Ingredients

Scale
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 lb ground chicken
  • 1/3 cup feta cheese
  • 1/2 red onion, very finely diced
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/2 tbsp chopped fresh parsley
  • 1/2 tbsp chopped fresh mint
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 1/4 tsp ground cumin
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • zest of 1 lemon

Instructions

  1. Add the ground chicken, feta cheese, red onion, garlic, fresh parsley, fresh mint, oregano, cumin, salt, pepper, and the zest of a lemon to large bowl.
  2. Combine thoroughly.
  3. Next roll about 1 tbsp sized scoops of the meat mixture into balls.  I like to place the rolled meatballs on a parchment paper lined plate or tray while I roll the rest.
  4. Add the olive oil to a large skillet or pan on the stover over medium-high heat.  Once the oil is hot, add the meatballs to the pan.
  5. Sear the meatballs for 2-3 minutes.  Flip and sear on the other side for another 2-3 minutes.
  6. Next reduce to heat and cover the pan for another 5 minutes to cook the greek meatballs fully through.
  7. Serve the meatballs with greek salad, homemade tzatziki sauce, and extra feta cheese.  Enjoy!
