Step 1:

Start by getting your ground chicken into a bowl with the eggs.

Step 2:

Chop your basil and add it to the mix of meat and eggs, along with salt, pepper, and oats.

Step 3:

Mix well until combined. If the mix seems too wet or loose, feel free to add another spoonful of oats or breadcrumbs.

Step 4:

Heat up a nonstick frying pan (or your favorite pan with a bit of olive oil or coconut oil) drop spoonfuls of the mixture into the pan.

Step 5:

After the bottom and sides have cooked and you can see the meat change from pink to greyish to golden brown, flip them and smash down a bit with your spatula to help with the smashed shape.

Step 6:

Once both sides are cooked and you're confident the middle is cooked through, remove from heat and plate up. Then start cooking the next few meatballs.

Step 7:

Sometimes the most important ingredients don't go in the pan, know what I mean?

Step 8:

Once all your meatballs are cooked, set aside the ones you want to eat for now. Allow the rest to cool a bit and store them in a container in your fridge or freezer.
