Chicken Meatballs

I’ve had an emotional day. I can’t tell you exactly why, but I’m pretty sure it has a lot to do with my hashimotos disease. Sometimes I’m super grumpy and I cry or get angry for no reason at all. For whatever reason cooking makes me feel better. Why shouldn’t I go ahead and make some lunches for the little munchkin? I always like to have food that is processed as little as I possibly can. I really hate to send things that are unhealthy. I have a really hard time not giving him as much healthy food as I can. I guess this stems from my fear that my own health problems might be given to him. We live in a country where most of our residents are insulin resistant and a lot are starting to show signs of having things like hashimoto’s and grave’s disease. This isn’t something that I want for Cooper. I don’t know what the chances of him having these things are, but I’ll do what I can do to prevent. These are his favorite. I don’t even know where I got this recipe from, but it’s a keeper in this household.

 

3/4 cup grated parmesan cheese

1/2 cup bread crumbs

1 tablespoon parsley

1 1/2 teaspoons thyme

1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt

1 1/2 teaspoons pepper

2 eggs

1 lb ground chicken

string cheese sticks

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix all ingredients together, except the cheese sticks. Cut each cheese stick into 4 pieces. I use a small cookie scooper and divide the meat into balls. Then I flatten them and put the cheese in the middle and roll it in my hands to make meatballs. Cook for about 20 minutes.

    1. I agree. I really think that it would be great with other cheeses. I think you could even change the spices up a little and make different type of ethnic flavors too. It’s next on my list!

    1. It’s interesting that you guys say this! I have some turkey in the freezer right now and I’ve been thinking about trying it with the turkey. Turkey is so versatile. Really you can make many mock beef type recipes with it, so don’t see why you couldn’t do the same thing with it for chicken.

      1. No reason at all Heather except Turkey is lower in fat and slightly higher on the protein but not much in it at all so either are an option 🙂
