Chicken Parmesan Meatballs
This recipe is so simple and delicious. Just a few notes about it... Ground chicken is very soft and is hard to form into meatballs. But, once you get them rounded, they will keep their shape. Alternatively, you can also substitute ground turkey. I used pizza sauce in this recipe as opposed to marinara because it is significantly lower in carbs but produces a similar flavor. You can find my pizza sauce recipe - HERE. When using a store bought sauce, make sure to read your labels and find a sauce that is a low-carb, reduced sugar version if available.
