Greek Chicken Meatballs

Ingredients:

• 2 pounds ground chicken

• 1 teaspoon salt

• 1/4 teaspoon black pepper

• 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin

• 1/2 teaspoon ground oregano

• 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes

• 1/4 cup fresh dill, chopped

• 1/4 cup fresh mint, chopped

• 1/4 cup finely diced red onion

• 4 cloves garlic, finely minced

• 1/2 teaspoon lemon zest

• 1 tablespoon olive oil, for frying

For Serving :

– chopped romaine

– feta, for serving

– cucumber

– tomato

– white rice

– tzatziki sauce

Method:

1 – Add the meatball ingredients to a small mixing bowl and use your hands to mix until well combined. Next, use a cookie dough scoop or tablespoon to scoop out the chicken mixture and use your hands to form into meatballs.

2 – When the meatballs are formed, heat a large skillet over medium heat and then add a tablespoon of oil. Next add the meatballs to the hot skillet and cook for roughly 3-4 minutes per side until browned and the internal temperature reaches 165 degrees Fahrenheit. You may have to do this in batches depending on the size of your skillet.
