pound ground chicken
cup dry Italian seasoned bread crumbs
teaspoon kosher salt
teaspoon ground black pepper
teaspoon Italian seasoning, crushed
tablespoons olive oil
cup dry red wine
jar (23.5 ounces) Prego® Roasted Garlic Italian Sauce
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).
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.
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.
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.
