SPICY THAI CHICKEN MEATBALLS

These are so juicy, and bursting with garlicky, spicy, savory goodness. They are super easy to make, and amazing over rice. They stay great for meal prep too! 

I used chicken, but you can make 'em with chicken, turkey, or beef if you prefer! 

Spicy Asian Chicken Meatballs

Makes 4 servings

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1lb ground chicken, turkey, or beef (I suggest using 93% lean as it's juicier and more flavorful. I found the 99% lean meat was to rubbery for these) 
  • 6-8 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 tablespoon minced or grated ginger
  • 2 tablespoons fish sauces 
  • 2 tablespoons chili-garlic sauce
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce

DIRECTIONS:

1. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees
2. Mix all ingredients together. Use your hands or a fork to really meld the ingredients into the ground meat.
3. Form balls with the meat.
4. Bake for about 10-15 mins until the meat is cooked through

GARNISH with chopped scallion + cilantro
SERVE with rice and veggies
