Chicken Feta Meatballs


I usually make my meatballs with ground beef and veal but this time decided to make something different. I am using ground chicken to make these Chicken Feta Meatballs. It's a quick meal, perfect for a weeknight when you are rushing to put dinner on the table.

You can make a double batch and freeze half of it for when your schedule is packed and you don't have time to stop at the grocery store on the way home.
