Breakfast-Chicken Meatballs

These can also be cooked as sausage patties.

  • 2 lb ground chicken
  • 1 tsp sage (ground) or 2 tsp sage (leaves)
  • 1 tsp all-spice
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp marjoram (ground) or 1 tsp marjoram (leaves)
  • pinch of thyme leaves
  • 2 tsp kosher salt
  • 1 T maple syrup
  • 1 T olive oil
  • 1 – 32 oz carton of chicken broth

  1. Pour broth into pot and heat to a boil.
  2. Combine everything else.
  3. When broth has come to a boil, use a disher (small ice cream scoop) to scoop meatballs into broth.
  4. Simmer for 10 minutes, occasionally stirring to make sure all meatballs are equally cooked.

*Look for “ground chicken,” not “ground chicken breast.”  The ground breast is too lean and dry.
