How do you know when Chicken Meatballs are done?

Chicken Meatballs are done when they are 160 degrees inside. You can check this by using a simple meat thermometer. Meat thermometers are cheap, so they are well worth it to purchase one for all of your cooking needs.  If you don’t have one, simply cut one of your meatballs open and make sure it is not pink. All ovens are a bit different so it’s best to check. Your meatballs may need 5 more mins.

Be careful not to over cook your chicken meatballs. They can become dried out quickly. So if you know your oven cooks hot. pull them out and check them sooner than later. Meatballs actually cook pretty quickly.
