Recipe Ingredients for Chicken Ricotta Meatballs

1 pounds ground chicken
1/2 medium onion, minced
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 egg
1 T dried parsley
1/2 tablespoon Italian seasoning
1/2 tablespoon kosher salt
1/4 cups part-skim mozzarella cheese
1 teaspoons freshly ground black pepper
1/2 cups part-skim ricotta

Recipe Directions for Chicken Ricotta Meatballs

  1. Preheat oven to 400 F. In a large bowl, combine the first 7 ingredients, 1/8 cup of the mozzarella, and 1/2 teaspoon of the pepper. Mix just to combine. Shape the mixture into 8 large meatballs (each should consist of about 3/4 cup of meat). Place on a baking pan and set aside.

  2. In a medium bowl, combine the ricotta with the remaining mozzarella and the remaining pepper; set aside.

  3. Bake the meatballs for 15 minutes in upper third of oven. Remove from oven and turn on broiler. Spoon 1 tablespoon of the ricotta mixture onto each meatball. Broil 3 to 5 minutes or until the ricotta just starts to brown. Serve the meatballs with jarred marinara sauce, or Chunky Marinara Sauce.
