gluten free weetbix chicken meatballs 

Chicken and Gluten Free Weet-Bix for a quick and easy dinner

Busy afternoons with kids sports mean i need to feed three hungry kids quickly when we get home.  I want something that cooks fast, is a good source of protein and omega 3 and ofcourse they will eat it!

This quick dinner has all the above and is gluten, dairy and egg free.

Gluten Free Weet-Bix and Chicken Meatballs

Ingredients

500gms Lean Chicken Mince

1 cup grated Zucchini

3 tablespoons Pesto (i used homemade but any quality pesto will do)

1 tablespoon Chia Seeds

2 crushed gluten free Weet-Bix

extra

3 finely crushed gluten free Weet-Bix for coating

 

Method

  • In a large bowl mix together all the ingredients except the crushed weetbix for coating.
  • I find it easier just to use my hands this ensures its all mixed well.
  • Roll all the mixture into balls, just larger than a tablespoon size.  You should get approx 18. (You can make them larger, just adjust the cooking time.)
  • Once done roll the meatballs through the crushed Gluten Free Weet-Bix for coating. Pressing down a little to ensure it sticks.
  • Cook in a medium heat frying pan in a little oil 10 - 12 minutes each side.  The Gluten Free Weet-Bix are a little darker in colour so make sure the chicken is cooked.

Serve with Salad or Vegies on even on pasta or a burger.  I served mine here on simple green salad with some lemon zest and a squeeze of lemon.

 

note: You could cook these in the oven or on the bbq. They are really versatile and if you have any left overs, they make a nice lunchbox snack.

Recipe can easily be doubled.
