Servings: 4 people


  • 1 package ButcherBox ground chicken
  • cup grated parmesan
  • 1 cup bread crumbs
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella
  • ¼ cup tomato paste
  • ¼ cup cooking oil


  • Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • In a large mixing bowl, combine ground chicken, parmesan cheese, ¾ cup bread crumbs, Italian seasoning, salt, and pepper.
  • Once you have thoroughly mixed the ground chicken mixture, form into 12-14 golf ball-sized meatballs.
  • With your thumb, create a well in each meatball. Add about ¼ of a teaspoon tomato paste to the bottom of the well and then a nice pinch of shredded mozzarella. Form back into a ball and roll meatballs in remaining bread crumbs. Just a light coat is all you need.
  • Heat oil in a medium skillet over medium heat. When oil is hot, add meatballs and cook without disturbing for approximately 3 minutes. Remove from pan and place on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Place in oven and bake for 25 minutes.
  • Serve with your favorite pasta or salad. Makes a great snack on the run or lunch for the week.
