Chicken Parm Meatballs

Chicken Parm Meatballs

Tonight's dinner was absolutely amazing, courtesy of these amazing chicken parm meatballs. I have been seeing a few recipes floating around Facebook and Pinterest. But honestly I am so horrible at following super long, labor intensive recipes, so I decided to wing it. I mean I am a mother of two, I do not have the time or patience to follow elaborate recipes so here is my version of these: 

Ingredients:

  • 1 pound ground chicken
  • 2 tbs olive oil
  • 2 1/2 cups Italian seasoned breadcrumbs 
  • 1 8oz mozzarella ball
  • 1 tbs garlic salt
  • 1 tbs garlic powder
  • 1/2 tbs Italian seasoning 
  • 1 bottle of your favorite pasta sauce

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven 425 degrees
  2. Cut mozzarella ball into cubes, approximately 15 cubes ( I was able to make 15 meatballs out of the pound of ground chicken).
  3. In a bowl combine ground chicken, 1/2 cup breadcrumbs, 1 tbs garlic salt, 1 tbs garlic powder, 1/2 tsp Italian seasoning.
  4. Mix thoroughly and begin to roll mixture into balls, once rolled insert a cube of cheese through the middle and roll some more.
  5. In a separate bowl with breadcrumbs, roll and bread meatballs until completely coated.
  6. In a pan with olive oil, brown all sides of meatballs. 
  7. Pour sauce in a baking pan, add meatballs to it.
  8. Bake for 20 mins at 425 degree.
  9. ENJOY!
