Ingredients  [ For 4 to 5 people ]    [   Preparation time : 10 minute  –  Cooking time : 35 minutes  ]


  • 1lb ground chicken
  • 1 cup panko breadcrumbs (or ordinary breadcrumbs)
  • 1 small egg
  • 1/3 cup grated parmesan cheese
  • Salt and pepper
  • 2 tbsp olive oil

Cheese Sauce

  • 3 tbsp butter
  • 3 tbsp all purpose flour
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 cup chicken broth (or sub with milk)
  • 1 cup freshly grated cheese (cheddar, Monterey Jack or Gruyere are my favorites)
  • 1 tsp mustard powder (optional)
  • Salt and pepper
  • Freshly chopped parsley

Preparation Method

  1. Place all Meatballs ingredients except oil in a bowl, and mix well with your hands.
  2. Measure out heaped tablespoons and roll into balls.
  3. Heat 1 tbsp oil in a non-stick skillet over medium-high heat. Add half the meatballs and cook, browning all over, for 5 minutes.
  4. Remove meatballs into a bowl, then repeat with remaining batch.
  5. Reduce heat to medium and add butter. Once melted, add flour and mix to combine.
  6. Slowly add the milk, whisking as you go, until lump free. Then whisk in chicken broth.
  7. Whisk constantly as the liquid comes to heat, then whisk constantly once you start seeing steam.
  8. Once the sauce thickens, add cheese and stir until it melts. Then add mustard powder, salt, and pepper to taste.
  9. Return meatballs into the sauce, rolling them around to coat and warm through.
  10. Serve with pasta of choice!


Enjoy it!!
