Chicken Meatballs

Chicken meatballs….Everytime I make meatballs I can’t help but think of the Schweddy Balls sketch from Saturday Night Live.

I giggle every time I see it.

It’s my simple mind. If you have seen it and don’t think it’s funny, you need to reevaluate life goals.

Back to the schweddy balls…I mean meatballs.

I wanted to make a meatball with no egg and no breadcrumbs and no red met.

These are packed with great flavor and hold together just fine without the binders and fillers.
