Chicken Meatballs

I modified what my dad does to make his meatballs, he uses beef. I don't like beef, and I wanted to add more spices...and his recipe relies on "add a little of this, a little of that".
I like details and specific measurements.

1 lb ground chicken
1 egg
1/2 C grated parmesan cheese
1/2 C bread crumbs
1/4 C chopped white onion
3 cloves garlic minced
2 tsp dry parsley
1 tbs dry basil
2 tsp dry oregano

  1. In a large bowl, combine everything together.
  2. Use your hands to make sure everything is combined well.
  3. Form into balls.
  4. Add balls to large pot of red sauce.
  5. Cook on med-low heat for at least 3 hours. The longer, the better. The flavors get a chance to meld together.
  6. Enjoy!
I have never cooked my meatballs first before putting them in sauce, I think they have a really nice soft texture and even better flavor being cooked in sauce. If you don't have sauce or time to cook them in, I'm sure you can google how to cook them in the oven or on the stove!

  1. i love this! when my mom makes her meatballs, she puts them in the oven first to get them a little crisp on the outside and then puts them in the sauce for hours - it's yummy! i can't wait to try these :) thanks darling <3
