Directions

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Heat theolive oil over medium high heat in a small sauté pan. Sauté the onion until soft, about 5 minutes. Add the garlic and sauté for one additional minute.

Lightly mix together the onion and garlic, ground chicken, ¼ cup Italian breadcrumbs, mozzarella cheese, oregano, basil, parsley, red pepper flakes, egg, and salt in a large bowl.

Using a melon scoop or your hands, roll the chicken mixture into mini meatballs. In a platter or a large bowl add the panko and remaining ¾ cup italian seasoned breadcrumbs and combine well. Roll each meatball into the mixture.

Place the meatballs on a greased baking sheet and bake until the chicken is cooked through, about 20 minutes. Place a toothpick in each ball and serve alongside the marinara sauce.
