Cheesy Tomato Chicken Meatballs


January 18, 2016

  • Prep: 20 mins
  • Cook: 4 hrs
  • Yields: 4 servings


1 tin tomato soup

1/2 diced onion

500gr chicken mince

1 egg

breadcrumbs (as needed until combined)

spices (paprika, pepper, chili) 1/2 tsp each

fresh parsley

baby bocconcini


1Mix chicken mince by hand until it forms a paste.

2Add in spices, egg and mix again.

3Add in enough breadcrumbs to form patties without falling apart (usually 1/2 cup but more for wetter mince).

4Grab a ball of mince mix and push a small bocconcini into the middle, and reform the mince around it to form a ball.

5Roll them around in your hand until the cheese is covered.

6Add tomato soup and onions into slow cooker.

7Place chicken balls into soup mix.

8Cook on high for 4hrs or until chicken is cooked.


1If you have a larger slow cooker or are wanting to double the recipe, add in another tin of tomato soup or a cup of water.

2This recipe has been tried with coles brand tomato soup and aldi brand with successful results.

3Serve with vegetables or mashed potato.

I accidently bought normal size bocconcini so had to cut them in quarters. I also added garlic with the tomato soup and used two tins instead of one as there was not much liquid. Looked to be a bit high and started to stick so after an hour on HIGH I turned the slow cooker to LOW for another 2 1/2 hours instead of 4 hours on high. Was nice I had mine with spaghetti and my husband had vegetables.

Must say I did enjoy the flavors but using baby bocconcini I just couldn’t taste it. Will try again maybe using a differant cheese 😃

I really enjoyed this for dinner tonight. I used cayenne pepper instead of chilli. Being first time making this I made larger meatballs as I wasn’t sure if they would stay together – they did! – perfectly. Going to try making smaller ones next time. Definitely be having this again and may also try it with a different type of cheese. Served with spaghetti this time – would also be great with mash.
