Take the ingredients from a chicken parm recipe and turn it into easy-to-make ground chicken parmesan meatballs. Delicious!
These mini chicken parm meatballs are so cute, aren’t they? I don’t even normally like chicken parmesan but I definitely gobbled these bad boys right up. I have a really strange aversion to chicken paired with red sauce. I have always had this peculiar notion where I very strongly feel that chicken and red sauce should never go together. Chicken belongs with some sort of white sauce or a buttery wine sauce. Anyone else agree? No? I never ever ordered chicken parmesan at a restaurant and here I am making a version of it at home. Hooray for the new and adventurous me!
These meatballs would be a great appetizer at a dinner party or a pot luck but I made them for our main course one night and they were perfect paired up with my garlic smashed potatoes. Your guests will LOVE you for serving these at a party. These meatballs were moist, tender, and best of all – HEALTHY and more lean than most meatballs because they are made with ground chicken! Chicken parmesan ingredients converted into meatballs! It’s the best way to eat it, in my opinion.
You can even use ground turkey if you can’t find ground chicken at your grocery store or if you just prefer it (have you tried these delicious Asian turkey meatballs yet? Those are another favorite meatball recipe of mine). Oh, and if you stuff these babies inside a roll, then top them with some mozzarella cheese, and make meatball subs I don’t think you’d regret that decision…
Enjoy and have a great day!
