Chicken Parmesan Muffins

Ingredients for:

1 lb ground chicken
1 egg yolk, lightly beaten
1/3 cup panko breadcrumbs
1 tsp olive oil
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 small onion, very finely minced OR grated
1 tsp dried basil
1/2 tsp dried thyme
1 tsp dried oregano
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp black pepper
2/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese, divided
4 oz fresh mozzarella, cut into cubes {1/2 cup shredded works too}
1/2 cup marinara sauce

Let’s Make It:

1) Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease a 12 cup muffin tin with cooking spray or use silicone liners.

2) In a small pan, heat 1 tsp oil over medium heat. Add onion and garlic and lightly sauté for 1-2 minutes. Allow to cool for 5 minutes.

3) In a large bowl, mix ground chicken, egg yolk, breadcrumbs, onion mixture, dried herbs, salt, pepper and 1/2 cup grated Parmesan together. Gently mix with hands. {You can use a spoon but, honestly, hands work the best}

4) Fill each muffin cup about 1/3 full with meat mixture. Place one cube of fresh mozzarella one top of meat mixture in each muffin cup. Then, evenly divide the remaining meat mixture on top of the mozzarella.

5) Cover the top of each “muffin” with marinara sauce and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.

6) Bake in preheated oven for 25-30 minutes or until fully cooked.

These muffins are definitely a favorite in our house. My husbands favorite dish is chicken Parmesan but I rarely have time to actually make it so these are a great substitute that I can make even on weeknights.
