YES!!!! MORE MEATBALLS!!! Just can't get enough of them...haha!! Here is another idea for an easy appetizer or any quick snack. You can make tons in no time so also great for a party.....and they are stuffed with ooey gooey cheese...so the kids will love them. You can never go wrong with a meatball!!
CHICKEN PARMESAN MEATBALLS
3 LBS GROUND CHICKEN 1 TBLSP GARLIC POWDER 1 TBLSP PARSLEY 1/2 CUP GRATED PECORINO ROMANO CHEESE 1 EGGS 1/2 CUP BREAD CRUMBS SALT & PEPPER
1 WHOLE MOZZARELLA CUT INTO CUBES SEASONED BREAD CRUMBS PANKO CRUMBS GRATED PARMESAN CHEESE FOR SERVING MARINARA SAUCE FOR SERVING
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees!! Let's roll!!!
Start by getting the ground chicken in the bowl....and then do my Grandma's little meatball chant. It goes like this.....Salt, Pepper, Garlic, Parsley, Cheese, Egg & Breadcrumb. All good stuff!! If you memorize that. you can make a great meatball everytime!! Get it all in there ....except for the panko crumbs and the mozzarella cubes of course....and mix with your hands!!
Great!! Once you are all mixed up nicely, you can take a small scoop in your hand (as big or small as you like your balls) and make a hole in the center. I like to make these bite size....like pop in your mouth size. The kids love everything small. But...make a lot....they go fast!!
Now stuff it with a small cube of cheese and roll it all around in your hand to cover the cheese completely.
Grab another bowl and mix together some of my Homemade Breadcrumbs and Panko together. About half and half is perfect. You can use any breadcrumb you like if you have none of mine prepared to make it easier. Now just roll it in the mixture and get them all on a parchment paper lined baking tray. I love using parchment paper because there is no need for preparing the pan and makes cleanup a breeze!!
That's it!!! Throw them into the oven for about 30 minutes or until a nice golden brown.......
Serve them with some of my Marinara Sauce on the side to dip in. Again, you can also use any prepared sauce you like. Grate some fresh parmesan cheese on top....gorgeous!!!
Delicious.....beautiful.....great snack, appetizer or party platter!! ALL GOOD STUFF!! ENJOY!!!!!
