  • Summary

    Chicken thighs have a bit more fat than breasts and are the best for making juicy, flavorful meatballs. If you prefer, you can substitute ground dark-meat (7% fat) turkey for the chicken thighs, and skip step 1 of the recipe.

    Ingredients

    • 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken thighs, cut into chunks
    • 1 slice white sandwich bread, crumbled
    • 1/4 cup milk
    • 1 large egg white
    • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
    • 3/4 teaspoon dried oregano
    • Coarse salt and ground pepper
    • 1 tablespoon olive oil
    • 1 can (28 ounces) whole tomatoes in puree
