Recipe instructions Pesto Chicken Meatballs

1

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Arrange a rack in the top third of the oven and preheat. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.

2

Place the ground chicken, breadcrumbs, pesto, egg, salt, and pepper in a large bowl. Mix lightly with a fork until just combined.

3

Form the meat mixture into 20 (about 1 1/2-inch) meatballs and place them on the prepared baking sheet, spacing them out evenly as you go.

4

Bake until browned and an instant-read thermometer inserted into the middle reads 165 degrees F (80 degrees C), about 15 minutes. Switch the oven to broil and continue to cook until the tops of the meatballs turn golden-brown in spots, 3 to 5 minutes more.

5

Serve with additional basil pesto or warmed marinara sauce for dipping.

You can keep Pesto Chicken Meatballs in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days.

This simple grain salad has become a staple in my house: I keep cooked wheat berries on hand, so all that’s needed are some fresh tomatoes, corn and basil from the market. For a heartier lunch or a light dinner, I fold in feta and a thick lemon topping. The result? Our new summertime salad. Grain salad with tomato, corn, and basil is a delicious and nutritious dish that combines the flavors of fresh vegetables with hearty grains. It typically includes cooked grains such as quinoa, bulgur, or farro, mixed with fresh cherry tomatoes, sweet corn kernels, and fragrant basil leaves. The salad is often dressed with a simple vinaigrette made from olive oil, lemon juice, and herbs. This salad is not only flavorful but also very versatile. It can be served as a side dish or as a main course, and it's perfect for picnics, potlucks, or as a light and refreshing meal on a hot day. The combination of grains and vegetables provides a good balance of carbohydrates, fiber, and essential nutrients, making it a healthy and satisfying option for any occasion.
