Basil Chicken Meatballs

Meatballs make for a fun and easy "small bite" meal. You can add the flavors you love best and it almost always works. To follow up Monday's post, here is the recipe for my super simple Basil Chicken Meatballs.  I threw them together at the last minute and they were just so very tasty. Full of the best flavors and fresh ingredients, these are a new weeknight favorite in the Moore house! Dress them up with a simple tzatziki for dipping, and they would make a wonderful addition to any appetizer menu.

Basil Chicken Meatballs

1 lb. ground organic chicken 
8 fresh basil leaves, chopped
1/2 cup yellow onion, finely chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
1 egg, lightly beaten
salt + pepper, to season 

Preheat oven to 400 Degrees. 

In a large bowl, combine chicken, basil, onion, garlic, egg and season with salt and pepper. Form mixture into balls roughly the size of your palm. You should end up with 10-12 medium sized meatballs. Bake for 15-20 minutes.
