I think I’m in love. Ground beef move over – there’s a new protein in our kitchen! I have always been scared to cook with ground chicken. You hear so much about it being too dry and lacking flavor. I decided to tackle this issue head-on and holy cow am I thrilled with the results.

Meet my new favorite sandwich – the Tuscan Chicken Meatball Sandwich. Loaded with garlic, parmesan and sun dried tomato flavors, these meatballs are anything but boring and dry. Incredibly flavorful, juicy and so good for you – these meatballs will change the way you think about chicken meatballs forever.

Ground chicken can be a little sticky but a cookie scoop makes short work of forming the meatballs. A quick trip to the oven and a few minutes under the broiler results in perfectly golden, delicious meatballs.

I nestled the meatballs inside a garlic spread smeared French roll, lined with Provolone cheese. A quick trip to the broiler results in a perfectly toasted roll, perfectly melted cheese and the happiest little home these meatballs could ask for.

A drizzle of sun dried tomato mayo and a sprinkle of chopped parsley finishes off these sandwiches with a punch of flavor and color.

Love!

Chicken Meatballs
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Combine ground chicken, egg, sun dried tomato pesto, savory garlic spread, parsley, bread crumbs and parmesan cheese, mixing just until combined.
  3. Lightly oil or spray a baking sheet.
  4. Use a cookie scoop to scoop out 20-24 meatballs and place on prepared baking sheet.
  5. Lightly brush tops of meatballs with olive oil and bake for 15 minutes.
  6. Turn on broiler and finish meatballs under the broiler for 2-5 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove and set aside.
  7. Spread a tablespoon of Mezzetta Savory Garlic Everything Spread on each split roll. Line with two slices of provolone cheese.
  8. Place under broiler for 2-3 minutes until cheese is melted and roll is lightly toasted.
  9. Place 4-5 meatballs on top of the cheese in each roll. The cheese will help the meatballs to "stick" and not roll around.
