Baked cheese stuffed chicken meatballs: flavorful, easy to make, versatile and can be made in advance and frozen for quick weeknight meals.

  • 300 grams (10.6 ounces) lean ground chicken breast
  • 1 zucchini grated
  • 1 carrot peeled and grated
  • 1 tablespoon fresh parsley finely chopped
  • 5 tablespoons breadcrumbs
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 85 grams (3 ounces) cheddar cheese cubed
  • Olive oil non-stick cooking spray
  1. Preheat the oven to 200 degrees C (392 degrees F). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the ground chicken, grated vegetables, parsley, breadcrumbs, salt and pepper.
  3. Mix until all ingredients are combined. If the mixture is too wet add more breadcrumbs.
  4. Take 1 tablespoon of the mixture, put a cube of cheddar cheese in the center and form a ball (slightly wet your hands, it helps from sticking).
  5. Place the meatballs on the baking sheet, spray with olive oil and bake for 20 minutes or until golden.
  6. Enjoy!
