Chicken Parmesan Meatballs

I love chicken Parmesan, but come party time serving a plated meal is too much work.

The perfect solution is a a popable meatball.  Made with fresh herbs and Parmesan cheese this is a meatball to remember.

Game day definitely calls for finger food.  Hearty finger foods are my favorite.  Chicken nuggets, bites and meatball poppers are at the top of our list.

Even when it is not game day or a party we have a dinner full of yummy finger foods from time to time.

It is really fun to mix things up and I have found that when it is bite size, my picky family seems to enjoy it even more.

I myself have an affinity for meatballs and love getting creative with them.

Chicken Parmesan is likely an Italian favorite in every household, but I especially love dishes covered in sauce and cheese.

So it was only a matter of time before this fabulous dish was transformed into a meatball popper.

Tender and flavorful ground chicken is combined with lots of herbs and Parmesan cheese, baked to perfection.

Once the meatballs are golden brown they are drizzled with marinara sauce and covered in cheese.  That’s amore!

These meatball popper go from prep to plate in just 30 minutes.  They are one of our favorite make ahead freezer foods.

I make a triple batch of meatballs, bake them and freeze them.

I portion them out into about 20-24 meatballs per package then freeze them in resealable plastic bags.  To prepare: simply thaw and cook for 10 minutes in a 350°F oven.
