Chicken and Bacon Meatballs {Air fryer & Oven Directions}

Let me start by saying, my air fryer is amazing! Why didn’t anyone tell me how good they were? I wouldn’t have waited so long to get one. Since getting THIS ONE at Christmas, I’ve been using it daily and sometimes a few times a day.

Why I love it so much!

  • It cooks so fast!
  • No need for oil (healthy cooking)
  • Easy to wash and use
  • Even cooking
  • No need to preheat
  • CRISPY food

One of my favourite recipes to cook in the air fryer are these chicken and bacon meatballs. These meatballs can be served on skewers (I bought some half-sized skewers from the supermarket) with pasta, rice, salad or pop them in the school lunch box.

Makes around 12-15 meatballs depending on the size.
