Chicken Parm Meatballs

We love chicken parmesan and we love meatballs so I created a Chicken Parmesan Meatball this week! Grating the onion gives them extra moisture. These are huge! You can make 4 or 6 of these, totally up top you. 

I love the microwaveable cauliflower mashed potatoes and we sauteed some carrots we had in the fridge to go along with the meatballs.

I actually made these ahead of time so all I had to do was pop them in the oven to finish. Our house is a bit of a mess right now since the downstairs is getting painted. Nothing is where it's supposed to be! 


  • 1 lb ground chicken
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 egg
  • 1 small onion, grated
  • 2 tbsp chopped parsley and basil
  • 3/4 cup of locatelli or parmesan cheese
  • 3/4 cup panko breadcrumbs
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • salt and pepper
  • 2 mozzarella sticks, cut in half
  • 1 small ball fresh mozzarella
  • marinara sauce

For the breading: 

  • 1 egg, beaten
  • flour
  • panko breadcrumbs


  1. Mix the ground chicken, garlic, egg, onion, parsley, basil, cheese, breadcrumbs, paprika, salt and pepper. 
  2. Form them into 4 equal balls and push 1 half of a mozzarella stick inside and then form the meatball around the cheese. 
  3. Set up your breading station with the flour, egg then panko. Lightly roll each meatball into the flour, then egg and finally the panko. 
  4. In a non-stick fry pan, drizzle in some olive oil, fry the meatballs until browned on all side. 
  5. Place them in a casserole dish. Bake in a 400 degree oven for 15 minutes, then place a piece of fresh mozzarella on top then a dollop of marinara. 
  6. Pop them back in the oven for another 15 minutes or until the cheese melts on top. 
  7. Garnish with some chopped basil. 

Makes 4 or 6 servings. Enjoy!!!
