These Easy Chicken Meatballs are a staple in our household. With only five simple ingredients, that add both moisture and maximum flavor to a blank canvas of ground chicken breast, the possibilities are endless to meal preparations. Toss everything together in about five minutes, baked for 15, and they're done. Keep in the fridge to pull our for salads and bowls throughout the week, or freeze so you can pull them out when you need them.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a large rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.
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.
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.
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.
Serve right away or cool completely and store in an airtight containter. Freeze for up to two months.
