These Asian-inspired meatballs are flavorful, saucy, and easy to make! Serve them as a main dish over rice or as an appetizer for your next get-together with friends.
My sister recently shared with me the healthy chicken meatballs she has been making and I was inspired to create something similar: meatballs that are full of flavors, yet healthy at the same time! I don’t usually cook with ground chicken, since it can taste a bit bland as compared to ground pork or beef, but with the sesame oil, ginger, garlic, and scallions that are mixed into the meatballs in this recipe, they are bursting with delicious flavors.
These Asian-flavored hoisin meatballs make a great main dish when served over rice, and they can also be great served as appetizers. If you’re serving a big crowd, you can double (or triple!) the recipe, bake them in the oven, and keep them warm with the sauce in a crockpot on low. Whenever I’m serving meatballs straight from the crockpot, I’d thin out the sauce slightly with some water or chicken broth since the sauce tends to thicken up over time.
I served them with brown rice and sauteed kale for dinner and even enjoyed the leftovers as lunch the next day! This is definitely a quick, no-fuss recipe that you’ll want to come back to again and again.
