minutes at 400° F. (not a necessary step, but if you would like to brown both sides of the meatballs flip them after the first 15 minutes)
  • Before enjoying, make sure the internal temperature has reached 165° F.


I like to serve these over zucchini noodles or add them to any soup. When making these for soup, you can add the baked version of these meatballs or you can brown them in a skillet then add them to the boiling soup when you add noodles and let them continue to fully cook through.
