Instructions

Chicken Meatballs:

In a large bowl, combine all ingredients for meatballs and gently mix. Do not over-mix. Use a 1 1/2-inch scooper and scoop meatballs onto trays. Cook meatballs in a fry pan over medium heat until meat is browned and cook thoroughly. Set aside while you make the sauce.

Sauce:

In a large oven-proof deep skillet, melt butter over medium heat.

Add the garlic, Italian seasoning, red pepper flakes, and sundried tomatoes and cook over medium heat, stirring often for 2 minutes. Add the wine and cook for 2-3 minutes until mostly cooked down. Add the chicken broth, then slowly add the heavy cream and Parmesan and whisk until well combined. Continue to cook until sauce starts to thicken slightly, stirring occasionally.

Add the meatballs to the sauce and mix until the meatballs are well coated. Transfer the skillet to the oven and cook for about 10 minutes until the meatballs are heated through and the sauce is bubbly. Serve immediately.
