"Make ground chicken meatballs and coat them in seasoned Panko crumbs for a beautifully browned color. Use jarred sauce from the grocery store for a shortcut in this cheesy, satisfying dish! We like it with "zoodles," but fettuccine or spaghetti would be delicious! Garlic bread and a green salad are all you need to complete this meal."

Step by Step Method

Step 1

Stir egg, grated Parmesan cheese, 3/4 cup panko crumbs, garlic powder, Italian herb seasoning blend, crushed red pepper, salt, and black pepper together in a large bowl.

Step 2

Put on a pair of food-grade disposable gloves, add chicken to the bowl, and mix with your hands until all the ingredients are well combined.

Step 3

Place remaining 1 cup panko crumbs on a plate. Using a 1-1/2-inch scoop, create about 24 meatballs. Gently roll each meatball in crumbs until lightly coated; set aside on a plate.

Step 4

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

Step 5

Place 1 tablespoon olive oil and 1 tablespoon butter in a large, oven-proof skillet over medium heat. Add half the meatballs and brown each side, turning until all sides are browned. Set this batch on a plate, and wipe the skillet clean.

Step 6

Repeat with reserved oil and butter, and cook the remaining meatballs in the same way.

Step 7

Wipe out the skillet again, and pour in marinara sauce. Place browned meatballs in sauce. They will not be submerged.

Step 8

Bake in the preheated oven for 25 minutes. Sprinkle on shredded mozzarella and return to the oven for an additional 5 minutes, or until the cheese is melted. Sprinkle with fresh parsley.
