Sounds good, go with olive oil for sure ...in my opinion

How did you season the meatballs? Olive oil would be my first choice but if the seasoning is Asian style then use vegetable oil.

They are chicken parm meatballs, seasoned with garlic, onions, parsley, breadcrumbs.

You could use either to brown/fry before aking. Olive oil has well a slight olive taste and vegetable oil has no discerning taste but a higher smoke point.
