Preheat the oven to 350F/180 C. Line a baking sheet 18”x13” with parchment paper.
In a mixing bowl, add all the ingredients and mix well.
If the mixture is too sticky and you can’t easily form the balls, cover the mixture with a plastic wrap and place in the fridge for 20 to 30 minutes. Proceed to the next step.
Oil a meatball or an ice cream scoop and scoop from the mixture and release the balls on the baking sheet. You can also wet or oil your hands and form equal size balls and then place them on the baking sheet.
Bake the chicken meatballs in the middle shelf of your oven for 25 minutes.
Serve hot with your favorite sauce or mashed potato.
If the meatball mixture is too wet and is difficult for you to form the balls, cover it and refrigerate for 20 to 30 minutes and then try to oil or wet your hands with water and form the balls.
You can make chicken mince in a blender or food processor. Remove the skin and any bones from the chicken piece you are using. Cut the chicken into small cubes and in batches add it to the food processor or blender. Make sure to clean the blender and food processor thoroughly before and after use.
To make a smaller size meatball, bake for 20 to 22 minutes.
If your oven does not prompt you when it reaches the desired temperature, turn the oven on for 15 minutes and then place the meatballs inside it to bake.
