Ingredients

  • 1 pound (455g) ground chicken
  • 2 cloves garlic , minced
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 cup (120ml) dried bread crumbs
  • 1/2 teaspoon (3ml) chili powder or chipotle powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon (3ml) smoked paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon (3ml) salt, or to taste
  • fresh cracked black pepper to taste
  • 1 cup (240ml) bbq sauce
  • 1/2 small onion , minced
  • 1/4 cup (60ml) vegetable oil

Instructions 

  • Make the chicken meatballs: In a large bowl, combine ground chicken, garlic, egg, bread crumbs, chili powder, smoked paprika, salt and pepper. Mix together well so that all ingredients are combined.
  • If needed, coat your clean hands with water or oil so meatballs don't stick to your hands. Roll about 1-2 Tablespoons of meatball mixture into a ball. Repeat for all of the meatball mixture. Chill the balls for about 15 minutes in fridge if you need to make them more firm.
  • In large pan over medium-high heat add oil. Add meatballs and brown them on all sides, about 5 minutes total. Remove meatballs and set aside.
  • In same pan, add minced onion and cook until translucent. Add meatballs back into the pan then add bbq sauce. If sauce is too thick, add about 1/2 cup of water or until it becomes the consistency that you like.
  • After sauce begins to simmer, lower heat, cover pan and gently simmer meatballs in bbq sauce for 15-20 minutes, or until meatballs are completely cooked.
  • Serve warm as appetizers or in a sandwich.
