Chicken Parmesan is a classic Italian dish that just screams “comfort food.” These baked chicken paresan meatballs can be served with pasta or served as a chicken Parmesan meatball sub sandwich.  The recipe is super easy too! ; we’re all pretty familiar with the basics of meatball preparation; ground meat, eggs, breadcrumbs, and seasonings are pretty standard.

Here is how to make them! 


  • 2 pounds ground chicken
  • 1 cup Parmesan cheese, grated
  • ¾ cup Panko breadcrumbs
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 tablespoons Italian seasoning + extra for garnish
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • ¼ cup yellow onion, finely diced
  • 3-4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt, divided
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper, divided
  • 2 cups marinara sauce
  • 12 cherry-sized mozzarella balls, halved
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 carrots, shredded
  • ½ cup green onions, sliced
  • 3-4 Roma tomatoes, diced


  1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Line a baking sheet with foil or parchment paper. Spray with cooking spray and set aside.
  2. Combine chicken, parmesan cheese, Panko breadcrumbs, Worcestershire sauce, eggs, Italian seasoning, ¼ cup diced yellow onion, garlic, 1 teaspoon salt, and ½ teaspoon pepper in a large bowl. With clean hands, mix until ingredients are evenly blended.
  3. Scoop 2 tablespoons of meat and roll into a ball. Set each meatball on prepared baking sheet, evenly spacing each meatball 1-inch apart.
  4. Bake for 15 minutes at 400°F.
  5. While the meatballs bake, sauté green onion, shredded carrots, and diced Roma tomatoes in a medium pan with 1 tablespoon olive oil, until softened. Season with ½ teaspoon kosher salt and ½ teaspoon black pepper. Transfer to a serving dish and set aside.
  6. Remove meatballs from oven. Top each meatball with 1 tablespoon of marinara and a halved mozzarella cheese ball. Bake for an additional 3-5 minutes until cheese is melted. Garnish each meatball with a dash of Italian seasoning.
  7. Place meatballs on top of the tomatoes and carrots. Serve as-is or with your favorite pasta.
