Elevate your mealtime with these Cheesy Chicken Meatballs, a succulent and flavorful twist on traditional meatballs. Made with ground chicken and a blend of cheeses, these meatballs are moist, tender, and packed with flavor, making them a perfect addition to any dish.

The Story Behind the Dish

Meatballs have been a staple in various cuisines across the globe, traditionally made with beef or pork. This recipe takes a healthier approach by using ground chicken, which is lighter but equally satisfying. The addition of mozzarella and Parmesan cheese inside each meatball ensures a gooey, cheesy center that enhances the flavor and texture.

Why You Should Make These Meatballs

  • Healthier Option: Ground chicken is lower in fat than beef or pork, making these meatballs a healthier choice.
  • Kid-Friendly: Their cheesy goodness makes them a hit among children and adults alike.
  • Versatile: Serve them over pasta, in a sub, or as an appetizer with your favorite dipping sauces.

How to Serve

These Cheesy Chicken Meatballs can be served in a variety of ways. Toss them with spaghetti and marinara sauce for a classic Italian dinner, place them in a hoagie roll topped with more mozzarella for a delicious meatball sub, or serve them with toothpicks and a side of ranch or blue cheese dressing for a crowd-pleasing appetizer.

How to Store

Store leftover meatballs in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. They can also be frozen for up to 3 months. Reheat in the microwave, oven, or on the stovetop until thoroughly warmed.

Tips for Perfect Meatballs

  • Moisture is Key: The milk-soaked bread, along with sour cream, ensures the meatballs stay moist and tender.
  • Don’t Overmix: Mix just until the ingredients are combined to avoid tough meatballs.
  • Even Size: Use a cookie scoop or spoon to form even-sized meatballs, ensuring they cook uniformly.
