These baked carnivore chicken meatballs are moist, delicious, and easy to make. They can be enjoyed on their own as a main meal or a tasty snack. They also go well with soup and stew dishes. Moreover, their convenience and health benefits make them a perfect addition to picnics or lunchboxes.

Ingredients:

  • 2 pound (about 900g) ground chicken mince
  • 1 teaspoon salt (adjust to taste)
  • 1⅔ cup Parmesan cheese powder
  • 2 large eggs
  • Optional: 1 tsp garlic power, 1 tsp onion powder, and ½ tsp pepper.

Instructions:

  1. Preheat the Oven: Preheat your oven to 340°F (170°C).
  2. Prepare the Mixture: In a large mixing bowl, combine the ground chicken, salt, ⅔ cup Parmesan cheese powder, and eggs. If you can handle plant-based seasonings, add the pepper, garlic and onion powder too. Gently mix the ingredients together till well combined but don’t overwork the meat.
  3. Shape the Meatballs: Wet your hands with water to prevent sticking, then shape the mixture into meatballs. You can make them any size you prefer, but aim for consistency to ensure even cooking. If making for children, use about one tablespoon of mixture per meatball.
  4. Coat with Parmesan Cheese: Place the remaining Parmesan cheese powder in a shallow dish. Roll the meatballs in the cheese powder and coat them thoroughly.
  5. Bake in the Oven: Transfer the meatballs to a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake for about 15-20 minutes or until the meatballs are cooked through and have reached an internal temperature of 165°F (74°C).
  6. Serve: Once the meatballs are cooked, remove them from the oven and serve them hot.

Note on Storage

These meatballs will stay fresh in the fridge for 3-5 days. You can also freeze the meatballs for up to 3 months. To freeze, please allow the cooked meatballs to cool completely before transferring them to a sealed freezer bag or airtight container.

You can also freeze uncooked meatballs for 3-4 months. First, place the meatballs on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, making sure they are not touching then freeze the meatballs on the baking sheet until solid (about 1-2 hours). Once frozen, transfer the meatballs to a sealed freezer bag or airtight container.

Note on Substitute

Chicken mince is very nutritious. In addition to being a source of high quality protein, it is a good source of many essential vitamins, including thiamine (B1), riboflavin (B2), niacin (B3), pantothenic acid (B5), B6, B12, and choline. It is also a good source of many essential minerals, including copper, iron, magnesium, phosphorous, zinc, selenium and potassium.

However, factory chicken has a bad reputation due to their generally poor diet and living conditions. If you don’t like to eat a lot of chicken meat, in this recipe, you can partially substitute chicken mince with pork and beef mince. Keep in mind that this will alter the flavor and texture of the meatballs, but it can also add richness and a different depth of flavor.
