Directions

While the oven preheats to 450 degrees Fahrenheit, make sure to cover the bottom of your baking dish completely in vegetable oil. Fill a small pot with water and bring it to a simmer, adding the spinach and cooking it until it has wilted -- around 1-2 minutes. Then, drain the water and chop the spinach into smaller pieces.

In a large bowl, mix the rest of the ingredients -- the feta, chicken, spinach, breadcrumbs, egg, garlic, salt, pepper, and oregano -- until they are just combined. Take this mixture and roll it into 10-12 balls that are around the same size. If the balls are falling apart or feel too wet to hold their shape, don’t be afraid to add more breadcrumbs to help keep them together!

When all the balls are completed, place them in the baking dish and bake them until they’re browned and cooked through, around 15-20 minutes.
