As we have mentioned before, we have learned a lot from our Mom about cooking. Our Mom makes a lot of things exceptionally well but one thing that stands out and always seems to come up as one of her all time best is the meatballs that she makes. With this being said, it just seemed right to create our own meatball recipe.
In an attempt not to compete with our Mom's meatballs (as we don't think it would be much of a competition) we added a few twists to our recipe. These meatballs are made with ground chicken, are coated in our own homemade red sauce, and topped with a slice of melted fresh mozzarella.
For starters, these chicken parm meatballs are the perfect size. They're big enough that they're not bite size, because let's be honest when they're that small we just end up eating closer to ten than a few... but they aren't too big either.
Plus they are chicken parm meaning you get that classic, cozy spaghetti (and when I say spaghetti I really mean angel hair) and meatballs dinner but with an Italian touch. Still giving you all your favorite warm winter dinner vibes, while still being a meal that is new and exciting that feels just a little special for a December weekend for two or for the whole family!
Okay, so getting down to the steps of this recipe- it's super simple and easy. These chicken meatballs are made up of 1 pound of ground chicken and then some mix ins to make them both herby and delicious...
While the meatballs are in the oven, it is the perfect opportunity to make your pomodoro sauce! Sauté away to achieve this not too smooth but not too chunky red sauce. It's one of my personal favorites. After baking, these chicken meatballs achieve the perfect golden brown on the outside. I always like to just double check the internal temperature of them, ensuring that they have reached 165 degrees.
Then it's all about plating. Add some red sauce to the base of your serving dish. Then transfer 2-3 meatballs to the dish and sprinkle with some fresh basil if desired. I highly suggest serving these meatballs with some angel hair as well and enjoy!
