Baked Chicken Meatballs with Garlicky Honey Mustard Sauce

  • Author: Ruthy Kirwan



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
  • 45 garlic cloves (, minced)
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil


Make the meatballs:

  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.


  1. While the meatballs are baking, make the sauce. In a medium sized saucepan, whisk all the sauce ingredients together over medium heat until combined. Bring to a simmer, then turn the heat down to low. 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.
  2. When the meatballs have finished cooking, add them to the sauce and toss gently to coat.
