Yields:  16 meatballs (3 meatballs = 1 red container)

Ingredients:

  • 1 egg white
  • 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese, grated
  • 1/4 cup panko bread crumbs (can use regular bread crumbs)
  • 1 tablespoon dried parsley
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried dill
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 pound 99% fat-free ground chicken breast
  • 1 container feta cheese (optional)
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 1 cup Franks red hot sauce

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F.
  2. Add red onion, garlic, egg white, Parmesan cheese, bread crumbs and seasonings to a large bowl then stir with a fork to combine.
  3. Add ground chicken then mix until combined – do not overmix or meatballs will be tough.
  4. Divide chicken mixture into quarters, then each quarter into 4 balls.
  5. Optional: Press a small pinch of Feta into the center of each ball then close mixture around cheese to seal.
  6. Place meatballs onto a buttered cooling rack set on top of a baking sheet, then bake for 20 minutes.
  7. Melt butter in hot sauce in a crock pot or large stock pot and stir to combine. Add cooked meatballs then use a spoon to coat in sauce.
  8. Place a lid on top and turn heat to low to keep warm.
  9. Serve over a bed of zoodles or jasmine rice or wrapped around bib lettuce for a meatball “lettuce” sub sandwich.
