Chicken Florentine Meatballs
Total TimePrep: 40 min. Cook: 20 min.
So good??. Some reviews said that the meatballs were bland and needed seasoning so I omitted the salt (and dried onions) and added an envelope of onion soup mix. Also I put the raw meatballs in my slow cooker covered byba jar of my favorite spaghetti sauce. Moist and flavorful. A keeper!
Very delicious and simple to make. They freeze well. I do double the spices, and only cook the meatballs in the microwave for 10 minutes. Since ground chicken is very lean, I like to finish cooking the meatballs in the sauce.
These are an easy win. I've done some variations as well (cooking meatballs in slow cooker with sauce after pre-bake in oven, serving over zucchini noodles, etc...). A staple in my recipe box!
Really tasty dish. I gave it 4 stars because the meatballs were a tad dry for our tastes. Next time I will shorten the baking time, and cook them longer in the sauce. Hubby said this one is a keeper! VFE
One of our favorite recipes! We liked the chicken meatballs - it was a nice change from traditional beef. I thought the sauce mixture was great - simple yet tasty! Always looking for ways to spruce up some spaghetti squash!
We loved this recipe! It will be a favorite from now on and I have already shared the recipe with several friends. The only thing I added to the sauce was a zucchini, quartered lengthwise and cut in 1/2" slices since my hubby doesn't care for mushrooms. I reduced the amount of mushrooms and used whole button mushrooms so he could pick them out - and give them to me! Also, to keep the meatballs from sticking to the baking rack, I would suggest spraying the baking rack before baking the meatballs. Loved the spaghetti squash instead of pasta!
Very very dry and almost tasteless- add a lot more spices
These were really good, not dry, just perfect. I actually broke up a couple of hot italian sausages in with the ground chicken because we like spice! I will make these again.
Have made these for years, ever since the recipe was first published. Just had them again the other night. I freeze leftovers and they are just as great the next time. I make them exactly as recipe says but I add a small piece of fresh mozzarella in the middle when forming into meatballs. It puts them over the top!!
I have made this recipe several times, and every time it's a winner. I even used it as one of the dishes for a catered wedding reception. I had a hard time finding ground chicken, so used turkey instead. I also doubled the recipe and put the meatballs with sauce in the crock pot and let them cook all day. I plan to do it again tomorrow for Christmas dinner for my mom and me. Thanks. This is a terrific recipe.
