Gluten Free Chicken Parmesan Meatballs

I’m in the middle of my intense “get in the school groove” this week. I’m hitting the school room hard, organizing and planning, trying to get ready for this new school year.

My motto for the year?

“I think I can, I think I can…”

Our summer has been one mad rush, which makes it seem like we had no summer at all. I’m not complaining. I enjoy the camps and sports that the kids are involved in. It’s awesome to see them growing into the young adults they should be. It’s just that I have to get used to the new normal of having teenagers and all of the running around that comes with it.

And that means I’m going to need some quick, healthy dinners on hand for those evenings on the run. We all love homemade meatballs, including these gluten free chicken Parmesan meatballs. They’re made with 93% lean ground chicken, which means they are low in fat and high in protein.

Gluten Free Meatballs

So what makes the chicken Parmesan meatballs special? Well, they’re gluten free. I find ground chicken very “wet” when I work with it, so I added 1/2 cup coconut flour to the 3 pounds of ground chicken to make it easier to form balls. Eggs help the meatballs to keep their shape once they are baked.  Oh, and if you don’t need this recipe to be gluten free, simply add some dry bread crumbs in place of the coconut flour. Instant yumminess.

Season the meatballs with Italian seasoning and garlic salt. Two of my favorite seasonings.
