    Chicken Meatballs with Zoodles

    Make every day a keto food holiday with recipes that taste great, look amazing and take just a few minutes out of your busy schedule.

    These chicken meatballs are inspired by the classic Mediterranean delicacy and accompanied by cheesy zoodles, all made from scratch in less than 30 minutes.

    We made our own minced chicken meat but feel free to get store-bought minced chicken as long as it’s not enriched with starch, potatoes or any type of carbs.

    Chicken Meatballs with Zoodles

    What you’ll need for the Chicken Meatballs:

    • 1 large Chicken Breast (skinless and boneless)
    • 1 Egg
    • 1 tbsp Flaxseed
    • 4 tbsp Almond Flour
    • 4 tbsp Parmesan Cheese grated
    • 1 tsp Salt
    • 1/4 tsp Black Pepper
    • 1/2 cup extra virgin Olive Oil

    What you’ll need for the Zoodles (Zucchini Noodles):

    • 1 large Zucchini
    • 1 tbsp Parmesan
    • 1 tbsp extra virgin Olive Oil
    • 1/4 tsp Salt

    Now, let’s get started!

    How to Make Chicken Meatballs

    First, process the chicken breast in a blender or food processor to get a minced meat consistency.

    Next, add the egg, almond flour, parmesan cheese, salt and pepper to the minced chicken and knead until you get a dough.

    Now you’ll want to shape the mixture into bite-sized meatballs.

    Once they’re ready, heat the olive oil in a non-stick pan and sauté the meatballs, tossing to cook evenly.

    How to Make Zucchini Noodles (Zoodles)

    Once the meatballs are done, cut the edges off the zucchini and using a vegetable peeler cut long, thin strips lengthwise.

    Heat one tablespoon of olive oil in a wide pan and sauté the zoodles for a minute.

    Add the parmesan cheese and mix gently.

    Finally, transfer the zoodles onto plates and add the chicken meatballs on top.

    Serve hot!
