Cheesy Chicken Meatballs

Cheesy Chicken Meatballs

Raquel Teixeira 86

"I have abandoned fatty ground beef in favor of healthier options such as ground chicken and turkey. I can ensure with the perfect additions, these will not be bland nor dry - you will not be missing the beef here."

  2. Combine the chicken, eggs, cream cheese, Parmesan cheese, bread crumbs, red pepper flakes, Italian seasoning, garlic powder, vegetable oil, salt, and pepper in a large bowl; mix well. Form mixture into 20 meatballs; place on prepared pan.
  3. Bake in center of preheated oven until juices run clear, 17 to 18 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).

I think these are great. The recipe submitter suggests using only 1 egg; AR won't let you modify a published recipe, so she can't "fix" it, and so it is up to the reader to read the top reviews ...

I was starving when I made this, so I made one chicken patty along with the meatballs and ate the patty first with a piece of colby jack cheese melted on top and saved the meatballs for dinner. ...

Great meatballs! The cream cheese kept them from drying out and I did have to use a lot more breadcrumbs though to hold them together better. Instead of Italian seasoning I used fresh rosemary...

I made these meatballs as directed (except for using regular cream cheese) and thought the Italian seasoning was a little strong and that the red pepper flakes were a little much. Next time I'd...

I used turkey instead of Chicken. Very good!

This was fantastic! I really had my doubts and everything was yummy. I followed the recipie almost to the letter. I didn't have the Garlic cream cheese on hand so I used regular cream cheese. ...
