- 1. In a large bowl, combine the first six ingredients. Crumble chicken over mixture and mix well. Shape into 1-in. balls. Place on baking sheets coated with cooking spray.
Bake at 375° for 12-15 minutes or until a meat thermometer reads 165° and juices run clear, turning occasionally. Serve with salsa if desired.

Reviews for Mexican Chicken Meatballs
"My whole family loved these Meatballs"
"I think I'll put these in a green chili enchilada sauce."
"Absolutely delicious! I have made these meatballs with cornflakes and with gluten-free Rice Krispies. Delicious either way!"
"Very good! I made both a batch as the recipe was written and also a batch gluten free and substituted gluten free rice krispies for the corn flakes & they turned out great. Both my kids who are picky enjoyed them."
"These meatballs were really great! My whole family enjoyed them, and I didn't have any trouble getting any of the kids to eat them. They had a nice Mexican flavor but weren't spicy at all. It made a batch of about 40 meatballs on one large cookie sheet for me, and I served 4 per person. I made some Uncle Ben's Taco-Flavored Rice with it and steamed green beans. I think these will make a great appetizer for a Mexican Fiesta themed birthday party we have coming up."
"The best appetizer or delicious addition to any meal!"
"really, really good"

"Delicious - I substitute with ground turkey and add italian seasonings to suite our tastes. We fight over the leftovers!"
"I served these as an appy with red pepper jelly. Delicious!"
"These were so much better than I expected. Ground chicken can be so dry and bland, but these were moist and flavorful. I served them for dinner but they would be great anytime!"
"I made these for the first time yesterday to serve at a party. They were a big hit and I will definately make them again."
