Are you looking for an easy, delicious new dinner? You have found it here at J.O. Spice! This chicken meatball recipe is AWESOME and it’s equal parts because of the spices you add to the meatballs and the strawberry jalapeno bbq sauce you simmer the meatballs in at the end of the cooking process. 🙂
You will need 1 jar of McCutcheon’s Strawberry Jalapeno BBQ sauce ~ can be bought online – jospices.com
1lb ground chicken
1 tsp. J.O. Ground Mustard
1 tsp. J.O. Cracked Pepper
1 tsp. Italian Seasoning
2 tbsp. J.O. Cracker Meal
Spritz of Worcestershire Sauce
Mix the ground chicken with the spices, cracker meal, egg and Worcestershire sauce. Form into meatballs. Make them as big or as small as you like – I did about 30 so mine was more in the medium range then too big or too small.
Bake at 350 for about 30 minutes (I bake them because my Crock-Pot doesn’t have that ability and I like to have some color and crunch to my meatballs and if I were to just set inside the crock pot, they wouldn’t cook right.) When I tested my meatballs with a thermometer, they were reading 145 so not completely done so don’t eat right out of the pan unless you cook them for another 15-30 minutes or until you get a reading of at least 170.
Then add to a crock-pot or a pot where you can simmer them in the Strawberry Jalapeno BBQ sauce for an additional 30-45 minutes until heated and cooked all the way through.
It’s the right spice, the right heat and the right sweetness that makes dinner so delightful. Serve on a nice piece of sourdough or pasta. Add a salad and the meal is sure to satisfy!
