Sweet & Spicy Chicken Meatballs


For the Meatballs

  • 1 pound 99/1 ground chicken
  • 1/3 cup yellow onion, finely diced
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/4 cup white whole-wheat flour
  • 1/3 cup rolled oatmeal
  • 1 tablespoon sriracha
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground pepper
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic

For the Kung Pao Sauce

  • 1/4 cup reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons sriracha
  • 2 tablespoons chili paste
  • 2 tablespoons honey


Preheat oven to 400ºF, and coat a baking sheet with cooking spray. Set aside.

Place meatball ingredients into a large bowl, and mix until combined.

Using a tablespoon-size cookie scoop, scoop out mixture and mold into a ball with your hands (Tip: It works best if your hands are slightly wet.) Place on baking sheet.

Bake meatballs at for 25–28 minutes, or until the top begins to turn golden brown and are cooked through.

Meanwhile, mix kung pao sauce ingredients together in a small bowl.

Once the meatballs have slightly cooled, toss in sauce. Serve hot!
