I have a couple of friends that wont eat red meat. I started to look for recipes that use chicken or turkey that they could enjoy -- and that the rest of us "wouldn't mind" they were so well liked I have given the recipe to all of our friends! Recipe is from **Servings are based on 4 meatballs per person.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 lb lean ground chicken
  • 12 cup Italian seasoned breadcrumbs
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon sodium-free seasoning (Lawry's 17 blend is good)
  • 12 cup barbecue sauce (I use "Cookies" BBQ sauce)


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Combine chicken, bread crumbs, egg and seasoning blend.
  2. Roll mixture into 24 meatballs. Brown meatballs in a skillet, sprayed with non-stick cooking spray, over medium heat.
  3. Transfer meatballs to a greased 9-by-9-inch baking dish. Cover with barbecue sauce. Bake uncovered 5-10 minutes or until internal temperature reaches 170 degrees.
  4. Serve with additional barbecue sauce if desired.

These are super flavorful! I made exactly as directed and served with oven fries on the side. This is a quick & easy recipe that I'll make again and again. Thanks for sharing!

I did not have any expectation of loving this recipe, and boy, was I wrong! It is so tasty. I made it exactly as directed, but used Simple Organics All-Purpose Seasoning. For the barbecue sauce, I used Sweet Baby Ray's. This was fast and easy. When they were done and I was letting them rest, I couldn't stop sampling them. I will definitely be making these again in the future. Thanks for posting this! Made for 1-2-3 Hit Wonders Tag Game.

Yummy! I had to substitute extra lean ground turkey for the chicken, but I'm sure it worked out the same. I would make these again for sure! Served over rice with a salad on the side. Thanks! Made for Potluck Tag.
