Ranch Chicken Meatballs With Broccoli Couscous

We love these ranch chicken meatballs! Juicy chicken meatballs drizzled with ranch dressing and served with broccoli couscous for a delicious weeknight meal.

Let’s start with the ranch chicken meatballs!

To make these meatballs, I use a few things that bring out a “ranch” flavor. Dried dill and dried chives, some garlic and onion powder, just to name a few. I like to add in some finely grated cheddar cheese too, for extra oomph and flavor.

Along with an egg, a sprinkle of breadcrumbs and salt and pepper – these come together so easily. I brown them in a skillet and like to keep a meat thermometer nearby to make sure they are cooked to perfection. Since these don’t have a sauce and chicken meatballs can end up with a dry texture, this is ideal.

It’s the best satisfying meal and one that always feels really special. It’s different than our usual meals and tends to be a welcomed change.
