Greek Style Meatballs

  • Author: Kim Nicholson



2 pounds of ground chicken

1 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon black pepper

1/2 teaspoon ground cumin

1/2 teaspoon ground oregano

1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes

1/4 cup fresh dill, chopped

1/4 cup fresh mint, chopped

1/4 cup finely diced red onion

6 cloves garlic, finely minced

1/2 teaspoon lemon zest

One egg

1/2 panko breadcrumbs

1 tablespoon olive oil, for frying

For Serving

chopped romaine

feta, for serving



white rice



Add the meatball ingredients to a small mixing bowl and use your hands to mix until well combined. Next, use a cookie dough scoop or tablespoon to scoop out the chicken mixture and use your hands to form into meatballs.
When the meatballs are formed, heat a large skillet over medium heat and then add a tablespoon of oil. Next add the meatballs to the hot skillet and cook for roughly 3-4 minutes per side until browned and the internal temperature reaches 165 degrees Fahrenheit. You may have to do this in batches depending on the size of your skillet.

Serve the meatballs over chopped romaine lettuce with feta, cucumber, tomato, rice, and tzatziki sauce.
