Keto-Friendly Ricotta Chicken Meatballs Recipe FTW
Meatballs are just the best all-around: They’re easy to assemble and cook without fail, and they make a mean meal prep starter. Not to mention, they’re endlessly satisfying and the purest form of comfort food around. However, the traditional breadcrumb binder renders them off limits if you’re trying to cut gluten out for one reason or another (talking to you, keto dieters!). Sure, many gluten-free or breadcrumb-free meatball recipes exist on the interwebs, but we challenge you to find one that results in light, fluffy, tender chickenmeatballs like these game-changers. The secret ingredient? Almond flour!
Recipe Notes: Serve these naked, with a cream-based or a tomato-based sauce alongside zucchini noodles, a roasted vegetable, or a gluten-free pasta if your diet permits. Always garnish meatballs with more ricotta no matter how you serve them, because ricotta makes everything tastier.
