Chicken Meatballs in Tomato Sauce


For the meatballs
  • 1 pound lean ground chicken (I like Organic Smart Chicken)
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese (1/2 cup or 16 grams if using a *Microplane/zester)
  • 1/2 cup breadcrumbs
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • A few splashes of Worcestershire sauce (optional)
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 3 Ingredient Simple Delicious Tomato Sauce
  • 1 pound whole wheat linguine (My favorite brand is Delverde.)


  1. Heat olive oil in a large pot. Add garlic and cook until fragrant. Add crushed tomatoes, salt, pepper, and water and bring to a simmer.
  2. Meanwhile, mix up all the ingredients for the meatballs and form into any sized balls. Place the meatballs into the tomato sauce and cook at a gentle boil for 20 minutes or until the internal temperature of the meatballs registers 165.
