How to make air fryer chicken meatballs recipe

  1. First, finely chop the garlic and parsley.
  2. In a bowl, combine the minced chicken, the egg, the freshly prepared aromatic mixture, a pinch of salt and pepper and the parmesan. Mix well with a spoon to distribute all the flavors.
  3. Then add enough grated bread to dry the mixture a little and let it rest for 20 minutes . This way the bread will absorb the excess moisture and you will know exactly if you need to add more.
  4. Then form meatballs the size of a walnut and roll them in your hands. As they are ready, place them in the air fryer basket.
  5. Then spray them with the appropriate spray oil and cook them at 180°C for 20 minutes. We recommend enjoying them hot or slightly warmed.
