Preheat oven to 400 F. In a small bowl combine 1 cup panko, ¼ cup Parmesan and olive oil. Use a fork to combine and place in a shallow bowl.

In a separate bowl combine egg, chicken, onion, garlic, and remaining panko and Parmesan. Season chicken mixture with salt and pepper.

Form chicken mixture into 24 even balls, inserting a mozzarella cube in middle of each. Roll chicken in panko breadcrumbs and place each ball inside cup of a mini muffin tin.  Bake for 25-30 minutes then broil on high for 2-3 minutes until panko is golden. Let cool before removing from pan. Serve with marinara for dipping.
