I love a good meatball, but I’ve always been a bit intimidated by the preparation process. First, you need an Italian grandmother, a chicken that lays fresh eggs, and years, even decades, of meatball-making wisdom. Well, needless to say, I didn’t have any of that. So, instead, I tested the waters and actually tried a recipe that sounded relatively simple. I was surprised — the recipe was easy to make, the meatballs were tasty, and they actually tasted better with time.

You can make them in a snap in your Magic Bullet. Enjoy them on their own, in a sub, or in a pasta dish of your choosing, and voila! The perfect, homemade meal.

This recipe also substitutes chicken for the classic ground beef to produce a healthier meatball. The chicken adds a nice consistency and flavor, as well!
