So when I say anytime, I really do mean anytime.

That’s what I love about these baked chicken meatballs. They are SO EASY to make and they can sort of turn into anything.

Here Are Some Of Their Best Features…

  • They are BAKED.
  • They are CHICKEN. (Turkey’s good, too.)
  • They use one bowl.
  • There are no cutting boards involved.
  • There is no splattery sautéing.
  • They are meal-prep friendly.
  • Also freezer friendly.
  • THEY GO WITH ANYTHING, anytime.

I’m not a meatball lover, but I LOVE THESE MEATBALLS.

These baked chicken meatball bites can go with spaghetti and meatballs, baked rigatoni, or any pasta for that matter. They can be served with mashed cauliflower and green beans (my current favorite), or saved for quick and healthy lunch meal prep with roasted veggies. Half of the batch can be tossed with buffalo sauce and half can be frozen for next week’s Swedish meatball dinner.

I don’t memorize many recipes – I have the magic green sauce, soft chocolate chip cookies, and wild rice soup burned into my brain, but that’s about it. THAT BEING SAID, this baked chicken meatball recipe is absolutely a memorize-the-general-concept-and-make-it-anytime type of situation.

See? Anytime. I told you I was serious about that part.

Let’s Get Cooking!

K, the recipe is such a breeze. Are you ready?

First, your ingredients. Just pile ’em in a bowl. All you really need to remember is panko, parm, egg, and chicken. The spices are pretty flexible.

Now OBVIOUSLY WASH YOUR HANDS and take off your rings and all that. And then dive in.

Mix, roll, roll, roll. And bake.

Put your feet up, relax for a minute, smell the deliciousness coming from the oven.

And then you’re done!

One of my favorite things about these is that even with being baked, they get a really nice browned exterior. You can always throw them in a saute pan if you feel like they need a little extra browning, but I will legit eat these straight off the baking sheet. Browned to perfection, if you ask me.

Okay, so what are you going to make with these? Because these are the little baked chicken meatballs that could!

They can be anything they set their minds to. An-y-thing!

Baked Chicken Meatballs: FAQs

Can I use ground turkey for these meatballs?

Yes! I really love making this with ground chicken OR ground turkey. If I use ground turkey, I like the dark meat ground turkey that they sell at Whole Foods.

Why do you use garlic and onion powder? Can’t I use fresh garlic and onions?

I prefer chunk-less meatballs when it comes to onion and garlic which is why I prefer to use powder. But if you like to have the chunks, I think you could use finely minced fresh garlic and onion with good results!

What’s that delicious sauce that’s pictured with the meatballs? I want it!

The sauce pictured here is a store-bought vodka sauce from DeLallo! It’s delicious. This romesco sauce would also be AMAZING!

    Looks yum! Question – is the taste of parmesan strong? My husband’s not a huge parmesan fan (criminal, I know). If it is – would you have any recommended substitutes or quantity adjustments?

      I wouldn’t say it’s too strong! If you find it is, you could always try subbing in another hard cheese.

          I made these for my 8 month old. So I added 1/4c of milk instead of olive oil (I wasn’t sure if olive oil would make them soft enough for her but may try it next time) and used mozzarella cheese instead of Parmesan just to help add softness for her and didn’t use any salt. She loved them. We ate them too they were definitely a softer/moister meatball but definitely still held together and a really yummy family meal which is a win.

          These were so easy to make, & so tender & flavorful! The only tweak I made was that I used chili infused olive oil for 1 of the tbsp, to give it a little kick. I baked them a little shorter & then let them cook in marinara sauce til done. We ate them just as they were & also made meatball sammiches. Super yummy!!

    These look great! If sensitive to gluten, do you think you could sub oats for the panko, or would you just leave the panko out altogether and not worry about a substitution?

      Hi Melanie! Some pulsed oats might do the trick, otherwise almond meal/almond flour should work as well!

      Hi! It may not have the exact same taste/texture as regular panko, but I found Ian’s gluten free panko at several grocery stores. I have tried it in a meatloaf recipe (using ground beef) and thought it was really good with no funny taste. So maybe that would work here if you can find it. I’m definitely going to try it as soon as possible. This sounds so good!

        Gluten free breadcrumbs worked just fine! Have made these 3 times already, everyone loved them including 2 picky kids. Straightforward, easy recipe. Added dried parsley flakes but otherwise as written, aside from gf panko.

        These were great! I made them (mostly) as written with ground chicken except I added a little less than 1/2 a tap of Italian herb blend and I used 1/4 cup of grated Parmesan rather than 1/2. I used unseasoned Pablo. They came out delicious.

    OMG – how did you know I was looking for a chicken meatball recipe to make today?!?! Perfect timing as I was looking for inspiration to make healthy chicken meatballs for my 11.5mo old daughter! I loved how EASY your recipe was and it was super tastey! Since I was making these for my baby, I decided to omit the salt/pepper and added in a small organic zucchini (grated and moisture removed). Made 37 mini meatballs in total and froze them after cooling for easy meal prep. Thank you for sharing this recipe, love your blog and recipes! Xo

      After they are baked, to freeze them, can I just put them all together touching? In other words, i don’t need to freeze them in a single layer

    I think we should eat vegetable salad with this… I like this and Would like to make it soon… How can I make it without the oven?

      You could definitely sauté them in a pan on the stove – just be sure to check that they’re cooked all the way through!

      Some almond meal or almond flour should do the trick!

    I made these last night for dinner and we devoured them. So easy, so yummy, and so perfect for lunch the next day. I’m going to have to make a double batch next time around. I think these would even be great for meal prep with a little salad and sauce for dipping!

    I would like to make these as a freezer meal. Do you recommend freezing them raw, then baking or putting in crockpot? Or freezing them already cooked?

      We would recommend cooking them first and then freezing!

    These look amazing will be making soon. I have 1 question are you using ground chicken breast or a mix? Thanks for all your lovely recipes.

        These look wonderful! Would they also work with rotisserie chicken?

          Hi Suzanne! We’ve only made the meatballs using raw ground chicken or ground turkey. We don’t think it would work with chicken that has already been cooked.

    Made these tonight and they burned on the bottom before they were done in the middle. I greased the cookie sheet. Any idea why mine aren’t as pretty as yours? 🙂

      Weird! I’ve done these before with parchment paper and no spray – you could give that a try too!
