Oven baked meatballs are easy appetizers when served with a dipping sauce. They’re also a delicious addition to a variety of meals. When it comes to time-saving healthy recipes, these scrumptious chicken meatballs are an all-time favorite!


  • 1 pound ground chicken breast
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 cup Panko breadcrumbs
  • 1 tablespoon fresh Italian parsley, chopped (no stems)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 garlic clove, pressed or minced
  • 1 teaspoon dried onion flakes
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly-ground black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • Optional: Dipping sauce


  1. Adjust oven rack to the center position. Heat oven to 400 F.
  2. Add all ingredients to a mixing bowl. With a spoon or spatula, mix everything together.
  3. Use a small stainless-steel scoop (or clean hands) to form 35 chicken meatballs. Place the pieces on a lined baking tray, leaving a bit of space between each.
  4. Bake for approximately 25 minutes, or until oven baked meatballs are golden and done.


EXPERT TIPS: To increase the flavor profile even more, instead of using ground chicken breast only – use 3/4 pound ground chicken and 1/4 pound chicken sausage (no casings). This ratio works best when doubling or tripling the recipe so there isn’t leftover chicken. This recipe also works well with ground turkey!
