Ingredients (serves 4 | makes 12 meatballs)

  • 1 Large egg
  • 650g Chicken mince
  • 1/2 cup Breadcrumbs
  • 1/3 cup Grated parmesan
  • 2 Tbsp Olive oil
  • 1 tsp Oregano
  • 1/2 tsp Garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp Onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 1/4 tsp Chilli Flakes
  • 2 Tbsp Tomato Paste
  • 2 Tbsp Parsley (fresh if possible)
  • 2 + 1/2 cup Baby Spinach


  1. Place a rack in the upper third of the oven and preheat the oven to 200 degrees C. Lightly coat a 9x13-inch baking dish or rimmed baking sheet with nonstick spray
  2. Beat the egg in the bottom of a large bowl. Add the chicken, breadcrumbs, Parmesan, 1 tablespoon olive oil, oregano, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, red pepper flakes, parsley, and 1 tablespoon tomato paste.
  3. Finely chop the spinach so that it is in small bits, then add it to the bowl. With a fork or your hands (I’m all about the hands here), mix until well combined, being careful not to compact the meat. Shape the mixture into 12 meatballs and arrange in the prepared baking dish so that they do not touch.
  4. In a small bowl, whisk together the remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil and 1 tablespoon tomato paste. It won’t be perfectly smooth but will bake up just fine. Brush over the top of the meatballs.
  5. Bake the meatballs in the upper third of the oven for 18 to 22 minutes, until cooked through. Serve hot with pasta, zucchini noodles, inside a hot dog bun, or any way you choose!

  • Oh yum, I can see the chilli in these in the picture, I reckon they’ll be spicey

  • Yum yum yum these meatballs look absolutely amazing


  • These look really tasty.

    • Great as a meal, a snack or finger food.


  • I like using chicken mince and this recipe for the meatballs sounds so delicious. I’ll be trying it shortly especially as we are a family of chilli eaters.


  • Yummy!


  • So I would love these but without the chilli.


  • I love chilli.But will make some without chilli for kids.


  • No chilli in the house, but I wold make them and substitute it with sweet paprika and capsicum

    • yes sweet paprika is a good alternative


  • I like chill so Definitely making this for a healthy snack option , and could even be made healthier with turkey mince.


  • I’d make these but without the chilli. They look so tasty


  • These sound nice but I think I would omit the chilli flakes.


  • What’s the “heat” level on these? I’d love to try them on my family, but am worried that the kids might not handle the chilli all that well. Does anyone think this recipe could still work minus the chilli?


  • Thanks for sharing, my hub will probably like them
