Chicken Meatballs with Feta and Pesto

Well, it is not really meatballs. They are cutlets of 1qite normal size, but with spherical shape. They are prepared the way I like – a big batch in the oven. No frying pan, no extra oil and lost shape. In principle, you can form them in the form of cutlets – oblong. Here the form will not play the role. Garnish is your choice. Chicken is a universal product and combines a lot with lots of products.
