BBQ Chicken Meatballs
They’re just REALLY REALLY good!
Serve them over spaghetti squash, brown rice, or with a side of quinoa for dinner tonight – just make em’ asap!
Really good with a side of sweet potato fries too!
Double up this recipe for your weekend football-watching parties! Follow the recipe then gently add your cooked meatballs and BBQ sauce into your slow cooker or Crockpot on LOW. I set out bamboo sticks for skewering the meatballs next to the crockpot and our teenagers completely devoured them last weekend.
These meatballs are excellent for meal prep too. They stay good in a sealed container in the fridge for 3 days.
➡️ Here’s our Homemade BBQ Sauce Recipe.
- 1-1/2 lbs ground chicken (dark meat if possible, makes them more tender)
- ½ cup almond flour
- ¼ cup Parmesan cheese, grated
- 2 fresh garlic cloves, pressed
- ¼ medium onion, very finely chopped
- 1 large egg
- 1 bunch fresh parsley, finely chopped
- sea salt and ground black pepper, to taste
- 2 Tbsps olive or avocado oil
- 2 cups homemade barbecue sauce
In a large mixing bowl add the ground chicken, almond flour, Parmesan cheese, garlic, onion, egg, chopped parsley, sea salt, and pepper. Stir really well to combine everything.
Using your clean hands, shape spoonfuls of meat mixture into 1 – inch meatballs as shown.
Heat your oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat.
Cook your meatballs while stirring until golden brown and cooked through about 8-10 minutes.
Once your meatballs are cooked, add in the barbecue sauce.
Simmer for a few minutes more, stirring frequently to coat all the meatballs with the BBQ sauce.
Garnish with chopped parsley and serve immediately!
