  • 1 pound ground chicken
  • 1/2 tablespoon Italian seasoning
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 2 green onions chopped
  • 1 1/2 cups riced cauliflower (if using frozen, defrost first and drain off extra liquid)
  • 1/2 - 3/4 teaspoon sea salt or to taste
  • black pepper to taste


  • Preheat your oven to 400 degrees F.
  • Combine all ingredients in a large bowl.
  • Time to get messy! Using your (freshly washed) hands, mix the ingredients until everything is well blended.
  • Gently roll the meat into golfball size portions. Arrange the meatballs in a single layer in a large baking dish. Note: Using a baking dish or a baking sheet with a lip is important, as the vegetables will give off some liquid during the cooking process.
  • Bake for 25-30 minutes or until meat is cooked through.
  • Enjoy warm on their own, with 30-Minute Veggie-Loaded Tomato Sauce over zoodles, over a salad, your favorite pasta or save fore later! Store leftovers in fridge for up to 5 days or in freezer for a month.


You can use whatever ground meat you prefer! I have made this recipe with ground beef, ground turkey and ground chicken! It’s delightful and delicious no matter what your meat base!
