Air fried chicken Greek meatballs:

There is no denying it, I am a sucker for all types of meatballs for easy weeknight dinner options during the week. Because they are easy to throw together, the flavor combinations are endless, and everyone can tailor the meatballs into whatever type of dish they prefer. Meatball bowls, wraps, or meatball sub sandwiches.

Why air fry meatballs?

There is just something about air frying meatballs that gets me every time. They get this nice crunch on the outside but always nice and juicy in the inside. But don’t worry you can also bake or pan fry these too.

Ingredients you will need for meatballs:

  1. Ground chicken (substitute any type of ground meat you like)
  2. Fresh mint
  3. Egg
  4. Garlic powder
  5. Fresh Mint
  6. Siete Foods Grain Free Chips (substitute: crackers, panko bread crumbs, bread crumbs, or 2 tsp coconut flour)
  7. Salt
  8. Ground pepper
  9. Primal Palate Super Gyro seasoning (substitute 1/4 tsp dried oregano, 1/4 tsp dried thyme, 1/4 tsp marjarom)
  10. Onion powder
  11. Fresh cilantro

How to prepare meatballs in air fryer:

Start by whisking egg in a medium bowl, add in the ground chicken and mix. And then add in the seasonings, fresh chopped herbs, and mix until incorporated. Using a Tbsp ice cream scoop, scoop out the meatball mixture, and add to a greased air fryer dish. And you can try and form into a pretty meatball with your hands. But the mixture is pretty sticky so you may need to wet your hands with water and form.

Bake time in air fryer:

And once the meatballs are in the air fryer, set to 400°F for 15-18 minutes.

What if I don’t have an air fryer?

And don’t worry, if you don’t have an air fryer you can still make these. You can either bake in the oven or pan fry with some oil over stove top. If baking, I would bake on 350°F for 20-25 minutes.

What can I serve these meatballs with?

These chicken greek meatballs are great for meal prepping. Because there are a variety of ways you can use them up during your work week. So leftovers are never boring! But here are a couple of my favorite ways to use them in balanced meals for the week.

  1. Loaded Greek chicken meatball bowls. With a homemade tzatziki sauce, cucumber salad, Instant pot bone broth Basmati rice, and roasted cauliflower + garlic hummus.
  2. Flatbread Greek Chicken meatball wraps with shredded lettuce, homemade tzatziki sauce, and hummus.
