  1. Love! Can’t wait to try these. I can’t stop making your Asian ones too! Thanks for the amazing recipes!!!

  2. I love meatballs, and this recipe sounds yummy! 2 questions…I know it says it will serve 6, but how many meatballs per serving (ish)? And secondly, how much Parmesan cheese do you add since it is called Chicken Parmesan Meatballs? I love Moz for its meltability, but Parm has way more flavor. Thanks for sharing this!

    1. I think about 2 meatballs per person. It is really going to depend on how large or small you make the meatballs. I usually end up doubling the recipe so I have leftovers. You could add a handful of shredded parmesan cheese to the bowl of meatball mixture. I agree parmesan has much more flavor!

  3. It was delicious, but next time I will add fresh parmesan to the meatball mix. I served them on top of a basil tomato sauce.

  4. Possibly a weird question: but what’s the recommended baking time if these are made without the sauce and cheese? Thanks for any help!

  5. Do you think I could make the balls the night before a party, put in fridge, then pop them in the oven with sauce/cheese the next night? Great recipe!
