Ingredients

  • 1 pound ground chicken
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup Italian Panko bread crumbs
  • 1 cup freshly grated parmesan cheese don't use the canned stuff
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 tablespoon dried basil
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh parsley + extra for topping
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried rosemary
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with foil or parchment paper, and set aside.

  2. Mix all ingredients into a large bowl, using your hands mix until just combined. Handling the meat too much will cause it to become hard when cooked.

  3. Create small meatballs by using a 1/4th measuring cup, and halving it. You'll get two meatballs per 1/4th cup. Bake meatballs for 20 to 22 minutes, or until no longer pink.

  4. Pour your sauce into an oven safe pan, and nestle the meatballs all around the house. (No I do not heat the sauce before placing them in) Top with the shredded mozzarella, and place in the 350 degree oven. Heat until the cheese melts, about 5 or 6 minutes. Top with freshly chopped parsley, if desired. Serve on top of your favorite pasta.
