Whether you’ve got a bunch of entertaining to do, or you’re just hosting a group of your kids’ friends for a Saturday night sleepover, a good chicken meatball recipes is great to have in your back pocket. And if one’s good, how about three? Our friends at Bell & Evans, based in Fredericksburg, PA, knows a thing or two about high-quality chicken (it is, in fact, the oldest branded chicken company in America), and they have shared a trio of easy and delicious variations on chicken meatballs. Starting with a baked batch of Bell & Evans’ prepared chicken meatballs, you can steer the flavor profile in a number of interesting directions.
For a fun cocktail-party snack or hors d’oeuvres, try Asian-inspired soy or teriyaki-glazed with a sprinkle of sesame seeds and scallions and a squeeze of lime juice. We love the Mediterranean style meatballs for a nutritious lunch, with a swipe of your favorite hummus, red onions, cilantro, pine nuts and feta topping the meatballs, with a piece of pita bread on the side. For a hearty dinner, a saucy marinara, meatball and mozzarella skillet bake with a pot of spaghetti will please even the pickiest eaters at the table.
