The Best Chicken Meatballs

Who doesn’t love a good meatball!? ESPECIALLY when they are HOMEMADE & HEALTHIFIED!! These babies are seriously SO flavorful you’re going to start making them all the time (meal prep/freezer friendly too;-) because not only are they so delicious and healthy, they are SO easy to make (WIN WIN & WIN!!). Optional Side Tip: Aidan’s cute grandma Joan taught him a little “meatball hack”. If you place a crushed ice cube in the middle of the meatball it locks in added moisture so that your meatballs turn out EVEN MORE juicy! We did a trial run and made half with a crushed ice cube in the middle and half without… we were mind boggled, it really does work! However, if you are in a rush or too lazy the meatballs still come out great! Hope you all love this recipe as much as I do!
