Italian Style Chicken Meatballs

Perfectly tender chicken meatballs with an Italian flare! Easy to prep and let simmer, this is a definite crowd-pleasing meal.

Ingredients

  • 1 lb ground chicken
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup parmesan cheese
  • 1/3 cup breadcrumbs
  • 1 1/2 tbsp garlic powder
  • 1 1/2 tbsp dried basil
  • 1 1/2 tbsp dried oregano
  • salt
  • pepper

Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 375º. Mix the egg, breadcrumbs, parmesan, seasonings, and ground chicken together in a bowl until fully combined. The balls should be sticky but form a solid circle approximately the size of your palm. This mixture should form 14 meatballs.
  2. Spray some non-stick oil spray onto a aluminum foil lined baking sheet. Place each meatball on the sheet with space in between.
  3. Bake for 30 minutes. In the meantime, begin to heat your marinara of choice.
  4. Once the meatballs are done baking, add them to the sauce and simmer for another hour. Serve with choice of side, a little parsley as garnish, and a dash of parmesan cheese.
