Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Spray jelly roll pan with non-stick vegetable spray.

In medium bowl, blend together ground chicken, bread crumbs, eggs, pumpkin pie spice, 2 teaspoons salt and half (one-eighth cup) chopped parsley. Knead mixture with hands until it is smooth. Wet hands and form mixture into meatballs, each about 1 1/2 inches in diameter. Place meatballs on prepared jelly roll pan; bake in oven for 10 minutes.
