I like chicken. I like to EAT em. Now I know I mentioned that it’s perfectly fine to eat beef (just get the low fat kind, remember?), but I’ve been eating so much chicken lately I might actually prefer these. And they’re white, and white=healthy. Or at least, it looks like it. But probably the best part is that usually, chicken breast is quite a bit cheaper than low fat beef. Even the good kind. I use the hand-trimmed individually-packaged frozen chicken breasts from Costco which are about $2.70 per pound.
Ground chicken works best for this. Isernio’s has a pretty good one, although it costs a lot more than getting a meat grinder and grinding the Costco stuff yourself.
Now there’s a lot of recipes you can make, adding whatever cheeses or spices you want, but I’ll go with the basic one.
1 lb ground chicken
1 large egg
2 Tablespoons bread crumbs
- Preheat oven to 350.
- Put the chicken in a bowl and add the rest of the ingredients on top.
- Mix into a nice, gooey, uh… goop.
- Form into meatballs. Whatever size you want! I make them about the same size as a superball.
- Put the uncooked meatballs on a pan and bake for 20-25 minutes.
I generally put Johnny’s Parmesan garlic seasoning, and some grated Parmesan (Yep, I like the cheese), but it should work with just about anything.
