This recipe is a lighter and lower fat version of the classic meatball.  Enjoy!

Chicken Meatballs


  1. In a large mixing bowl, add the ground chicken, breadcrumbs, egg, and salt, and pepper and mix with large wooden spoon or clean hands (you can wear gloves if you prefer).
  2. Next, add the onion, garlic, cheese, basil, and parsley and blend well.
  3. Form small meatballs about 1 inch in diameter and place them on an oiled baking sheet.
  4. Bake the meatballs at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 30 minutes.
  5. Once the meatballs are done, transfer them to the pot with the sauce and allow them to flavor the sauce (about 15-20 minutes).
  6. Serve with freshly grated parmesan cheese and sprinkle with parsley.

    Hi Corrine – I’m your mom’s Texas cousin and have had her meatballs and sauce tons of times! You are right….they are the absolute best. In fact, I still have her original hand-written recipe she wrote out for me on one of our Rhode Island trips when we were “younger”!! The paper it is written on is pretty worn, but I have kept it in a favorite cookbook for probably 25 years and would never re-write it. It is perfect just as it is. Your mom and I look more like sisters than cousins! Love your website and happy I found it. Your recipes sound delicious and I made the Butternut Squash Risotto. Big hit! Thank you! Hope to be in Rhode Island soon to visit my New England Branch of our family tree!! Hugs!

    They were easy to make, and won the “best meatballs” award in my house. Thank you, they were awesome!
