Servings 4 people


  • 1 pound ground chicken
  • 1 small egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 4 cup riced cauliflower
  • 4 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons butter


  • Gather your ingredients and pre-heat a large pan over medium heat.
  • While your pan heats, combine the ground chicken, egg, pepper, salt, minced garlic, and Parmesan cheese in a large mixing bowl.
  • Add the olive oil to your pan and allow it to warm.
  • While you're waiting on the olive oil, form small 2-3" meatballs from the chicken mixture (you can do this with a cookie scoop or your hands).
  • Place the chicken meatballs carefully in your heated pan.
  • Cook the meatballs for about 5 minutes on each side - about 15-20 minutes total or until they are cooked through, then remove them from the pan.
  • Serve your meatballs over riced cauliflower (or spiralized zucchini) . You can eat them as is (they're delicious), or sauce them with pesto, alfredo, marinara, or even dust them with some more parmesan.
