Chicken Parmesan Meatballs
This delicious Chicken Parmesan Meatballs recipe will become a go to dish if your family has any say in the matter, and more so, once they taste this great little recipe. This meatballs recipe starts with ground chicken, which is a great alternative to beef for meatballs. The chicken is a much lighter flavor than beef, but it is still one that tastes great when it is blended with the classic ingredients that you use to make the more standard beef meatballs recipe. So this chicken parmesan meatballs recipe is really delicious when it is blended with bread crumbs, garlic, onion and so on, and then it is cooked in tomato sauce and topped with cheese (yum). Your family will agree with that as well (and so will you, once you try it). So just try this recipe once. You may never make the standard beef meatballs recipe again.
This is a quick and easy recipe, especially since the sauce is from a commercial variety. That means you do not also have to make the tomato sauce for this meatball recipe, although you certainly could choose to do so. Still, for a quick meal, just pop open you and your family’s favorite tomato sauce and use that on the chicken parmesan meatballs recipe. It will be delicious. Every variety will work, really, whether it is a mushroom, seafood, or even sausage based tomato sauce. Chicken is wonderful in its ability to work well with other meats, veggies and even fish, so go ahead and try. Get as creative as you want, and try different sauces with this version of meatballs, made with chicken instead of the more traditional beef.
This chicken parmesan meatballs recipe can be served as an appetizer or even as a full meal on its own. This dish will be delicious whether you serve it with potatoes and veggies, as a slight twist on a classic pasta dish, or whether you serve this dish with noodles, either plain or whole wheat or whatever is the favorite variety that you and your family enjoy. This recipe can be served just alone, as a filling appetizer, or make it in to an entire meal. Any way that you make and serve this meatballs recipe, it will be a big hit. You can also serve these meatballs with chopped, raw veggies, another great way to serve a great meat recipe such as this one. The best thing about meatballs, whether you make them with chicken, beef, lamb or some other combination, is just how versatile the dish is. You can make them up in to a full meal, or serve them as an appetizer. They work with almost any carbohydrate.
