Not-Fried Chicken Cheese Balls

Not-Fried Chicken Cheese Balls
15 Min

Hosting a party? If so, then you've got to make our Not-Fried Chicken Cheese Balls! They feature the delicious trio of chicken, cheese, and bacon in an easy-to-eat form. Your guests will love taking a bite out of these (and you'll love how simple they are to make!).

What You'll Need

  • 1/2 cup Italian bread crumbs
  • 2 cups shredded cooked chicken
  • 4 slices crispy-cooked bacon, crumbled
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 1/2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
  • 2 eggs, beaten

What to Do

  1. In a shallow dish, place bread crumbs; set aside. In a large bowl, combine chicken, bacon, flour, onion powder, garlic powder, salt, pepper, cheese, and parsley; mix well. Stir in eggs until thoroughly combined. Form mixture into 1-inch balls, then roll in bread crumbs.
  2. Place chicken balls in a single layer in air fry basket (see Note). Set to 400 degrees F and cook 8 minutes or until golden. Repeat with remaining balls. Serve immediately. 


  • If you don't happen to have an air fryer - no worries! You can make this in your oven too. Just preheat your oven to 375 degrees F, and bake 15 to 20 minutes or until golden. 
  • We happen to think these Chicken Bacon Balls are extra-tasty when they're dipped into some ranch dressing. Yum!

These sound wonderful for Christmas appetizers. I need to make them the night before Christmas however. Is there any way these can be reheated and still be good?
