Chicken Parmesan Meatballs
 
Serves: About 20 meatballs
 
Ingredients
  • 2 large chicken breasts, cut into cubes
  • ¾ cup Italian breadcrumbs
  • ¾ cup fresh grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 Tablespoon minced garlic
  • ½ cup diced yellow onion
  • ½ Tablespoon dried Italian seasoning
  • 2 Tablespoon fresh basil, chopped or 1 teaspoon dried
  • 2 Tablespoon fresh parsley, chopped or 1 teaspoon dried
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon fresh cracked black pepper
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • ½ cup marinara sauce
  • ¾ cup shredded mozzarella cheese

 

  1. Set the ½ cup marinara and graded mozzarella cheese aside, and combine all remaining ingredients in a large bowl. Mix until combined, but over-mixing will result in tougher meatballs.
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  3. Wet your hands slightly, it makes it easier to handle the meatballs and roll them smoothly. Use a tablespoon to scoop out the meat and roll them into a circle. Place them on a greased baking pan. I wet my hands very slightly in between each meatball.
  4. Bake for 16-18 minutes, until they are very lightly browned. Remove them from the oven and increase the oven temperature to a broil.
  5. Place the meatballs close together. Drizzle with marinara sauce and sprinkle with mozzarella cheese.

Bake in the oven for 2-3 minutes, until the top is golden brown. Enjoy!
