Hi friends!

I first shared these Thai Chicken Meatballs over three years ago. Back in the days when I only had one kid and I thought it was hard to eat lunch because I was so busy. I have no doubt that I was busy back then, but suffice it to say that I am no less busy now, and I’m still struggling to eat lunch. So, over the years these meatballs have remained a favorite of mine. 

I love them because they taste even better as leftovers so I make a batch or double batch during food prep and enjoy them all week They also taste equally good hot or cold. Since lunchtime is a bit crazy around here, I love that I can just grab and eat them without having to worry about a microwave, or even a fork most days. I eat them without dipping sauce but you could definitely mix together some ketchup, sriracha and chili sauce for a fun dip!

If you’re not quite as pressed for time as I am, you can serve them warm with rice and veggies and actually sit down and eat them with a fork!

Here’s how you make them:

Ingredients

  • 1 pound ground chicken
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tsp fresh ginger, grated

Notes

Adjust the amount of ginger and sriracha based on how much you like those flavors.
Meatballs may stick slightly to the foil but with a firm spatula you should be able to cleanly get under them and turn them halfway through

Like I mentioned, it’s super easy to double the recipe to have extras or freeze some for later.

(Apparently I think all meatballs should be served with broccoli).
