Barbeque Chicken Meatballs recipe

This is a twist on the traditional meatball, same fun shape but deliciously different flavors. Serve made into sandwiches or with traditional BBQ sides like coleslaw and macaroni and cheese. Makes 12 meatballs.

Ingredients:

  • 1 pound ground chicken
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup breadcrumbs
  • 1/4 cup minced onions
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon dry mustard
  • 1/4 teaspoon celery salt
  • 3 cups barbecue sauce

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to broil.

  2. In a large bowl combine all the ingredients except the barbecue sauce.

  3. Loosely form into 1 inch size balls, do not pack tightly or they will be tough.

  4. Place in a baking dish in one layer and broil until browned, about 8 minutes.

  5. Turn the oven down to 300F. Pour the barbecue sauce over and continue cooking until cooked through, about 10 minutes.

  6. Serve hot.
