Stacked Up

I had both zucchini and ground chicken that needed to be dealt with before going over the edge, so on the verge of the weekend, after wrestling my email to a draw, I got busy making these chicken meatball stackers.

I started by mixing the ground chicken with shredded mozzarella, panko bread crumbs, salt, pepper and Italian seasoning. I got them started cooking in some olive oil, garlic and finely chopped basil. At the same time I caramelized four thick slices of zucchini in olive oil and cooked them till soft and set aside.

After the meatballs were cooked through I set them aside also and deglazed the pan with red wine and then added a huge tomato from the farm stand that I had rough chopped. I put some extra garlic in also.

I cooked the tomatoes until I had a thickened sauce and the added a tiny bit of cream to smooth out the taste. 

Stack a meatball on each slice of zucchini and top with a bit of buffalo mozzarella and then give it a little melt under the broiler. Finally, top  with the tomato sauce !
