INSANITY RECIPES: Baked Chicken Meatballs with Whole Wheat Pasta | TheFitClubNetwork.comMeatballs do not have to be a chore to make and Insanity recipes can be absolutely delicious!

This is another one of the Insanity recipes that you can whip up quickly. You can make a single serving or make a big batch and freeze them. (Because we believe leftovers are your friends, we highly suggest the latter.)

For those of you doing Insanity, this is recommended for Meal 5 and can be easily modified to increase the calories. And, as with all of our recipes, it works for a variety of programs or anyone just wanting to eat it CLEAN.

If your grocery store doesn’t carry pre-packaged ground chicken, as the butcher to grind up some breasts for you. Or, you can just use lean ground turkey.

A little note about the side of whole grain pasta that’s served up with the meatballs in this Insanity recipe…

  • Whole grain (or whole wheat) pasta is made from flour that contains the entire grain kernel, the germ, endosperm and bran.
  • It’s packed with more nutrients than regular pasta, specifically B vitamins and minerals.
  • High levels of dietary fiber helps “regularity” and are purported to lower cholesterol and blood sugar, prevent cancer, and assists with weight management.
  • Whole grain pasta is a complex carbohydrate-rich food (about 37g in one cup of pasta), which is the preferred source of energy for your muscles, red blood cells and nervous system.
