  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C).
  2. In a large bowl, mix together the bread crumbs and milk and allow to soak for 5 minutes.
  3. To the bowl with the soaked bread crumbs, add the ground chicken, egg, ¼ cup Parmesan, McCormick® Garlic Powder, black pepper, salt, McCormick® Onion Powder, McCormick® Paprika, McCormick® Oregano Leaves, McCormick® Parsley Flakes, McCormick® Basil Leaves, and McCormick® Crushed Red Pepper and mix until well-combined.
  4. Roll the ground chicken mixture into 1½-inch balls (you should have about 12) and place in an 8-inch square baking dish. Pour the marinara sauce around the meatballs.
  5. Bake for 25–30 minutes, or until the meatballs are fully cooked through.
  6. Remove the meatballs from the oven and turn the broiler on high. Sprinkle 2 tablespoons of Parmesan cheese and top with the mozzarella. Place under the broiler for 2–4 minutes, until the cheese is melted and browned in some places (watch closely so the cheese does not burn).
  7. Assemble the meatball subs: Scoop 3 meatballs and some of the marinara sauce onto each toasted roll. Sprinkle with more Parmesan cheese, McCormick® Parsley Flakes, and McCormick® Basil Leaves.
  8. Serve warm.
  9. Enjoy!
