Cheesy Chicken Meatballs
Cheesy Chicken Meatballs made with ground chicken, diced bell peppers, onions, parmesan cheese, and the unexpected ingredients of mayonnaise and stone ground mustard are so delicious.
Smother these meatballs in pasta sauce and mozzarella cheese, bake and serve hot.
My husband and I only started eating ground chicken in the past 2 years. We usually fix them as burgers, with lettuce, tomatoes and pickles. We love them like this, and have always added the mayonnaise and ground mustard in the burger patties.
I created a recipe for these meatballs a few months ago and he is requesting them a lot more often. We eat them along side mashed potatoes and a vegetable for dinner, as well as over pasta with a salad and garlic bread.
I have served these as one of my appetizers at a family gathering and my grandchildren, as well as the adults, loved them because they were so moist and delicious.Recommended Reading
Start by placing the ground chicken in a large mixing bowl. Add the salt, pepper, onions, diced peppers, mayo, and stone ground mustard. Combine slightly. Add the parmesan cheese and combine well.
Shape into desired size meatballs. Place in a baking dish that has been sprayed with no stick cooking spray.
Cover chicken meatballs with half a jar of pasta sauce. Bake 40 minutes.
Add remaining sauce. Top with the mozzarella cheese and bake additional 10 minutes.
Remove from the oven and serve hot. Serve with crusty bread or over a pasta. They are a delicious variation of a meatball sub on rolls or crispy garlic bread, with extra melted cheese.
The Cheesy Chicken Meatballs can be formed into smaller, 1-inch balls, to be served as appetizers, as well as about 3 inch size for a meal.
