Chicken Meatball Tips:
- Don’t overwork the meat by mixing too long. Less is better when mixing any meat for meatballs.
- If the meat gets too warm just stick it in the refrigerator for about 5 minutes.
- If you want the meatballs browned a little on top, stick under the broiler for about 2-3 minutes.
- Don’t be tempted to over bake your meatballs as this will dry them out.
- If your hands get sticky, simply rinse with cold water.
