Chicken, Apple, Cheddar Crockpot Meatballs

You won’t believe how delicious these are. They’re good hot out of the crock. They’re good cold the next morning. They’re just good. I will be making more of these this week because I know the current batch won’t make it through to Friday.

Chicken, Apple, Cheddar Crockpot Meatballs
adapted from the original here

2 pounds extra lean ground chicken breast
1 egg
1 tsp kosher salt
1 1/2 tsp ground black pepper
2 tsp onion powder
1 large or 1 1/2 medium green apples, peeled and shredded
1 cup shredded fat free cheddar cheese

In a large mixing bowl, hand mix the ground chicken with the rest of the ingredients.

Form meatballs (I make eight meatballs per pound of ground meat, making each serving 4 ounces / 2 meatballs), and drop them into your crockpot. Cover and cook on high for 4-5 hours, or on low for 5-9—the cooking time will depend on how many meatballs are in the crock, and the size of your machine. The more full it is, the longer it will take to cook. Mine went 4 1/2 hours.

Amyella (pronounced Amy-ella) is a pseudonym for Amy Levitt, a fitness and health food fanatic and a beach girl at heart. She has been sharing her sometimes nonsensical thoughts and self-amusing stories online since 2002 and currently spends a good deal of her time wrangling her 90 pound Rottweiler and 60 pound Boxer. Which is quite a show.
The origin of the name Amyella.

Here's my deal. It's wicked exciting!
