1/4 teaspoon onion powder
1/4 teaspoon pepper

1. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.

2. In a mixing bowl, combine the ground chicken, egg, breadcrumbs, water, Parmesan cheese, garlic powder, onion powder, thyme, salt, and pepper and mix well to combine.

3. Take your baking dish, and pour in the jar of pasta sauce. Then, take the ground chicken mixture and form them into meatballs, I was able to make 20 meatballs. Place all the meatballs into the pasta sauce baking dish. Bake for 30 minutes.

4. Once it’s done baking, remove from the oven. Cover the top with the Mozzarella cheese and sprinkle some more Parmesan cheese overtop. Place under the broiler for 4 minutes until it’s browned and bubbly. Always watch food under the broiler very closely! Things can burn quickly. Serve with pasta or on bread for a chicken parm sub!


You really should use high quality pasta sauce for this. The sauce is a main ingredient, and you want to make sure you’re getting the best flavors to complement your homemade Chicken Parm Meatballs!
