Chicken Meatballs with Peanut Sauce


I love meatballs!  Doesn’t really matter what kind of meat it is, I just love meatballs.  Unfortunately my husband doesn’t share my passion for balls of meat.  Not really sure why, what is not to love.   I sneak them in sometimes, trying different versions hoping to find one that does it for him.  Most are Italian based, and maybe that is where I went wrong.  I have tried a couple Mexican versions, but they have turned out bland.  So when I saw this Asian version in Everyday with Rachael Ray I was excited!  Why didn’t I think of this sooner?   Needless to say, Racheal came through for me on this one.  He liked them, and he said he would like it if I made them again!!  I will change the sauce next time,  but the ball itself was perfect! 

These were written with a Sweet Peanut Sauce, which is what I made.  It was good, but next time I am going to do a Spicy Peanut Sauce.  I was hoping that my son would eat these as well, and like the sauce, so I didn’t want to spice it up the first time.  Next time, I will do some of each. 

Chicken  Meatballs with a Sweet Peanut Sauce
Recipe from Everyday with Rachael Ray

1 pound ground chicken
1/4 cup chopped cilantro
¼ cup dried breadcrumbs
¼ cup grated onion
2 cloves garlic, grated
1 tsp salt
½ tsp pepper
2 Tbls Canola Oil
¼ cup peanut butter
2 Tbls Soy Sauce
3 Tbls Sugar
2 Tbls Sesame Oil
Chopped Peanuts for garnish


Mix chicken, cilantro, breadcrumbs, onion, garlic, salt and pepper.  Roll into about 1 inch balls.  Heat the oil in a skillet over medium heat.  Cook the meatballs until they are cooked through, about 10 minutes.  

 

While they are cooking, you can make the sauce.  Mix the remaining ingredients together in a small bowl.  Microwave for few seconds to get it warm.  Stir together. 

 

Toss the meatballs with half of the sauce, reserving the other ½ for dipping.  Sprinkle with the chopped peanuts. 


Serve on toothpicks with the remaining sauce!

I love the chicken meatball idea but think I'd have to do a soy/ginger sauce instead of peanut. We've learned that we don't like peanut sauce, unfortunately. The chicken meatballs though; those look fantastic.

I'd love to dip my finger in that peanut sauce right about now! :D

Your result looks just amazing. They look so good (even though I have to admit I would have to swap the peanut butter for a different ingredient - peanut butter is one of those things that you either love or hate ... I'm neutral, but no one in my family loves it) - I love your idea of turning the chicken into meatballs.

The sauce sounds great, but I love the idea of a spicy sauce too. I need to try this soon. Thanks for sharing your recipe.

I love meatballs too and lucky for me so do my kids and husband. Great Job. These look fantastic. : ) PS.. I agree, a spicy peanut sauce would be better with these.

I am also a huge fan of meatballs. Actually, I love anything that is bite-size! :) I'm with you on the spicy peanut sauce...the sweet sauce would be too much for me.

Never would think to pair meatballs with peanut sauce. I'm intrigued!

Erin, these looks so good. I may try them with the spicy peanut sauce used in the noodle bowl I have posted. I use light coconut milk as the base, a ton of fresh garlic and hot pepper flakes along with some soy. Happy you found a ball your husband can live with :)

These look so incredibly good! Perfect finger food for a party!

I like the idea of chicken meatballs instead of the usual grilled chicken skewers with a peanut sauce! I've got another great peanut sauce recipe if you'd like to try another, it's a traditional singapore/malaysia satay peanut sauce!
