Ingredients

  • 1 lb Ground Chicken
  • ½ Cup Breadcrumbs + 2 Tbsp more to coat
  • ½ Cup Grated Parmesan Cheese
  • 2 Medium Eggs
  • ½ Tbsp Italian Seasoning
  • 1 Can Crushed Tomatoes 28 ounces

  • In a large bowl, combine the ground chicken, breadcrumbs, parmesan, eggs, seasoning, salt, and pepper. Mix well until combined.
  • Scoop about 1 Tbsp of mixture and roll it between your palms to form a meatball. Repeat with the remaining mixture, then dredge each meatball into breadcrumbs. Set aside on a plate.
  • Heat 2 Tbsp oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add meatballs and sauté for 3-4 minutes, turning occasionally until browned but not cooked through. Set aside on a plate.
  • In the same skillet add garlic and cook until fragrant, for 1 minute. Add crushed tomatoes, Italian seasoning and season with salt and pepper to your taste.
  • Simmer for about 5 minutes, then return the meatballs into the skillet nestling them into the sauce.
