How to Make Spaghetti With Chicken Meatballs
- Add the minced chicken in a large bowl. Add the egg yolk, and season with thyme, garlic powder, chili flakes, parsley, salt, and half of the parmesan. Mix everything until smooth.
- Pinch off a piece of the meat mixture and gently roll it between your hands to form a small meatball, around 1-2 inch (2,5 cm – 4 cm) in diameter. Continue shaping until all the meat is used.
- Heat 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add the meatballs and cook them evenly for 15-20 minutes total time.
- Heat the remaining oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add the onion, garlic, and cook for 1 minute. Add the tomato paste, tomato sauce, and tomato juice. Bring to a boil and reduce the heat.
- Season with salt, pepper, and add the remaining parmesan. Give it a good stir.
- Add the meatballs and garnish with some parsley. Put a lid on and cook for 5 more minutes on low heat.
- You can serve them with spaghetti or other dishes.
