Chicken Marsala Meatballs With Squash Noodles 


  • 8 oz sliced cremini mushrooms, divided
  • 1 lb ground chicken
  • 1/3 cup whole wheat breadcrumbs
  • 1/4 cup grated Pecorino cheese
  • 1 large egg, beaten
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 Tbsp chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley, plus more for garnish
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 Tbsp all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 Tbsp unsalted butter
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped shallots
  • 3 oz sliced shiitake mushrooms
  • 1/3 cup Marsala wine
  • 3/4 cup reduced sodium chicken broth
  • 1 package butternut squash noodles, blanched


  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Finely chop half of the cremini mushrooms and transfer to a medium bowl with the ground chicken, breadcrumbs, cheese, egg, 1 clove of the minced garlic, parsley, 1 teaspoon kosher salt and black pepper, to taste. Gently shape into 25 small meatballs, bake until golden, 15-18 min.
  3. In a small bowl, whisk the flour with the Marsala wine and broth. Heat a large frying pan over medium heat. Add the butter, garlic and shallots and cook until soft and golden, about 2 min. Add the mushrooms, season with 1/8 teaspoon salt and a pinch of black pepper, and cook, stirring occasionally, until golden, about 5 min.
  4. Return the meatballs to the pot, pour the Marsala wine mixture over the meatballs, cover and cook 10 min. Garnish with parsley and serve with butternut squash noodles.
