Preparation

  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C). Line a rimmed baking sheet with foil.

  3. Add the garlic and cook, stirring constantly, until aromatic, about 1 minute. Remove the pan from the heat and let the onion mixture cool to room temperature.
  4. In a large bowl, combine the ground chicken, egg, panko, Parmesan, parsley, salt, pepper, and the onion mixture and use your hands to mix until just combined.
  5. Roll the chicken mixture into 1½-inch balls and place on the prepared baking sheet, spacing 2 inches apart.
  6. Bake the meatballs until browned and cooked through, 20 to 25 minutes.
  7. Serve with pasta and sauce of your choice.
