Recipe type: dinner
Cuisine: Italian
Serves: 20
  • 1 cup rice pilaf, cooled
  • 1½ pounds ground chicken
  • ¼ cup onion, grated
  • 2 cloves garlic, grated
  • 3 tablespoons parsley, chopped
  • 1 cup grated Parmigiano Reggiano cheese
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • Salt and pepper
  • Extra virgin olive oil (EVOO), for drizzling
  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine the rice with the ground chicken, onion, garlic, parsley, Parmigiano Reggiano and egg.
  2. Season with salt and freshly ground black pepper.
  3. Flatten out the mixture in the bowl and score it into four portions using the side of your hand.
  4. Shape each portion into five balls — you should have 20 meatballs in total.
  5. Arrange the meatballs on a nonstick sheet pan and drizzle them with EVOO.
  6. Place in the oven and bake until the meatballs are cooked through and golden brown, about 10-12 minutes.
  7. If they are not golden brown leave in the oven for an additional 15-20 minutes.
