  • 1 egg beaten
  • 1/2 cup Italian seasoned bread crumbs
  • 1 tablespoon fresh parsley minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder not garlic salt
  • 1/2 tablespoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 tablespoon dried basil
  • 1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
  • 1 pound ground chicken


  • Preheat your oven to 375. Line a rimmed baking sheet with tin foil and set a cooling rack on top of it. Spray it with cooking spray.
  • In the bottom of a large bowl, combine the egg, bread crumbs, fresh parsley, salt, garlic powder, oregano, basil, and cheese.
  • Add the ground chicken. Mix together until throughly combined.
  • Roll into into 1 to 1 1/2 inch balls and set on the cooling rack (I got about 24 meatballs out of it).
  • Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until the meatballs reach 165 degrees. If you don't have an instant read thermometer, cut one of the meatballs that is in the middle of the sheet in half to ensure it is fully cooked through.
