There are so many different ways to enjoy this greek meatball recipe. Two of my favorite ways are:
Serve in pitas: To enjoy these chicken meatballs in a pita, cut the pitas in half and open up the pocket. Spread tzatziki inside followed by some cucumber, red onion, and bell pepper.
Cut the chicken meatballs in half and place them inside the pita followed by lettuce, fresh mint, and some tasty crumbled feta. You can also make a homemade tzatziki with greek yogurt.
Serve on a salad: To add these baked chicken meatballs to a salad, put down a bed of lettuce followed by chopped veggies, the chicken meatballs, crumbled feta, and fresh mint. Use tzatziki as a dressing or cut-up meatballs and toss the salad in a simple mixture of olive oil, red wine vinegar, and lemon juice.
This greek meatball recipe also pairs well with a bowl of white rice, cauliflower rice, or some oven-roasted potatoes. You can also serve them alongside this easy greek salad recipe.

It is very easy to make this greek meatball recipe gluten-free. Just use almond flour instead of bread crumbs.
If you are looking for a dairy-free chicken meatball, just omit the feta cheese. You could also replace it with a plant based feta cheese.
If you do not have ground chicken or you prefer turkey, you can also use ground turkey for this greek meatball recipe.
To add ever more flavor to this greek chicken meatball recipe, feel free to mix in additional ingredients like finely diced red onion or chopped kalamata olives.
How to make greek Chicken Meatballs
Step 1: Make the meatballs
To begin, preheat the oven to 375. While the oven is preheating, place the ground chicken, diced bell pepper, egg, crumbled feta, bread crumbs, and seasonings into a large mixing bowl.
Use clean hands or a spoon to mix everything together very well. I find that using my hands is the best way to get everything perfectly mixed.
Then, scoop out 12 meatballs either using a spoon, cookie scoop, or your hands. Each chicken meatball should be about 2 tbsp. Then, roll each into a ball with wet hands.
Step 2: Sear the meatballs
Next, you will want to heat a drizzle of olive oil in an oven-safe skillet over medium heat. Sear the meatballs on one side for about 3 minutes.
Then, flip the meatballs carefully because they will be slightly soft. Place the skillet in the oven so they can finish cooking.
Step 3: bake the Meatballs and serve
Lastly, cook the chicken meatballs in the oven at 375F for 12-14 minutes. Check for an internal temperature of at least 165F to determine if the meatballs are cooked.
Once the baked chicken meatballs are fully cooked through, take them out of rthe oven and allow them to slightly cool before serving.
Once prepared, allow the meatballs to cool completely and transfer to an airtight container. Then, store the meatballs in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.
Reheat in an oven, toaster oven, or in microwave. It sometimes helps to slice the meatballs before reheating if you plan on serving them sliced anyway.
Can I Freeze These Greek chicken meatballs?
Yes! I find that meatballs freeze really well. Some of my other freezer friendly meatball recipes are listed below.
To freeze this recipe, let the greek meatballs cool completely and then freeze in an airtight container. Let them thaw before reheating them in an oven, toaster oven, or microwave.
