Light & Easy Chicken Meatballs ~ Low Carb ~ Meal Plan Approved ~ Noreen’s Kitchen

Hi everyone, welcome back to my kitchen today We've got a little bit of a different what's for dinner My girls are on an eating plan and we're coming up with great recipes for them to enjoy Using the items that they're able to eat each meal

These are chicken meatballs served in a really beautiful light marinara that we shared in another video served over zucchini noodles and I can't wait to share it with you Let's go see how this all comes together All right, we're gonna get ready making these really delicious and I kid you not these are super delicious chicken meatballs Now the reason that I came up with this recipe Was because Molly and Micah for this summer have chosen an eating plan That is low carb but balanced and they do get some starches and whatnot But they're also on a workout plan What have you so we're taking what they're allowed to eat and we're creating recipes from that list And this is one of them This is a chicken meatball We're gonna bake it in the oven We're going to simmer this in a homemade stovetop marinara sauce That's very light No sugar added but we're gonna make that in a separate video and I will link you down below to that video Where you can see how we made that but these meatballs are super versatile

You can eat them by themselves You can add your favorite barbecue sauce You can add put these in simmer them in marinara like we're gonna do today You could cut them up and put them on a Low-carb pizza with a cauliflower crust you can put them in a salad if you like There are a lot of options you can make a whole bunch of these at the beginning of the week when you're doing your meal prep And then you can eat these for lunch or dinner or whenever you have a protein snack and it's gonna be really easy So what we're starting off with is two pounds of ground chicken, but I don't like ground turkey I absolutely detest it So ground chicken is the way to go for us I have two pounds here And what we're gonna do is we're gonna take two eggs and the way we're gonna bind this besides the eggs is almond meal This is one cup of fine grind almond meal You can opt to put a cup of parmesan in here as well But then what we're going to get most of our flavor is through this spice blend that we have here I have a teaspoon each of kosher salt finely ground black pepper Parsley onion powder garlic powder dried basil and I have also a teaspoon of Italian seasoning and pizza seasoning You can basically make this Whatever you like because if you're gonna make this like an Asian style You can throw some soy sauce in here and you can throw ginger and lemongrass here today We're going Italian style, but you can you know adjust this to suit your desired flavor profile And then all you're gonna do is get your hands in here and mix this up and then we're going to scoop this with our measuring scoop into approximately 1 ounce Meatballs, that's how easy it is to mix that up I'm gonna go get my baking sheet and my scoop and we're gonna start scooping these Okay I have finished rolling out the meatballs as you can see I think I got one two, three and a half ish dozen and we're gonna pop these in a 375 degree oven for 18 to 20 minutes or until an internal temperature on a meat thermometer reads 165 degrees and then we'll be back when these are ready Okay guys, I just wanted to show you how I spiralized noodles This spiralizer came with my ninja intellisense kitchen system You all have seen me use that you've used the blender cup and the food processor that came with it I love this thing It literally has replaced at least three appliances in my kitchen and it's so easy to use so this is the main cup then this is the little It is not a sponsored video

But at all I'm just showing you how this works This is the collection ball it came with this this blade this the only blade it came with but it all they also have other blades you can get for it and Then this little doodad slips right in here I mean it is a huge contraption for what it does, but I gotta tell ya, I love it it works in just a second and You got zucchini noodles or squash noodles or sweet potato fries Curly fries you can put so many things in here and spiralize them You can do apples if you cut them the right way and Awesome, so anyway, you want to turn it on And then you're going to set up your zucchini Make sure you wash it top and tail it and then this thing has like little rubber feet like grabbers inside and then you want to make sure that the This has like a little three prong thing and with prongs on the bottom and then you're going to hit the Go button And then you're always gonna have this little nub thing, I think you can't have a worm Does the turtle of the worm? All right Well, then we'll keep it right there I'd like to do one zucchini at a time and then can just lift it out and have a bowl ready next to you and Then zucchini noodles I'm gonna do three zucchini today You have your choice of how you're going to deal with the zucchini? I'm not gonna show you what I do with mine I'm just gonna saute this in a very small amount of olive oil with a little bit of garlic and Italian seasoning That's as easy as it's gonna get you really only want to do this for a few moments You don't want this to get super soggy You still want this to have a little toothsome this to it and you want it to have a nice chew So you want it like all dente pasta? It's gonna be delicious with the sauce We're gonna put on it and you'll see this in the finished product But you guys can handle sauteing this in a skillet with a little bit of olive oil like less than a teaspoon You don't need a lot you're gonna just let some of the water come out of it and Then make sure you saute a little garlic before you toss this in the pan and you'll be good to go I'm gonna go finish this we're waiting on our meatballs and then we'll come back and we will show you what this looks like our Chicken meatballs are all done and ready to go We're gonna simmer half of these in a sauce that I have in the pan underneath this sheet pan Let me grab a pair of tongs so I can show you Actually turn it off because it needs to stop spinning All right

So what I'm gonna do now is I'm just gonna put half of what's on this tray in this sauce All right, we we've decided that we're gonna simmer all the meatballs in the sauce after consulting Molly we decided to just go ahead and throw them all in here, but keep in mind you can Do so many many things with these meatballs and this sauce separately to No think outside the box let your imagination Come up with some really great ideas if you are on some sort of eating plan The worst thing is getting bored and having appetite fatigue because you're constantly eating Pan-seared chicken breasts a side salad and half a cup of steamed broccoli And maybe a little bit of rice if you're lucky so keep that in mind we're just gonna let this simmer for about five minutes and that's gonna help to infuse these meatballs with the deliciousness of this sauce and Then when we come back, I'll show you what it looks like because we're gonna fix you a plate because I know you're hungry There you have it all plate it up and ready to serve because we eat with our eyes first we have one serving zucchini noodles that beautiful easy light marinara that we made in another video I have linked down below and there will be an AI card here on the screen You can click right through when you're done watching this one along with these delicious Chicken meatballs that we just cooked up for you This is a beauty our whole family enjoys this so we're all gonna be eating this for dinner tonight It doesn't matter if you're on a special diet or not this is just good food, and I hope this gives you a little inspiration and encourages you to look at what you're able to have and See what you can make with that The number one key here is infusing flavor Every time you eat Otherwise you're gonna get tired of it and you're not gonna want to eat and you're gonna go off of it So that's not what your ultimate goal here is what honey, right variety is absolutely important So these are our chicken meatballs in slow simmered marinara over zucchini noodles, and it's time to eat I hope you give these a try If you liked today's video, please consider giving me a thumbs up and if you are here for the first time I want to say welcome It's always a pleasure to invite new folks into my kitchen Please be sure and hit that subscribe button And if you are a tried-and-true member of the Noreen's kitchen family Please be sure and hit the bell notification button so that whenever we upload new content You will get a notification either on your smart phone or by email Letting you know that we have something new to enjoy because we don't want any You to miss out on all the real food for real people Real easy recipes that we present all the time right here on our YouTube channel and straight from our kitchen I hope you give these delicious chicken meatballs in slow simmered marinara over zucchini noodles a try and I hope that you love them and Until next time I'll see ya
