step 1
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C) and line a sheet tray with a silicone mat.
step 2
Combine Ground Chicken (1 lb), Seasoned Breadcrumbs (4 Tbsp), Grated Parmesan Cheese (4 Tbsp), {@10:}, Minced Dried Onion (1 tsp), McCormick® Garlic Powder (1 tsp), Dried Thyme (1 tsp), Dried Parsley (1 tsp), Fresh Basil Leaves (5), Salt (1 pinch), and Ground Black Pepper (1 pinch) in a medium bowl and use your clean hands to just dive in and bring it all together into a uniform mixture.
step 3
Form the mixture into 20 or so smaller meatballs and lay them out on the sheet tray. Bake them for 20-25 minutes, until golden on the outside and cooked through. While they bake, get the sauce simmering.

step 6
Add in the Canned Diced Tomatoes (3 1/2 cups), Salt (1 pinch), and Ground Black Pepper (1 pinch). Let it simmer and develop flavor.

Drain them and stir them into the sauce and meatballs for a minute.
