My preferred method of cooking any meatball is definitely the oven! A slow oven cooked meatball beats a skillet cooked meatball any day. Skillet-cooking risks over cooking or under cooking the meat, which is not good.  Oven baked chicken meatballs are guaranteed to be juicer than any other method of cooking them! There is almost nothing worse than a dried out meatball hidden under a sauce. But these chicken meatballs are so good you don’t even need a sauce for them.

Also, you can without a doubt replace the ground chicken in this recipe with beef, lamb or pork. It’s entirely up to you!
