Baked Chicken Meatballs

Updated: May 24

These are soft and flavorful meatballs served in a creamy tomato sauce but not the beefy Italian bite you would expect. These chicken meatballs are cheesy and herbal; and make a lovely one-pot meal that you start on the stove but finish in the oven.

These Baked Chicken Meatballs are an easy weekend meal, a perfect Sunday Supper with leftovers to enjoy for a few lunches the following week. With clean hands, the kids can help roll the mixture into golf ball size balls. The sauce ingredients and method are universal, meaning this is a classic recipe for making "gravy" as my Italian friend calls it. You could easily make a double batch and freeze leftovers for later.

Ingredients for the sauce

3 T butter

1/2 onion chopped

3 garlic cloves, minced

2 T tomato paste (I like the individual pouches from Hunts portioned with two tablespoons each)
