Description

This is such an incredibly flavorful and satisfying recipe for chicken meatball zoodles served in a gorgeous tomato basil sauce!

Ingredients

  • FOR THE MEATBALLS:
  • 1 pound Ground Chicken
  • ¼ cups Seasoned Breadcrumbs
  • ¼ cups Grated Parmesan Cheese
  • 1 whole Egg
  • 1 teaspoon Dried Onion
  • 1 teaspoon Garlic Powder
  • 1 teaspoon Dried Thyme
  • 1 teaspoon Dried Parsley
  • 5 whole Fresh Basil Leaves, Roughly Chopped
  • 1 pinch Salt
  • 1 pinch Black Pepper
  • FOR THE TOMATO BASIL ZOODLES
  • 1 dash Olive Oil
  • 2 whole Tomatoes, Diced Small
  • 1 whole Onion, Diced Small
  • 4 cloves Garlic, Minced
  • ½ cups Fresh Basil, Roughly Chopped
  • 1 Tablespoon Tomato Paste
  • ¼ cups Red Wine
  • 1 can (28 Oz. Size) Diced Tomatoes
  • 24 ounces, weight Frozen Zucchini Spirals
  • Salt And Black Pepper To Taste

Preparation

First, make the chicken meatballs. Preheat oven to 375ºF and line a sheet tray with a silicone mat. Combine all of the meatball ingredients in a medium bowl and use your clean hands to just dive in and bring it all together into a uniform mixture. Form the mixture into 20 or so smaller meatballs and lay them out on the sheet tray. Bake them for 20–25 minutes, until golden on the outside and cooked through. While they bake, get the sauce simmering.

Heat the olive oil in a large skillet with deep sides, then add the fresh tomatoes, onion, garlic, and basil. Let them soften and get fragrant for a few minutes and lightly mash the tomatoes to release their juices while you stir it. Then add in the tomato paste and wine and stir them in well. Let the wine cook off for another couple of minutes. Finally, add in the canned diced tomatoes, salt and pepper. Let it simmer and develop flavor.

When the meatballs are done, transfer them into the pan of sauce and let it all simmer together for another 30 minutes, stirring occasionally. When the 30 minutes is pretty much up, get a large pot of water on the stove for the zoodles and bring it to a boil. Boil the zoodles for just a minute or two until tender. Drain them and stir them into the sauce and meatballs for a minute. Then take the pan off the heat and serve immediately in bowls with more parmesan and chopped basil on top! Enjoy!
