This is such an easy weeknight meal. It can be made in 30 minutes and is especially delicious served with mashed potatoes. Make sure to use fresh mozzarella as regular mozzarella will not have the same melting properties.

  • Combine ground chicken, bread crumbs, 4 tablespoons French onion soup mix, and pepper in a bowl; blend well. Cover and let mixture rest for 10 minutes.

  • Portion chicken mixture into balls using a 1 1/2-tablespoon scoop. Press a mozzarella ball into each chicken ball and roll between your hands to enclose the cheese. Place stuffed chicken balls onto the baking sheet.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until meatballs are lightly browned and cooked through, about 18 minutes.

  • Meanwhile, heat remaining French onion mix, water, and cream in a saucepan over medium-high heat. Cook until slightly thickened. Serve sauce over stuffed chicken balls.

Made this for my meatball hating family last week because I thought it looked great- they were asking me to make it again before the meal was over! Made it just as it's written, don't think I would change anything (except make lots more sauce!). The mozzarella stuffing is a neat touch, but it would have been just as good to top with shredded mozz. Don't overwork the meatballs and you'll have a great and surprisingly quick and easy meal that everyone will love. Read More

Hubby doesn't like ground chicken, so I was fearful, but I couldn't get past this recipe and I'm so glad I gave it a try. It's so simple yet so good! We didn't have French Onion mix so my first attempt was with a regular onion mix. The only change i made was to use a block of cheese instead of fresh balls. I waited until Hubby had cooed over it during dinner to tell him it was chicken. I think he's still in shock. Thanks so much for the recipe - we'll have it again with French Onion mix next time.

This came out amazing! I used Mexican sour cream in place of milk because that's all I had. Will make again! Read More
