Meatballs are perhaps one of my favorite food items. Throughout the years I have had many different Italian-themed meatballs with a range of different meats paired with spaghetti. While these are fabulous, I definitely welcomed the idea of using chicken instead of pork and beef and having a different spin with a mix of ginger, garlic and scallions, and, of course, dipping them in some spicy hot sauce. This recipe for meatballs – Asian Chicken Meatballs (as labeled in the Food and Wine magazine) or Sesame – Ginger Chicken Meatballs – is a winner, so simple and one that I’ll definitely look to make again.
Step 1: Chop Scallions, Garlic
and Ginger; Add to Bread Crumbs
Step 2: Add Other Ingredients and
Mix in Ground Chicken
Step 3: Form Mixture into Small
Meatballs; Brush with Canola Oil
and Place onto Sheet to Bake
Step 4: Dip in Your Favorite
Hot Sauce and Eat!
As mentioned above, I absolutely loved the flavors of these meatballs. I don’t buy fresh ginger very often; however, I definitely think it is underutilized and an ingredient that needs to be incorporated into more into meals in the future.
