1 lb.

ground chicken

1/2 c.

bread crumbs

1/4 c.

freshly grated Parmesan

2 tbsp.

freshly chopped parsley, plus more for garnish


cloves garlic, minced


large egg

Kosher salt

Freshly ground black pepper

3 tbsp.

extra-virgin olive oil


(28-oz.) can crushed tomatoes

1 tsp.

crushed red pepper flakes

1 1/2 c.

shredded mozzarella

  1. Preheat oven to 400º. In a large bowl, combine ground chicken, bread crumbs, Parmesan, parsley, half the garlic, and egg and season with salt and pepper. Mix until fully combined, then form into meatballs. 
  2. In a large oven proof skillet, heat 1 tablespoon oil over medium heat. Add meatballs and brown each side, 5 minutes. Transfer to a plate. 
  3. Add remaining 2 tablespoons oil to skillet. Add remaining half garlic and cook until fragrant, 1 minute, then stir in crushed tomatoes and red pepper flakes. 
  4. Bring to a simmer, then return meatballs to skillet. Top with mozzarella and bake until cheese is melted and chicken is no longer pink, 10 minutes more. 
  5. Garnish with parsley before serving.
