Baked Chicken Parmesan Meatballs

 

Chicken parmesan meatballs are the perfect party finger food.  These meatballs are full of all the flavors you find in regular chicken parmesan but are so much easier to make.  Who doesn’t like finger food?  In our house, we are all about appetizer finger foods.  We like to choose a movie and chow down on single bite goodies.

That’s it! Little nuggets chock full of Italian flavors.  Just heat a jar of store bought marinara sauce and serve on the side for dipping.  Or you can throw the meatballs in the sauce and toss to coat. Your choice. I’m telling you baked chicken parmesan meatballs will be the hit of the party.

We served it on the side so everyone could choose if they wanted sauce or not.  These chicken parmesan meatballs do not require any sauce.  They are so delicious they stand on their own.  You are going to want to double this recipe.  Especially if you want any for yourself.

Serves: 32 meatballs
Ingredients
  • 2 lbs ground chicken breast
  • ¾ cup Italian breadcrumbs
  • ¾ cup fresh grated parmesan cheese
  • 2 garlic cloves, pressed
  • ¼ cup onion, minced
  • 2 tablespoons dried Italian seasoning
  • 1½ teaspoons ground fennel seed
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • ½ teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • 1 24oz jar marinara sauce
  • chopped basil and grated parmesan for garnish (if desired)
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Prepare a baking sheet by lining with aluminum foil or parchment paper.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine all listed ingredients except the marinara sauce. Mix well, do not over mix or you will have tough meatballs.
  3. Using a 1 tablespoon scoop, portion out meat mixture, roll into balls and place on baking sheet. Bake for 15-18 minutes until lightly browned.
  4. Heat marinara sauce and serve on the side.
Notes
I ground the fennel seeds in a coffee grinder that I use only for spices.
