Grate the broccoli stalk and Parmesan and add to a bowl, along with the panko and egg. Add the minced chicken, season as much or as little as you like.
Roll into small meatballs, you should get between 12-15.

Once the meatballs are golden then turn. When nicely coloured all round, cover them in a tomato sauce (recipe below) and place in the oven for 8-10 mins or until the meatballs are cooked.
Serve with some plain buttered pasta.
