Chicken and Tomato Meatballs Recipe
1 slice white bread
2 Tbsp milk
1 pound ground chicken
1 can 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.

What a wonderful twist on the meatball! These sound just delicious. I have never cooked with ground chicken, not sure why, but I can only imagine how much flavor these would have! I have always use bread crumbs so I cannot wait to see how using actual bread works in the recipe!
