giada’s chicken meatballs & tjs pasta arrabiata

15 Mar

tonight didnt have to be a quick & easy night – but it turned out to be just that.  I didnt have anything defrosted so i pulled out a package of ground chicken and defrosted it in the microwave.  which makes for quick and easy!  Giada makes these mini and then fries them — i made them with my large pampered chef cookie scoop and baked at 375 for 20 minutes.  i served them with tj’s pasta arrabiata which has a nice kick!


  • 1/4 cup bread crumbs ( i used seasoned)
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 tablespoon milk
  • 1 tablespoon ketchup
  • 3/4 cup grated parmesan
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 pound ground chicken

In a medium bowl, stir together the bread crumbs, eggs, milk, ketchup, cheese, and the salt and pepper. Add the chicken and gently stir to combine.  Bake at 375 for 20 min or until done
