Baked Chicken Meatballs with Garlicky Honey Mustard Sauce

Try these easy baked chicken meatballs tossed in a garlicky honey mustard sauce for an easy dinner recipe tonight!

Some of you may be familiar with the fact that I am on the constant hunt for foods that are:

  1. quick
  2. easy
  3. kid-approved

These babies (as in, these baked chicken meatballs) fit every step of my criteria above.


For the meatballs:

1 lb ground chicken

1 tablespoon dried oregano

1 teaspoon salt

1/2 cup plain breadcrumbs

1 egg

½ cup milk

For the sauce:

1/2 cup honey

2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar

⅓ cup creamy dijon mustard

4-5 garlic cloves, minced

1 tablespoon olive oil


  1. Preheat the oven to 350*F.
  2. Combine all the meatball ingredients in a large bowl and mix until thoroughly combined.
  3. Using a spoon or a small dough scooper, scoop the meatballs into balls about 2-3” around. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or aluminum foil and place the balls on the sheet, spacing evenly. Bake for 15-18 minutes or until cooked through and browned underneath.
  4. While the meatballs are baking, make the sauce. In a medium-sized saucepan, whisk all the sauce ingredients together over medium heat until combined.
  5. Bring to a simmer, then turn the heat down to low.
  6. Cook, stirring often, about 10-12 minutes or until the sugars in the sauce brown, and the sauce is reduced enough to thickly coat the back of a spoon.
  7. When the meatballs have finished cooking, add them to the sauce and toss gently to coat.
