Chicken Pesto Meatballs

  • Total Time: 25 minutes
  • Yield: 24 meatballs 1x



1lb ground chicken
3/4 cup basil pesto (I used Kirkland brand)
1/2 panko bread crumbs (plain)


Preheat oven to 400°F. 

Combine the ground chicken, pesto, and panko bread crumbs in a mixing bowl. 

Mix until well combined. I often find that using my hands works best. 

Once ingredients are thoroughly combined, scoop using a cookie scoop onto a silpat lined baking sheet. 

Bake the meatballs for 20-22 minutes, until cooked through and internal temperature is 165°F. Enjoy!
