  • 1 lb chicken breast or tenderloin
  • 1/2 medium onion, grated
  • 3 large garlic cloves, grated
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/4 cup panko breadcrumbs
  • 1 tsp kosher salt


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a large rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.

  2. Cut the chicken into 1-inch pieces. Palce in the food processor. Pulse until the chicken is starting to grind. Leave the mixer on and let the meat grind. It should take about 1-2 minutes.

  3. Once the meat is ground, remove the blade. Add in the grated onion, grated garlic, egg, panko, and salt. Use hands to gently combine everything together. Do not overmix.

  4. Use a small cookie or ice cream scoop to form the chicken mixture into 25 meatballs. Place on the parchment-lined baking sheet. Damp hands with cold water. Roll into uniform meatballs. Place in the oven and bake until golden brown and cooked through, about 12-15 minutes.

  5. Serve right away or cool completely and store in an airtight containter. Freeze for up to two months.
