Low Carb Chicken Meatballs
I’ve been debating what to do with this ground chicken I had sitting around. The last time I made I very yummy chicken and rice dish (NOT low carb but tasty) but it used a hundred different pots so I was not going to try to recreate that. I decided to try some Asian-style Low Carb Chicken Meatballs instead and I’m glad I did. Not only were they super easy, they’re also tasty, and low-carb, and I need to cut carbs these days.
Have you tried my Coconut Tomato Soup? It’s amazing and a reader favorite!

I’m sure you could make these without the unsweetened coconut if you wanted, but the mixture was sticky so I wanted to add a little something to stiffen it. But once I decided to use a scoop, then the consistency didn’t really matter. The coconut makes it taste good, but I don’t think it’s essential.
