Chicken Parmesan Meatballs
A couple of weeks ago, when I made meatballs stroganoff, I mentioned that I consider meatballs an easy to make dinner. It's probably because of that reason that I like experimenting with different flavors and ideas. So, if I can turn a stroganoff into a meatball, why not a chicken parm?
1 lb. Ground chicken breast
1 Onion, finely diced
4 Cloves garlic, minced
3/4 Cup seasoned panko breadcrumbs, divided
1/4 Cup chopped parsley
1/4 Cup Parmesan, grated
Salt & pepper to taste
1 Cup mozzarella cheese, shredded
2 Pints of your favorite tomato sauce
Add the tomato sauce to a large pot on the stove and bring to a low simmer. Add the meatballs, cover and leave on low for 30 minutes. When ready to serve transfer the meatballs to an oven safe dish, top with the mozzarella cheese and broil for a few minutes until the cheese has melted. Makes approximately 4 - 6 servings.
