Chicken Parmesan Meatballs Recipe

 

Tasty, cheesy ground chicken meatballs are served on toasted slider rolls with Ragu® Old World Style® Traditional Sauce.

These Chicken Parmesan Meatballs are an Italian dinner that’s ready in no time at all. Seasoned meatballs with Panko crumbs for that crunch you crave when you eat Chicken Parmesan.

Serve these Chicken Parmesan Meatballs over noodles with garlic bread and a salad for a delicious dinner.

What everyone loves about Chicken Parmesan is the crunchy outside. Panko breadcrumbs gives it that crunchy bite and helps give the meatballs and little more structure inside. I didn’t want to cover these with cheese because they’re so pretty by themselves.

I have abandoned fatty ground beef in favor of healthier options such as ground chicken and turkey. I can ensure with the perfect additions, these will not be bland nor dry – you will not be missing the beef here.
