Chicken meatballs are a must for dinner. If your kids love chicken nuggets, they’ll love these meatballs, too. We make sure to design recipes that adults will love too. They are full of flavor! We’ve added healthy fats to ensure your meatballs stay tasty and moist.

Pro tip: Olive oil is often added to ground poultry for added moisture and flavor. Because olive oil is a healthy fat, this makes ground poultry healthier than ground beef without sacrificing perfectly juicy meatballs.

Can I use ground turkey instead?

Yes, you can substitute ground turkey for chicken in this recipe to make turkey meatballs. The cooking time will remain the same. Ground turkey is available in a variety of fats. We recommend lean turkey.
