Chicken Meatballs

1 ½ lbs organic ground chicken (Whole Foods & Woodman’s has organic)

½ cup onion, diced small

1/3 cup green pepper, diced small (optional)

¼ cup ketchup (I use Hunt’s with No Corn Syrup)

¼ cup brown rice crumbs (I use Erewhon rice krispy cereal crushed)

1 tsp honey

½ tsp garlic powder

¾ tsp chili powder

¾ tsp cumin (can use less if you want it less spicy)

½ tsp ground coriander

½ tsp sea salt

½ tsp paprika

¼ tsp ground cloves

¼ tsp pepper

Combine all ingredients in a large bowl and mix, then add the ground chicken and work the mixture through.  Using your hands, create 1 ½ inch meatballs.  Place on a  9x13 greased baking dish (may need two).  Bake at 400 degrees until moist and golden brown, about 30-40 minutes.   Freeze any leftovers. 

I double this recipe b/c ground chicken comes in 1 lb packages and I hate doing math.  J 

I really like this recipe, but my kids say it’s too spicy.  My toddler likes them though.  We dip in ketchup.  I prefer it without the green pepper, but it tastes good with or without.

  1. Thanks for the shout-out for us on the "organic chicken" comment :) We can only assume that you shop at Woodman's then ;)

    Thanks again and have an awesome day!
