Make Over Monday

I wanted to try this recipe but decided to lighten it up a bit.  It was really good and will definitely be made again very soon!   Here is the original recipe I found on Spend With Pennies.  I served mine with rice instead of noodles.




1 lb. ground chicken

1 egg

¾ cup panko breadcrumbs

2 garlic cloves, minced

1 teaspoon dried parsley flakes

½ cup grated reduced fat Parmesan Cheese

Salt and pepper


Pam Olive Oil cooking spray

3 tbsp. butter

2 tbsp. all-purpose flour

1 cup chicken broth

1 cup 1% milk

¼ cup lemon juice

In a large bowl add the ingredients to make the meatballs.  I like my meatballs on the small side I made approximately 25-28 meatballs.   Brown meatballs in a large pan in Pam Olive Oil Cooking Spray.    Melt butter in same pan and add flour making a roux.  Add chicken broth stir until thickened.  Add milk and lemon juice and  bring to a simmer and simmer 15-20 minutes covered allowing sauce to thicken and meatballs to cook thru.  Serve over rice or noodles.
