Here is the link for Karen's post on how to make this scrumptious soup Karen's Italian Wedding Soup
Now in her recipe she says you can use any homemade meatballs. So I used my chicken meatballs. I thought I would share that recipe with you guys. They are supper easy and very versatile. I use them for spaghetti, meatball subs, Swedish meatballs, and now Italian Wedding soup.
1 pound Ground chicken
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
1/4 shredded Parmesan cheese
1 cup breadcrumbs
( I prefer to make my own but the choice is yours)
1 egg, beaten
Any Italian seasoning you like - about a teaspoon or so
(this is to your liking..I usually just do some oregano and fresh sweet basil)
Kosher salt & pepper to taste
Optional..Chopped Roasted Red Bellpeppers
Mix all ingredients in a bowl (I use my hands here) Form into meatballs and lightly brown on all sides in a shallow pan with a little cooking oil. I use canola, and then slow cook in sauce or soup of your choice. You could also bake these...I am unsure of temps and time but I am sure it is possible. Whichever method you choose make sure they are done...they are chicken after all. I prefer mine cooked low and slow in sauce or soup. These are great in the crock pot (browned first of course). They are so tender and filled with cheesy goodness.
I will note this about the soup....Karen warned me. She said to make sure to make the meatballs on the smaller side. I think I still made mine to big. Next time, for the soup, I will only use a little over a half a teaspoon for each meatball. Oh and because I love spinach I added extra to my soup. Horrible secret.... I have had it for lunch and uh...breakfast for the last two days. Isn't that horrible... breakfast. I couldn't help myself. LOL It is SO GOOD!
So thank you Karen for sharing an awesome recipe! Everyone should check it out and her blog. She has some really yummy recipes. ;)
