❤️ Why You’ll Love Greek Meatballs

  • Easy: A sheet pan meal is meant to be simple and this is just that. Prep it, throw it all on a sheet pan, and cook
  • Healthy: This meal has healthy protein and veggies, plus it’s full of flavor
  • Less Dishes: What I love MOST about a sheet pan meal is that you have fewer dishes to wash at the end of it

🍲 Ingredients

Mint & Herbs – What makes these meatballs Greek is adding the herbs to pump up the flavor. The mint adds freshness, and the oregano is a go-to in this Greek mama’s kitchen for all things Greek

Lemon – I LOVE lemon potatoes. Adding fresh lemon juice to your potato recipes is a great way to amp up the flavor, giving it a pop of freshness

Chicken – By using chicken in these Greek Meatballs, you have a lean source of protein that will keep you full, and help build a strong, healthy body

👩‍🍳 How to Make Greek Meatballs

  1. Preheat the oven to 375F. To a large baking dish add the potato pieces and smashed garlic cloves.
  2. Make the Greek lemon sauce by whisking together the lemon juice, olive oil, mustard, salt, pepper, dried oregano and garlic powder. Add half of the sauce to the baking dish, toss with the potatoes and then add 1/2 cup water to the baking dish too. Bake for 40 mins.
  3. While the potatoes are baking, make the meatballs. Mix together all the meatball ingredients in a bowl and then once combined, scoop about 2 tbsp at a time and form into meatballs.
  4. After 40 minutes, take the potatoes out of the oven and place the meatballs into the baking dish, nestled in between the potatoes. Drizzle the other half of the lemon sauce over the meatballs. Sprinkle the 1 cup of cubed feta throughout the baking dish. Bake for 18-20 more minutes or until the meatballs are cooked through to 165F.
  5. Serve with fresh halved cherry tomatoes and fresh mint.

👝 How to Store Leftovers

Store leftovers in a container in the fridge for up to 4 days. You can also freeze the meatballs (potatoes don’t freeze great) to easily take out and reheat.

🤔 Common Questions

Why do people soak breadcrumbs for meatballs?

This can be a quick trick to make sure your meatballs maintain moisture. You can soak them in warm water for a few minutes or milk.

What happens if my meatballs are falling apart?

You may need to add a little more moisture to your balls. For this recipe you can add a bit more egg or a splash of olive oil. Start small first!

Out of this world delicious! I doubled the meatball portion so we would have leftovers and that didn’t pan out because my boys just kept eating them.
I didn’t think you could top the lemon chicken thighs, but you’ve outdone yourself with this one!
