Chicken Parmesan Meatballs Recipe

My husband and I love going out to eat.  Whenever we go somewhere that serves chicken parmesan, one of us always ends up ordering it!  We’ve been trying to eat healthier so we thought making our own chicken parmesan at home might be a better option!  These Chicken Parmesan Meatballs are a fun twist on traditional chicken parmesan but taste just as amazing!
