Ingredients

  • 1 lb pound ground chicken
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan
  • 1/4 cup breadcrumbs
  • 1 egg
  • 1 garlic clove minced
  • 1/2 tsp dried oregano
  • 1/2 tsp dried parsley
  • 1/4 tsp paprika
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 jar marinara sauce
  • Cooked spaghetti for serving
  • Whole mozzarella cheese for serving
  • Fresh parsley for serving

Instructions

  • In a large bowl, combine the ground chicken, grated Parmesan cheese, breadcrumbs, egg, garlic oregano, parsley, paprika, salt and pepper.
  • Use your hands to combine everything until the mixture is well blended and then form the mixture into small meatballs, making about 12.
  • In a large skillet over medium heat, pour the marinara sauce and carefully place the chicken meatballs into the marinara sauce.
  • Cover the skillet and allow them to cook for 12-15 minutes, then uncover the skillet and turn over the meatballs to allow them to cook on the other side covered for 3-5 more minutes.
  • Preheat the oven to 400°F.
  • Add cooked spaghetti to a shallow oven-safe dish. Transfer the marinara sauce and the chicken meatballs on top of the spaghetti and add mozzarella cheese on top. Bake for 5 minutes until the cheese melts.
  • Serve immediately, garnished with parsley, if desired.
