Ready in only 30 minutes, these easy baked chicken meatballs perfect as an appetizer, stand-alone meal, or paired with your favorite sauce. They’re tasty, simple, and freezer-friendly too. 


  • 1 pound ground chicken
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup panko breadcrumbs
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil 
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper 
  • ¼ teaspoon red pepper flakes (optional) 


  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F. Line a baking sheet with foil or parchment paper and lightly coat with cooking spray. 
  2. In a large bowl, mix together all of the ingredients. 
  3. Using your hands or a cookie scoop, form meatballs that are about 1” wide. Place the meatballs on the baking sheet so that they are not touching. 
  4. Bake for 20 – 25 minutes in the preheated oven. The meatballs should be cooked through (the cooked internal temperature of chicken is 165°F) and browned on the outside. 
  5. Serve warm as a stand-alone meal or pair the meatballs with your favorite sauce. Store leftovers in the fridge for 3 – 4 days or freeze them for 3 – 4 months.
