Chicken Meatballs With Tomato Sauce

Chicken Meatballs With Tomato Sauce

40 minutes to prepare serves 4-6


2 pounds ground chicken
2 eggs
1 yellow onion, diced and divided
½ cup shredded parmesan cheese
2 tablespoons flour
1 tablespoon Italian seasoning
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
1 teaspoon red pepper flakes (optional)
1 teaspoon kosher salt
½ teaspoon black pepper
2 (28 oz) cans chunky tomato sauce
1 tablespoon olive oil


Cut onion in half. Dice half of the onion and slice other half.
Add chicken, eggs, parmesan cheese, flour, Italian seasoning, garlic, 1/2 diced onion, vinegar, red pepper flakes, salt and pepper to a bowl and mix until all ingredients are well incorporated, with clean hands or a fork.
Roll meat into balls, using approximately 2 tablespoons of chicken mixture per meatball. Set meatballs on a separate plate or sheet of parchment paper until all meat has been used.
Add oil to pan on medium heat. Sauté reserved onions until just softened. Place meatballs in pan and pour tomato sauce over top of meatballs. Bring to a simmer. Maintain simmer and cover for 20 minutes or until meatballs are fully cooked.
Serve meatballs with sauce. Add more salt and pepper, to taste.
