Quick Facts

Servings: 6
Prep Time: 20 min.
Cook Time: 60 min.
Total: 1 hr. 20 min.
Chicken "meatballs" upgrade a spaghetti dinner.

Ingredients

  • 1 lb ground chicken
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese, grated
  • 1/2 cup bread crumbs
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tsp fresh oregano, chopped
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 Tbs olive oil
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 1 14 oz can, tomato sauce
  • 1 14 oz can, diced tomatoes with Italian-style herbs
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper, freshly ground
  • 1 cup Parmesan cheese, grated
  • 1 box spaghetti

Directions

  • Place ground chicken, egg, Parmesan cheese, bread crumbs, garlic, oregano, and 1/2 teaspoon salt in large bowl.
  • Knead mixture together with hands until evenly combined. Divide mixture in half; break apart and shape into 1-inch balls.
  • In large, non-stick skillet, warm olive oil over medium-high heat. Place meatballs in pan, up to eight at a time, and cook until all sides are browned, approximately 5 minutes for each meatball. Remove meatballs from pan with slotted spoon; place on plate.
  • Reduce heat on stove to medium-low. Add onion; saute until tender, about 3 minutes. Stir in tomato sauce and diced tomatoes and simmer mixture for 10 minutes.
  • Gently add all meatballs to sauce, cover pan and simmer 20 minutes. Sprinkle 1/2 teaspoon of salt and freshly ground black pepper into mixture.
  • While sauce is cooking, cook spaghetti according to package directions.
  • Divide cooked spaghetti among six large, shallow bowls or plates. Top with meatballs and sauce and serve Parmesan cheese separately for topping.
