I just love meatballs and these are a prefect spring dinner. I served over sauteed spinach and Oh my God amazing! These were ready in 30 minutes and a perfect one-pot dinner.

Recipe Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 4 leaves fresh sage
  • 1 pound ground chicken
  • 1 egg
  • ¼ cup almond flour
  • 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 teaspoon dried sage
  • 1 teaspoon dried parsley
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • ½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 (8 ounce) package sliced fresh mushrooms
  • 1 large shallot, minced
  • 1 cup low-sodium chicken broth
  • ⅓ cup Marsala wine
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 2 teaspoons arrowroot flour

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Swirl in olive oil and heat until very hot. Add sage leaves; fry until crisp, about 1 minute per side. Transfer sage leaves, using tongs, to a plate lined with paper towels. Remove skillet from heat, reserving oil.
  2. 2 Mix ground chicken, egg, almond flour, Parmesan cheese, sage, parsley, salt, and pepper together in a large bowl. Form into balls using an ice cream scoop, a tablespoon, or your hands.
  3. 3 Reheat oil in the skillet over medium heat. Cook meatballs until browned on all sides, about 7 minutes. Add mushrooms and shallot; cook until tender, about 5 minutes.
  4. 4 Stir chicken broth, Marsala wine, butter, and arrowroot flour into the skillet. Cover and cook, stirring once, until sauce thickens slightly, 5 to 7 minutes.

  1. I made these meatballs with beef and the only thing I changed was are used cornstarch they came out fabulous so delicious
  2. I should've followed my instincts more & the recipe less. It was pretty good but not worth the effort. I subbed with ground turkey. Added the egg & wondered why; had to add 1/4c breadcrumbs but it wasn't enough. Too soft so most fell apart I couldn't get myself to put sage in Chicken Marsala - Read more ...
  3. I liked this recipe a lot. Made it the second time without forming into meatballs just scramble frying the ground chicken. It is a nice quick dinner!
