Chicken Crockpot Meatballs.

I started making these last summer. I prefer chicken meatballs to beef ones, but it's worth noting that Scott is not a fan. I usually make them, freeze them, and keep them on hand in case we need a quick  dinner. And then I'll *usually* eat them when he's away or working late.


I use 1 T. each of the dried herbs. And I would not recommend the Kraft brand of parmesan. It just happened to be on sale and I'd never had it before. I would go with Sargento. 

This is how I put it together. I don't measure, but it's about half a cup of cheese, and half a cup of each type of breadcrumbs.

Mix it up and form them into meatballs. Put them on a plate and stick them in fridge for about an hour (at least) to firm up. This keeps them together when they cook. 

I used a cast iron pan to brown the meatballs. Medium heat, 2-3 minutes on each side.

Then you pile them into a crockpot, pour a jar of sauce over the top (Newman's was on sale), and cook on low for about 8 hours. 

After they're cool, divide them up into freezer bags. You should label yours. I can never be bothered to do that and it never works out well. 

Store them in the freezer and pull out as needed to defrost in the fridge. I usually just heat them up in a saucepan and eat them with a mixture of spaghetti noodles and zoodles with mozzarella on top. 


  1. I really wish I liked meatballs - they had them as one of the meals last night at the hotel and someone asked how I could be human and not like them. I guess because I'm not a big spaghetti fan and that's usually where they get their start.

  2. i do this as well; such an easy recipe!!

  3. This reminds me to make some meatballs for the freezer.

  4. Yummy, we love meatballs. Never thought to cook enough for the freezer!

  5. If I can find bread crumbs without soy in them, I'm totally making these. I think I'll use ground turkey, though. I haven't used my spiralizer in a bit and I was just thinking I needed to pull it out!

  6. Anything involving the crockpot is a huge win for me! These looks so good.

  7. Meatballs are are the tastiest thing. My daughter likes it very much.
