Chicken-Parmesan Meatballs

Chicken-Parmesan Meatballs from page 35 of the Southern Living 2021 Annual Recipe Cookbook.

I was gifted a copy of the Southern Living 2021 Annual Recipe Cookbook last year from Abrams Books as a part of the Abrams Dinner Party. I have loved every recipe I have made from it, but this recipe is my absolute favorite! I love Chicken Parmesan and these meatballs are much easier than the traditional breaded chicken version.

Ground chicken, basil, breadcrumbs, eggs, spices, and parmesan cheese are mixed together and formed into meatballs. The meatballs are browned, a quick sauce is added, cheese gets piled on and it all gets delicious as it bakes in the oven.

I served the meatballs over spaghetti with some extra parmesan and a side salad.

The entire meal was 13 WW points, which could be lowered by cooking the meatballs with less oil and reducing the amount of cheese.

Thanks to Abrams Dinner Party for the advance copy of Southern Living 2021 Annual Recipe Cookbook in return for an unbiased review.
