Chicken Parm Meatballs are a fun twist on the classic comfort food!


  • 1  pound ground chicken
  • 1 cups seasoned bread crumbs, divided
  • 1/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan
  • 2 tablespoons freshly chopped parsley
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 23 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 32- ounce jar marinara sauce
  • 1 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella


  1. Preheat the oven to 400ºF. In a large bowl, combine 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. In a large oven-safe skillet, heat 2 tablespoons oil over medium heat. Add meatballs and brown each side, 5 minutes. Transfer to a plate. Add more olive oil if needed to the pan.
  3. Reduce 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. Top with the shredded cheese and bake for 10 – 15 minutes, or until the internal temperature of the meatballs is 165°F.
  5. Garnish with more parsley if desired. Serve warm.
