We can all agree that traditional chicken piccata is delicious. Nevertheless, today, Cook It would like to invite you to make a new and different version! Enter chicken piccata meatballs. Featuring everything we love about the classic — juicy chicken, capers, butter, bright lemon, and sweet garlic — this meatball version is a fantastic alternative that you can eat with a toothpick.

What’s even better is that this recipe is super easy. Combine all the ingredients before adding ground meat, mix until just combined, and form meatballs. Sear them for a few minutes in a skillet until golden-brown on the outside, then set them aside and start on the lemon butter sauce. Finally, finish cooking the meat in the sauce as it simmers. Voilà, your chicken piccata meatballs are ready to eat!

Culinary art means everything to me. My main hypostasis is the taster, though. The music school has taught me to appreciate the symphony of airy meringues, to create harmonious overtures of light snacks, hard rock of meat, fish, and vegetables on the grill. Choir classes have accustomed me to hear and feel the people nearby and create perfect harmonies of sounds.
