Lemon Parmesan Chicken Meatballs


  • 1 ½ lbs. ground chicken
  • ½ C Italian breadcrumbs
  • 2 T chopped white onion
  • ½ C fresh parmesan cheese
  • 4 ounces fresh mozzarella cheese, chopped
  • 1/2 lemon – zested
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 whisked eggs
  • 1 ½ T olive oil
  • 1 small can of pizza sauce (14 ounces)
  • Salt
  • Pepper


  1. Combine ingredients in a large bowl, cover with plastic wrap, and allow to chill in the fridge for an hour. This will prevent your meatballs from breaking up when they first encounter heat.
  2. Pre-Heat your grill to between 350-450 degrees, or medium heat.
  3. Form meatballs to be about 2 inches in diameter. Brush meatballs with light coating of olive oil. Place in Outset Nonstick Meatball basket and set basket on grill.
  4. Cook meatballs for 8-12 minutes or until browning has occurred. Flip basket and grill for another 8-10 minutes.
  5. Allow meatballs to sit for 5-10 minutes after cooking. Serve over spaghetti or with a marinara dipping sauce as an elegant appetizer.
