Chicken Meatball Subs

Chicken Meatballs

slighly adapted from How Sweet It is

1 pound ground chicken

2 tablespoons whole wheat bread crumbs

1 teaspoon garlic powder

½ teaspoon salt

½ teaspoon pepper

¼ teaspoon smoked paprika & ¼ tsp. regular paprika (1/2 tsp. all smoked was a little too smokey for me)

1 tablespoon worcestershire sauce

1 tablespoon olive oil

Preheat Oven to 350 degrees

Heat skillet on medium heat. Add one tablespoon olive oil.

Mix chicken with remaining ingredients. Form into meatballs about 1 1/2 inches thick. Brown in pan on all sides. Place in pan and bake for an additional 6-8 minutes until cooked through. *** you could brown these all the way through in the skillet but I I wanted to make sure they were cooked all the way, but make sure they dont dry out. You could also throw them into the sauce and let them finish cooking perking away there as well.

Makes about 8-10 meatballs.

Meatball Subs

4 whole wheat buns

1 cup tomato sauce

4 ounces low-fat, shredded mozzarella cheese or provolone

Add 2-3 sliced meatballs to each bun, topping with a 1/4 cup of tomato sauce each. Preheat the broiler and top hoagies with one ounce of cheese each. Place under broiler until cheese is melted and bubbly, about 1-2 minutes.
