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


  • 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


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
