How to Store Chicken Meatballs
One more thing before I go: learning how to store meatballs is a trick that every cook should know. It’s amazing how easily you can prepare the chicken mixture in advance, freeze it, and bake them only if you want fresh meatballs. So, let’s learn together everything there is to know about storing meatballs.
Once you have baked your chicken meatballs and have some leftovers, put them in an airtight container and store them in the fridge for up to 3 days. Also, warm leftover refrigerated meatballs in a 350-degree F oven until heated through and steaming.
On the other hand, if you want to store some uncooked meatballs in order to bake them later, follow the next steps freshly:
- Prepare the meatballs mixture as in the recipe.
- Then, arrange on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and freeze until the meatballs are firm (about 1 to 2 hours).
- Transfer the frozen chicken meatballs to a zip top bag.
- Squish out as much air as possible and seal.
- Store in the refrigerator for up to 3 months.
First of all, preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Line a baking sheet with baking paper and a little cooking spray (optional).
Mix all the ingredients together in a mixing bowl (clean your hands and use them for this step).
Now, roll the mixture into about 30 small balls. Place them on baking sheet.
Next, bake them for 25-30 minutes.
Enjoy them with your favorites sauces.
