Ingredients

1 1/4
pound ground chicken
1
egg
1
cup Progresso™ panko bread crumbs
1

Place the meatballs on a parchment-lined baking sheet for a quick bit of par baking. That means we're just gonna give them a pre-bake to make sure they stay all nice and shaped once they're stuck in the slow cooker. Don't worry; this part doesn't take more than 7 minutes.
