How to Make It

Step 1

Finely chop about half of one green pepper to make 1/2 cup chopped.  Cut the remaining green peppers into thin strips (about 1 1/2 cups strips).  Finely chop about half the onion to make 1/2 cup chopped.  Cut the remaining onion in half and thinly slice (about 1 cup sliced).

Step 2

Thoroughly mix the chicken, egg, bread crumbs, chopped green pepper and onion, salt, black pepper and Italian seasoning in a large bowl.  Shape the mixture firmly into 8 meatballs.

Step 3

Heat the oil in a 12-inch nonstick skillet over medium-high heat.  Add the meatballs and cook until browned on all sides.  Remove the meatballs from the skillet.

Step 4

Add the green pepper strips and sliced onion to the skillet and cook for 2 minutes, stirring occasionally.  Add the wine and heat to a boil.  Cook for 2 minutes.  Return the meatballs to the skillet.  Add the sauce and heat to a boil.  Reduce the heat to medium-low.  Cover and cook for 20 minutes or until the meatballs are cooked through, stirring occasionally.
