A shortcut, leaner version of traditional meatballs, this recipe combines chicken, artichokes, cheese and fresh herbs to create an easy one pan dinner. If you like spice, add red pepper flakes to your meatball mix. For a heartier meal, serve with pasta or make them into subs on Italian bread with provolone or mozzarella cheese. Toast them in the oven until the cheese melts.

1 cup Artichoke Hearts (drained)

1/2 Yellow Onion

2 cloves Garlic

.5 oz Fresh Basil

1 lb ground Chicken

1/2 cup grated Parmesan Cheese

24 oz Marinara Sauce

1 tsp Salt

1/2 tsp Black Pepper

Olive Oil

Spaghetti, optional
