Sometimes we have fun. We go shopping. We hit the park. And for the first time, we also try out the swings.
Okay, only Ethan tried out a swing, but he liked it.
Other days, we don’t have fun. Hmpff. It happens. Just like when I was trying to cook these babies.
I made them for Kevin’s lunch this week, and he said they’re blog-approved. Maybe he was just being nice, but either way, they couldn’t be too bad. I mean, goat cheese people… goat cheese.
- 1 lb lean ground chicken (about 97% lean)
- ¼ cup skim milk
- ½ cup old fashioned oats
- 1 tsp dried basil
- 2 cloves garlic (minced)
- 1 egg
- 1 oz goat cheese
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees, and mix all ingredients *except goat cheese* in a bowl with your hands.
- Drop the balls onto a baking sheet. They seem too moist, but if you're using lean chicken, you'll need the moisture. This makes about 12-15 balls; I got 14.
- Cut the goat cheese into enough pieces to fill your balls. If the goat cheese crumbles when you cut it, just mush it together. Smoosh the cheese directly into the ball, and use your fingers to cover it with the chicken.
- Bake balls for 20-23 minutes. Goat cheese doesn't get as gooey, so it won't look very melted when you cut into the ball. Nevertheless, make sure chicken is cooked through.
As always, if you try them, let me know what you think!
- Are you a fan of goat cheese?
