Ground Chicken Meatballs

These are really delicious and don’t need to be added to a tomato sauce recipe.  I make these and serve with a garlic pasta alongside.

2 lbs. ground chicken
1 cup flavored breadcrumbs
1/2 cup grated Parmesan or Pecorino-Romano cheese
1 egg slightly beaten
1 tsp. kosher salt
1/2 tsp. ground pepper
1/2 tsp. garlic powder

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees, and lightly grease or foil a baking sheet, set aside.

In a medium-sized bowl, mix all ingredients together well, with a light but thorough touch.  If you mix it too much the meatballs will be tough.  Shape into golf-ball sized balls (or smaller if you wish) and place on baking sheet.  Place baking sheet in oven and bake for 35-40 minutes, or until done.  If you made smaller meatballs, then adjust your cooking time.
