Here’s something just a little different. Rosemary goes really well with chicken so I made rosemary flavored meatballs. They came out juicy and flavorful. I think most people will like them.
Ingredients for about 5 servings
1 lb ground chicken
2 XL eggs – slightly beaten
1 cup whole wheat panko bread crumbs
1/4 cup sweet onion – chopped fine
2 garlic cloves – ground to paste
1 carrot – grated fine
1/2 cup chicken stock
2 Tablespoons fresh rosemary – chopped fine
2 Tablespoons fresh parsley – chopped fine
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon dried basil
1/4 teaspoon granulated garlic
pinch crushed red pepper
1 Tablespoon sea salt
1 teaspoon black pepper
Non stick cooking spray – (or oil if you prefer)
Set oven to 350 degrees F
Spray or oil your baking sheet(s)
In a large mixing bowl add everything except the ground chicken. Mix well. Now add chicken and mix well again.
Pinch off a small marble size piece and zap in the microwave in paper towels for about 10 seconds or pop in the oven for about 5 minutes in some oiled aluminum foil and test for seasoning and adjust if you care too. (The taste will be close from the microwave but not exact).
Scoop out balls with a small scooper on to your sprayed baking sheet(s). I made 28 balls.
Cook till done on middle rack. In my oven the meatballs were ready in 15 minutes.
