Recipe of the Week: Chicken Meatballs

    A long time ago, chicken meatballs were regularly available in grocery stores. Now, not so much. I checked over 5 stores and no one had them; not even Costco! After searching Google and asking around, I have mastered a recipe that is quick and easy enough to make for dinner on weekdays and goes perfectly with spaghetti!

Here’s what you need:

  • 1 lbs. ground chicken
  • 1 cup Italian breadcrumbs
  • 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Here’s what you do:

  • Mix Italian breadcrumbs, Parmesan cheese, salt and pepper into ground chicken, cover and refrigerate for 1/2 hour
  • Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees Celsius
  • Remove from refrigerator and shape into small balls and place on parchment-lined cookie sheet
  • Bake for 20 minutes, turn and then bake for another 20 minutes or until golden and cooked all the way through
  • Remove from oven and let cool for 5 minutes
  • Heat pasta sauce in pan on stove and add meatballs and spaghetti 
  • Cook for 1-3 minutes and serve with garlic bread, cheesy asparagus and a glass of wine!

How easy was that? The second time I made them, I added some fresh chopped garlic and green onions to the mixture and then cooked them. They turned out amazing and were so tasty, D ate so many without the sauce and spaghetti. Try them out and let me know what you think!
