Is there anything more comforting than juicy meatballs smothered in a rich red sauce? I think not! Not only are these mozzarella stuffed meatballs perfect for batch-cooking, they’re also an ideal appetizer, a low-carb meal along with a salad, or simply served over spaghetti for an easy dinner.

One of my favorite meatball recipes is my baked chicken meatballs, so I didn’t reinvent the wheel here. The meatball mixture is very similar, with a few key tweaks.

I added a light breadcrumb coating that forms a nice golden-brown crust when sautéed in a little extra virgin olive oil. And I made it a little more indulgent with one simple ingredient: bocconcini (baby mozzarella balls). Yes, bite into one of these stuffed meatballs and you’ll be met with perfectly gooey, warm cheese.

To bring the comfort factor full circle, the meatballs are tossed in pasta sauce, either homemade or, for a short-cut, good store-bought marinara. Think of these as chicken parmesan meatballs! Best part? You can prepare these chicken meatballs ahead (check out my tips below).
