These yummy chicken and tomato meatballs incorporate tomatoes for a yummy flavor boost. Make a big batch and store them in the freezer. They make a perfect quick dinner or a fun appetizer for un expected guests. Thanks to Red Gold for providing me with tomato products to experiment with and come up with this new family favorite.
Chicken and Tomato Meatballs Recipe
1 slice white bread
2 Tbsp milk
1 pound ground chicken
1 can Red Gold Diced Tomatoes with Basil, Garlic & Oregano, drained well (I also chopped them a bit smaller)
Salt and pepper to taste
3 Tbsp canola or vegetable oil
Tear bread into small pieces. In a medium bowl, add milk and mash bread until it becomes a thick paste. Mix in remaining ingredients. Form small balls approximately 2″ in diameter.
To cook on stove top:
Heat oil in a large skillet. Drop chicken balls into oil and cook until first side is browned. Flip and continue to cook on the other side until brown and cooked through..
Heat grill to medium high. Place balls on skewers and grill, rotating occasionally, until browned on all sides and cooked through.
Serve as-is or with dipping sauces – marinara, BBQ or ranch.
