Fresh Herb Chicken Meatballs

Fresh Herb Chicken Meatballs

These tender Fresh Herb Chicken Meatballs, with a delicious lemon garlic butter sauce, come together quickly and can be prepped early in the day!

Scott and I have been enjoying these Fresh Herb Chicken Meatballs on and off for the past few weeks as I've tested the recipe, tweaking it a bit here and there. It's perfect now and I made them one last time yesterday in order to shoot a few pics (to entice you). Throughout the photoshoot, our mouths were watering and we could hardly wait to finish up and enjoy the fruits of our labor for dinner. Once again, it did not disappoint!

I love that these Fresh Herb Chicken Meatballs can be prepped early in the day and popped in the refrigerator until just before serving. A 15-minute stint in a hot oven is all that's needed to finish them off. While the oven does the work, you have time to make a quick lemon garlic butter sauce which is drizzled over the meatballs when serving.
