    Preparation

    1. PREHEAT oven to 400°F. Add the red onion, garlic, egg white, Parmesan cheese, bread crumbs and seasonings to a large bowl, then stir with a fork to combine.

    2. ADD the ground chicken and mix until combined—do not overmix or meatballs will be tough. Divide the chicken mixture into quarters, then roll each quarter into 4 balls. Press a cube of feta into the center of each ball, then close mixture around cheese to seal.

    3. PLACE the meatballs onto a buttered cooling rack set on top of a baking sheet. Bake for 20 minutes.
