Chicken Parm Meatballs
- 1 1/4 lb. ground chicken
- 2 tbsp. onion, chopped
- 1/2 cup parmesan cheese
- 1/2 cup breadcrumbs (I used a slice of my homemade whole grain bread)
- zest of 1/2 lemon
- 1 tbsp. parsley, chopped
- 1 minced garlic clove
- 1 tsp. fennel seeds
- 1 egg, whisked
- salt & pepper
- 1 14-oz can pizza sauce
- 3 tbsp. olive oil
- 4 oz. fresh mozzarella
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F, placing a rack near the top of the oven.
Combine all of the ingredients, except for the pizza sauce, oil, and mozzarella, in a medium bowl and mix well with your hands.
Make large balls with your hands and arrange them, one by one, in a muffin tin sprayed with non-stick cooking spray.
In a small bowl, mix together the pizza sauce and the olive oil. Use a brush to rub the mixture on the meatballs. Put in the oven and make for 15 minutes.
Slice the mozzarella and place a slice on top of each pizza sauce covered meatball. Put the pan of meatballs back in the oven and broil for 3-5 minutes, or until the cheese is melted.
Remove the meatballs from the oven, serve warm with remaining pizza sauce.
