1– 25 oz jar marinara of choice (I like Rao’s or the Organic Tomato Basil from Trader Joe’s- see this post)
1/3 c shredded mozzarella
Fresh basil, sliced into strips, for serving
Toasted bread (our favorite!)
Preheat oven to 425 degrees and grease a large oven safe skillet or casserole dish.
Add ground chicken, garlic, parmesan, bread crumbs, garlic powder, oregano, basil, thyme, red pepper flakes, salt, pepper, egg, and parsley to a medium sized mixing bowl; and mix until well incorporated.
Using either an ice cream scoop or your hands, roll chicken mixture into 2 inch balls and place directly into greased skillet (should make around 15-16 meatballs). Transfer to the oven and bake for 20-25 minutes, or until firm and starting to golden.
Remove skillet from the oven, and carefully pour the entire jar of marinara on top. Take a spoon and cover all meatballs with the sauce. Sprinkle with shredded mozzarella, and transfer back to the oven for an additional 18-20 minutes, until cheese is melted and bubbling.
