Mini Chicken Meatballs"! You mean they’re tiny and bite-sized and perfectly loaded with Parmesan cheese"! Yes, friends. That’s exactly what I mean.
A few days ago I posted a recipe for that super quick 5 Minute Romesco Sauce. You were happy, I was happy, our blenders were happy – in general we all liked what was going on with that sauce .
But then I went and made lots of things with the sauce, one of those things being Mini Chicken Meatballs, and I was convicted – what kind of food blog friend would I be if I didn’t also show you the most delicious way that this sauce has manifested itself into a full blown dinner recipe" Not a good one. This is Deliciousness Level: Shout From The Rooftops and so that’s exactly what I’m going to do except my rooftop is more like a little corner of the internet and my shouting is more like nerdy-fast fingers flying across a keyboard. BUT WE’RE DOING THIS.
Mini Chicken Meatballs (plus crispy potatoes plus two kinds of sauce not even sorry), here we come.
I’m not going to lie to you – we made these a few times and I started to get a little sick of them after a while. It was mainly for two reasons – 1) they were in my life for like 8 meals in a row, and 2) they were too big.
Enter: Mini Concept.
I wanted them to keep their round shape better than the large ones, and I also wanted them to have a higher surface area to inside ration (these are the crazy things I think about when it comes to food). So we made them into these little mini two-bite meatballs and BOOM. Just like that, all was right in the chicken meatball world.
They get perfectly golden brown (with a good balance per bite of outside to inside textures) and they can be eaten in just two bites with a fork – no need to cut anything in half just to get a good amount of sauce coverage.
Speaking of sauce coverage.
I’ll just tell you what I did and you can work with it however you want:...
