Low-Carb Chicken Pesto Meatballs

Step 1 Preheat oven to 190 °C/ 375 °F (conventional), or 170 °C/ 340 °F (fan assisted), unless you cook them in a pan. Place the chicken, egg, almond flour, 1/4 cup pesto, chopped onion and salt in a large bowl and mix to combine.

Step 2 Roll the mixture into 16 balls and place on a baking sheet.

Step 3Bake for about 20 minutes or until golden and cooked through. Alternatively, cook the meatballs in a hot, lightly greased pan for 2-3 minutes per side, until browned and cooked through. Do not turn too soon or they will crumble (don't turn until a crust develops on the outside).

Step 4Top with the remaining 1/4 cup pesto to serve. Eat with fresh green salad, cauli-rice or roasted vegetables. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.
