All purpose chicken meatballs can be used for many different meals. A great basic recipe to have on hand for easy dinners.
It is nice to have go-to recipes on hand so when you are in a pinch and don't know what to make you pull them out. That is why I love these baked, all purpose chicken meatballs. They can be served with a side of marinara or BBQ sauce or served with pasta or on a sandwich. These are even delicious wrapped up in lettuce.
My kids can be picky eaters but these meatballs are one of their favorite things. They like to pick them up and dunk them in ketchup. 🙂 This recipe is great for week night meals because they can be made in 30 minutes.
