Mediterranean Chicken Meat Balls

Mediterranean Chicken Meat Balls

Today we have a WINNING recipe for you so that you can WIN in your nutrition and WIN in life!

Today’s WINNING recipe to meet Coach JC’s 10 WINNING Habits is Mediterranean Chicken Meat Balls.   Where is my lean protein?

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup chopped basil, parsley or dill
  • 1/2 medium red onion
  • 1/4 cup sun-dried tomatoes canned in oil, drained
  • 1 pound lean ground turkey (or chicken)
  • 1 teaspoon oregano
  • 1/2 cup of panko bread crumbs
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tablespoon crushed garlic
  • 1 tablespoon canola oil

Directions

Preheat oven to 375°F.

To make the meatballs, mix together ground meat with herbs, diced onion, chopped sun-dried tomatoes, oregano, panko, egg, crushed garlic (or minced cloves), 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt, and pepper. Start with 1/2 cup of panko and add more if the mixture looks too wet. Roll meatballs, about 1.5″ in diameter.

Place a cooling rack into a baking sheet and keep that next to your meatball searing station.

Heat a non-stick frying pan, saute pan or cast iron skillet over medium-high heat. Add 1 tablespoon of oil.

Add meatballs to heated oil. Sear meatballs until golden, about 2 minutes on each side. Move meatballs to the cooling rack when seared. Repeat if you had to split the meatballs into more than 1 batch.

Place meatballs in the oven and bake for 12 to 15 minutes, or until internal temperature reaches 165°F.

    "If you want to WIN more in life you are in the right place my friend! I am blessed and privileged everyday to help people WIN more in life.

    I got my start as the youngest Director of Strength & Conditioning at the Division I level at Oral Roberts University and have been blessed to COACH professional athletes from the NFL, NBA, MLB, MLS, and WNBA through Dynamic Sports Development. As an ENTREPRENEUR I then started Bootcamp Tulsa to help women WIN in their Fitness, Nutrition & in Life. On a daily basis I now run our Non-Profit, 501 (c) (3), Fit First Responders serving those that serve us everyday, our Police Officers, Firefighters, Medics and national Guard.

    If I'm not helping people WIN through my Performance Coaching you will find me motivating people on stage through my MOTIVATIONAL SPEAKING in churches, companies, universities and athletic organizations. I even took some of that motivation and combined it with a winning game plan to author a few books. I love helping people WIN but there is nothing I'm more passionate about then being a FATHER to my beautiful daughter and a HUSBAND to my hot wife."
