Chicken Meatballs in Parmesan Sauce

I recently saw someone post that they had meatballs in a parmesan sauce at a meatball restaurant - who knew those even existed?! Anyway, it put me on a quest to search for a similar recipe. I came across this recipe and it turned out really well. My kids ate everything off their plates. I couldn't believe it! Please try this recipe - you won't regret it!

Kinley kept saying, "Mommy, these meatballs are GOOD!" Kid approved.

  1. Making these right now! Love the nice change-up of green onion with chicken instead of the usual white onion with parsley in beef. Smelling yummy in the oven! Thanks!
