For the Chicken Meatballs

  • 1 pound (16 ounces) ground chicken or ground turkey
  • ½ cup unseasoned breadcrumbs
  • ¼ cup crumbled feta cheese
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 tablespoons milk of choice
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh dill
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon onion powder
  • ½ teaspoon dried oregano
  • ¼ teaspoon kosher salt
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper

For the Tzatziki Sauce

  • ½ cup finely grated cucumber
  • 1 cup plain whole milk greek yogurt
  • 1 tablespoon fresh squeezed lemon juice (about ½ a lemon)
  • ½ tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 garlic clove, grated
  • ¼ teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh dill


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Prepare a baking sheet by lining it with parchment paper.
  • In a large bowl, add all the chicken meatball ingredients. Mix to combine.
  • Scoop 2 tablespoons of the meatball mixture and form it into a ball. Place the meatball on the prepared baking sheet. Repeat with the rest of the meatball mix until there is none remaining. I made about 12 meatballs.
  • Bake meatballs for 15 to 20 minutes, or until the internal temperature reaches 165 degrees F.
  • To make tzatziki sauce: Shred cucumber over a double-lined paper towel. Allow paper towel to soak up moisture as you prepare the rest of the sauce. In a small bowl, combine greek yogurt, lemon juice, olive oil, grated garlic, salt, and dill. Add cucumber to the bowl and stir until evenly distributed throughout the sauce.
  • Serve meatballs drizzled with tzatziki sauce on a bed of rice pilaf and a side of Jerusalem salad.


  1. If you don't have fresh dill, you can use ½ a teaspoon of dried dill in both the meatballs and the sauce. However, fresh dill is HIGHLY recommended.
  2. If you don't like cucumber, you can make lemon dill yogurt sauce instead of the tzatziki sauce.
