I found your new favorite dinner recipe guys.

This is our family go-to right now for a few reasons! For starters, you can make it in less than 30 minutes making it an easy dinner to whip up with limited time. These healthy chicken meatballs also pair well with pretty much anything. You can toss them in your favorite sauce with pasta or enjoy with some roasted veggies over rice – whatever you want! And lastly I love that they sneak in zucchini and my 2 year old has zero clue they have veggies in them.

These zucchini chicken meatballs are also a freezer-friendly recipe to make. I love making a bunch and popping them in the freezer and defrosting a few hours before we need a quick dinner. And right now – I am all about the freezer meals and thinking ahead. Plus you can use any ground meat you want for these if chicken isn’t your thing. Feel free to use turkey too! We also love using turkey for them.

I hope you guys love this recipe as much as I do! I can’t wait to hear what you think.
