Chicken Meatballs


Chicken Meatballs Recipe

Adapted from Simply Reem
Serves 2-3 | Prep Time: 20 Minutes | Cook Time: 10 Minutes


1 lb boneless, skineless chicken thighs
1/4 small onion
3-4 small garlic
1 egg white
1 1/2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 teaspoon salt
3 dashes black pepper
10 cilantro leaves, roughly chopped
Mashed green peas
Finely diced carrots
Cayenne pepper
Oil, for shallow frying


Blend the chicken, onion, garlic, egg white, lemon juice, salt and pepper in a food processor until well combined. Transfer the ground chicken out in a bowl and stir in the chopped cilantro leaves. For the toddler version, fold in the mashed peas and diced carrots. For the regular version, just add a pinch or two of cayenne pepper. Stir to combine well.

Wet both hands with some water and shape the ground chicken into meatballs and lay on a plate lined with parchment paper. Heat up a pan or skillet with some oil, shallow fry the meatballs until lightly browned or cooked through. Serve immediately.

    Interesting dish. Bet they would also be great simmered in a creamy curry sauce ;-)

    diced fresh mushrooms – as they cook in the meatball they release moisture – important for chicken meatballs. I also use chopped fresh spinach -

  5. I am thinking about making this tonight for dinner! I think I will try the Spinach and Mushroom with it too!

    Can the meatballs be steamed instead of pan fried?
