Chicken Parmesan Meatball Skillet - The Southern Lady Cooks


This Chicken Parmesan Meatball Skillet is perfect for a busy night! It’s really easy to make and comes together quickly. We love to serve this dish over rice or pasta, but honestly the meatballs are just as good on their own.  It also reheats really well so you can enjoy this one for a few nights. Add these easy rolls and breadsticks!

Chicken Parmesan Meatball Skillet Ingredients Needed:

Ground Chicken

Bread Crumbs

Parmesan Cheese, shredded

Dried Oregano

Dried Basil

Minced garlic


Canned Crushed Tomatoes

Mozzarella or Italian Cheese

Oil for pan

As you can see it’s not very many ingredients and most of them you probably have on hand. I make this dish in an iron skillet since this will go in the stove for about 10 minutes. If you do not have an oven safe skillet, you can make it on top of the stove then transfer it to an oven safe dish.

If you love this easy dish you will also love our Hamburger Goulash. It’s a very popular recipe and super easy too!
