Italian Chicken Meatballs #SundaySupper

Italian Chicken Meatballs

Italian Chicken Meatballs tempt your guests with Asiago cheese and Italian herbs rolled into flavor-filled ground chicken. Perfect for awards night or family dinner.

This week Sunday Supper is straightening our bow ties and dusting off our Top Hats!

It’s Awards season and we want to look our best!

I just got an invitation through the mails:
“Your presence requested this evening,
It’s formal, a top hat, a white tie and tails. “
Nothing now could take the wind out of my sails.
Because I’m invited to step out this evening
With top hat and white tie and tails.

Well maybe we can skip the formal dress. We are not skipping on fancy appetizers!

Elegant apps are festive fun no matter which kind of party you throw. You can do so much with a few good appetizers to set the atmosphere for awards time. Here’s some ideas:

  • Base your small plate affair around the nominees.
  • You can recreate foods from the films.
  • Do a little research on the vying actors’ favorite foods.
  • Maybe have your guests “vote” for their favorite appetizer with their empty picks placed in the appropriate discard bag.

Whatever way you choose to match your meal to your party, remember to enjoy yourself. It’s YOUR party too!

Thank you Wendy from Wholistic Woman   for hosting our event!

Italian Chicken Meatballs show off your taste for International flair. Flavored with nutty, sweet hand-grated Asiago cheese, fresh Italian flat-leaf parsley, robust dried rosemary, thyme, basil and marjoram. Soft Panko breadcrumbs and olive oil balance these flavors.

  20. Applause, applause, applause, Cindy! If I ever have an awards show party, I’m definitely following your tips. Your Italian meatballs are pretty stellar too =) P.s. Sooooo glad someone still remembers Fred Astaire…It was a thrill of a lifetime when I bumped into him outside of a Beverly Hills post office decades ago.

    Meatballs are a must and the flavors in this chicken meatballs sounds delish. Thanks for sharing those party tips, Cindy. I especially like the idea of making recipes that go with the movies or the actor’s favorite foods and ‘voting’ for your fave with the picks. So fun!
