Chicken Meatball Soup Recipe with step by step pictures. Delicious and hearty soup made with chicken meatballs which taste absolutely delicious.
Last Night we thought of making some soup for dinner, since hubby had a little cough. So i thought to making a warm chicken soup for him. I ran out of chicken pieces, but had only some burger mix which made few days back and freeze it. So decided to make meatball soup with it and infuse lots of ginger and garlic in it. So i made a little medicinal kind of soup, and added lots of pepper in it. It was so filling and satisfying.
I took the mince mixture and shaped into mini meatballs. I seared them in a tsp of oil and cooked them completely. Then i dropped them in the soup. I didn't have any veggies on hand, so i added only some carrots. If you want you can add lots of veggies in this too or make it very clear soup neglecting them.
About this Recipe
A meatball is a ball of ground meat rolled with other ingredients such as bread crumbs, minced onion, eggs, butter, and seasoning. Meatballs are cooked in sauce by frying, baking, steaming, or braising. Meatballs can be made with a variety of different meats and spices. The term is sometimes used to refer to meatless versions made from vegetables or fish, which are also known as fishballs.
What are chicken meatballs made of?
In a large mixing bowl, combine ground chicken, eggs, breadcrumbs, Parmesan cheese, olive oil, and seasonings. Mix everything thoroughly, then roll the mixture into 1 inch balls. Place the uncooked meatballs on a sheet pan lined with foil and bake for 20 minutes.
Who invented the meatball?
Unfortunately, no one knows who invented meatballs. Although the origins of meatballs are unknown, they are thought to have originated from kofta, a Persian dish consisting of a mixture of meats and either rice, bulgur, or mashed lentils.
Ingredients for Chicken Meatball Soup
Chicken mince, also known as minced chicken, is a type of ground chicken. Its a finely chopped chicken cut thats a leaner alternative to beef mince. Skinless boneless chicken thighs or breasts, or a combination of the two, are commonly used in its preparation.
Onions are considered a basic ingredient or the foundation of Indian cooking and are used to make any gravy, curry, or bhuna dish. The flavour and aroma of onion transforms any ordinary dish into a mouthwatering and delectable one.
Dry breadcrumbs are commonly used as a topping for gratins, casseroles, and other similar dishes to add a crunchy textural dimension. Fresh breadcrumbs are an excellent binding agent, which is why they are frequently used in meatloaf and stuffing recipes.
