  • 1 Egg slightly beaten
  • 1/2 cup Seasoned Breadcrumbs or GF substitute I used whole wheat
  • 1 cup Mozzarella Cheese shredded
  • 1/2 cup Parmesan Cheese shredded
  • 1/4 cup fresh basil cut into slivers
  • 24 ounces marinara sauce divided; 1/3 cup for meatball mixture and the remaining sauce for serving
  • 1 pound ground chicken breast


  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  • Add all of the ingredients (only 1/3 cup marinara sauce), except for the chicken, to a large bowl and thoroughly combine.
  • Add the ground chicken to the bowl and combine.
  • Form mixture into Tablespoon-sized balls.
  • Pour remaining marinara sauce in the bottom of a glass baking dish.
  • Place formed meatballs on top of the sauce.
  • Bake uncovered for about 15 minutes or until chicken is cooked through and no longer pink.
  • Serving suggestions: For an appetizer, scoop marinara into a bowl and serve alongside meatballs and toothpick. Or, serve over spaghetti noodles or in a sub roll with more cheese and marinara sauce.


Meatballs can be made ahead of time and frozen raw. Or cook and freeze. Meatballs can be made larger, however the cook time will be longer. Can also be baked on a cookie sheet coated with cooking spray.
