Seriously a delicious way to make a chicken meatball Parmesan with a few fewer calories than beef!

It's sure is fun to try new recipes for me.

These chicken Parmesan meatballs are one that I will surely make again.

Next time though I would also like to try them in a pattie form and put them in a garlic bread submarine sandwich!

All I know is these were a great alternative to beef and taste great and so darn easy to make.

What more reasons to you need to try this recipe?

They are lighter inside than regular ground beef, easy to mash for topping too.

I just love using ground chicken for meatballs.

So Easy to Make!

They are even great appetizers making them mini-sized and serving with colored toothpicks for large gatherings. Everyone always asks for these.

The perfect idea to bring for a potluck in a slow cooker, with some crusty Italian bread to sop up the sauce!

No Matter Which Way You Serve Them They're Awesome!

There are so many uses for making these chicken Parmesan meatballs and they freeze great too if you want to make a large batch for later!

My family is a big pasta eater so I usually use them the first day on top of spaghetti then any leftovers on top of pizza mashed.

We also love Chicken Parmesan Sliders or submarine garlic bread sandwiches with loads of melted mozzarella cheese on top for dinner.

One of the easiest meals you can make are these Chicken Parmesan Meatballs

These Chicken Parmesan meatballs are baked in the oven with my Marinara sauce.

After they're cooked. Then add to a casserole dish with loads of shredded cheese until and baked until melted. Now you're ready to use them any way you like!

Less grease than beef and healthier too.

This is the perfect chicken casserole dish and the start of several meals. Chicken Parmesan meatballs can be served with pasta, in sandwiches and appetizers. Such and easy recipe you will want to make time and time again!


  • 1 pound ground Chicken or Turkey
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1/2 cup breadcrumbs
  • 1 teaspoon each salt, pepper, dried parsley and garlic powder
  • 2 cloves finely garlic, minced
  • 1/2 cup Parmesan and Romano cheese blend
  • Marinara sauce homemade or store bought
  • Shredded mozzarella cheese
  • Grating cheese


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In a large bowl combine the ground chicken, egg, breadcrumbs, Italian seasoning, garlic, and Parmesan cheese. 
  3. Shape into meatballs. Place on a parchment paper lined cookie sheet and bake until browned and crispy around 45 minutes or fry them in 1/4 inch of canola oil. 
  4. My last suggestion on how to cook these is using an air fryer. 
  5. Drain on paper towels to get off excess oil. Place them in a casserole dish. Add Marinara sauce on top with mozzarella cheese and a generous amount of grating cheese.
  6.  Return to the oven until cheese melts. Serve with your favorite boiled pasta or in a Italian sub roll sandwich. Also great in stromboli or topping pizza.
