1 lb (454 g) Maple Leaf Prime Naturally® Extra Lean Ground Chicken
1 Egg yolk

1/3 cup (80 mL) Grated Mozzarella or Provolone cheese
2 tbsp (30 mL) Chopped fresh herbs (parsley, basil, thyme)
3 Cloves garlic, minced
Salt and pepper
1 tbsp (15 mL) Olive oil
1 (650 mL) Jar ready prepared Marinara sauce


GENTLY mix together, chicken, egg yolk, Parmesan, Mozzarella, herbs, garlic, salt and pepper in a large bowl using your hands.

FORM into 1” (2.5 cm) meatballs. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high. Working in batches, add meatballs to the pan being careful not to overcrowd. Brown on all sides. Continue with the remaining meatballs.

POUR Marinara sauce into the same pan and add all of the meatballs back into the pan. Bring to a boil then reduce heat and simmer the meatballs in the sauce for about 15 minutes or until cooked through and the internal temperature reaches 165°F (74C).
