Stuffing Chicken Meatball Bites
My husband raved about these meatball bites! He is a huge stuffing fan, and I may or may not love the flavourful carbs as well. The best part about using stuffing mix is it means that you need fewer ingredients. The stuffing mix is already seasoned, so you don’t have to do much more than adding it to the chicken meatballs.

Like all meatballs, make them small for a delicious appetizer or serve with a few sides for a full meal. The options are endless with meatballs and that’s why I love them!

Randa’s Tip: I’ve made this recipe twice now, both times I used the same amount of stuffing. One batch was dry, one batch was perfect. Here’s my tip: add the ground up stuffing 1/2 cup at a time and see how it comes together. I have 1lb ground chicken in the recipe but at our grocery stores here it never equals exactly one pound, so that could be why.
