Chicken Parmesan Meatballs Are An Easy 30 Minute Meal!

You are absolutely going to LOVE these Chicken Parmesan Meatballs! Not only are they delicious, they’re browned and baked in a skillet, and done in 30 minutes! This is a one pan skillet recipe that your whole family will love!

Your Favorite Comfort Food Made Easy!

Of course I love traditional Chicken Parmesan. It’s a classic recipe that I love ordering when we go out to an Italian restaurant. Making it at home is pretty easy too, but frying chicken cutlets isn’t always my favorite thing to do.

Making the meatball version cuts down on the time that you are standing over a skillet, which is a nice option on a busy weeknight! Plus, you can prep this ahead by making the meatballs in advance, so everything is ready to go at dinnertime!

Instructions:

  1. Make the Meatballs: Combine the ground chicken, 1/2 cup bread crumbs, Parmesan, parsley, garlic, egg, salt, and pepper. Mix until fully combined, then form into meatballs 1 1/2- inches in diameter. Place the remaining breadcrumbs in a small bowl. Roll the meatballs in the remaining breadcrumbs.
  2. Brown the Meatballs: In a large oven-safe skillet, like cast iron, heat some of the olive oil over medium heat. Add the meatballs and brown each side, 5 minutes. Transfer to a plate. Add more olive oil if needed to the pan.
  3. Simmer: Reduce the heat on the skillet to medium-low and spread the marinara sauce evenly into the skillet. Bring the sauce to a simmer and return the meatballs to the skillet.
  4. Bake: Top the meatballs with the mozzarella and bake for 10 – 15 minutes, or until the internal temperature of the meatballs is 165°F.

How To Serve Chicken Parmesan Meatballs:

We like to serve these over pasta. It’s an easy and filling option that makes the meatballs “go a little farther”. But if you’re looking for a lighter option, you can serve these on their own or with a side salad or green vegetable.

How To Store:

Store these airtight in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. You can also freeze them for up to 30 days!

Just made it this evening. Was liked by all but felt a little too salty. Will eliminate for next time – but there will be a next time.
