These Chicken Marsala Meatballs are a fun twist in the classic dish! Great served over butternut squash or egg noodles.
Chicken Marsala Meatballs
I recently went to my local Italian specialty store and saw these behind the glass case, and knew I had to make them! Tommy’s not a fan of mushrooms so I wasn’t sure what he would think but he loved them! I sliced the mushrooms very thin which I highly recommend rather than buying them pre-sliced. They melt in you mouth!
I served mine over butternut squash noodles and regular noodles for the rest of the family. I attempted to make this in the Instant Pot, but they stuck too much to the bottom, so I baked them instead and finished them in a skillet – perfection!
How To Make Chicken Marsala Meatballs
A few more ways you can serve them:

- Roasted spaghetti squash makes a great low-carb noodle swap
- Serve them over mashed potatoes or cauliflower puree
