Orange Chicken Meatballs

Serves 4 (5 meatballs each)

All you need:

Meatballs:

1-pound ground chicken

1 egg

1/2 cup almond flour

1 teaspoon garlic powder

1 teaspoon onion powder

1 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

 

Sauce:

Zest and juice of 3 oranges

1/4 cup sweet chili sauce (I used Mae Ploy)

2 tablespoons reduced-sodium tamari (or soy sauce)

1 tablespoon rice vinegar

1 teaspoon sesame oil

1 teaspoon ground ginger

1 teaspoon garlic powder

1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes

Green onion, for garnish

All you do:

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees and line a large rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Combine meatball ingredients in a large bowl. Form the meatball mixture into 20 meatballs and place on the prepared baking sheet. Bake for 18-20 minutes, or until cooked through.
  3. Meanwhile, place the sauce ingredients in a large saucepan and whisk to combine. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low and continue to simmer while the meatballs cook.
  4. Place the cooked meatballs in the sauce and stir gently to coat. Transfer to a serving dish and garnish with green onion.
