  • 2 lbs. ground chicken
  • 1/2 onion finely chopped
  • 1 C. mangoes chopped small
  • 3 cloves of garlic minced
  • 1/3 C. cilantro chopped
  • 1 finely diced jalapeño* feel free to add more for additional heat
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 C. almond flour
  • 1 tbsp. chili powder
  • 2 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. cumin
  • 1/2 tsp. smoked paprika
  • 1/2 tsp. ground black pepper


  • Preheat oven to 375* F.
  • Lightly grease glass baking dishes (I needed two) with some olive oil to prevent sticking
  • Add all ingredients into a bowl and combine thoroughly
  • Once combined, form into balls about the size of a lemon. I personally like larger meatballs as they tend not to dry out as much, but that's just my opinion!
  • Arrange in baking dishes and bake for about 25 minutes
  • Check doneness at 20 minutes as ovens may vary
  • They should be golden brown on top and cooked through
