I don't think that there's anything more I can say about meatballs. Over the years, I've covered all the reasons why I believe they are the ultimate family food. They are easy to make! You can make them in big batches and freeze them! Kids love meatballs! Grown-ups do, too! They're versatile! You can make Turkey Meatballs, Thai Chicken Meatballs, Indian Spiced Meatballs, Greek Meatballs and, now, these BBQ Chicken Meatballs. You can throw them in a hearty Meatball and White Bean Escarole Soup! You can pack them for school lunch! They make an awesome early finger food! You get the point. These super easy BBQ Chicken Meatballs are the latest addition to my meatball recipe collection. The mixture, which is nothing more than ground chicken, breadcrumbs, eggs, spices, and (yum) cheddar cheese, comes together in a a single bowl. Then roll, pan fry, sauce, and serve. It's so easy that I was able to make them for you in this short 3 minute video. And, honestly, there's very little that isn't captured in real time—just a little cooking. (more after the jump)
