Chicken Honey Sriracha Jalapeño Meatball Recipe

By: Fork & Stave

Y’all know that I love spicy things, so when this recipe formulated in my mind, I had to try it out.  The results are delicious…Sweet, Spicy, and Savory.

Ingredients:

  • 1 Pound Ground Chicken
  • 1 Egg Yolk, Beaten
  • 3 Tablespoons of Honey
  • 2 Tablespoons of Sriracha Sauce
  • 1.5 Cups of Italian Bread Crumbs
  • 3 Tablespoons of Red Pepper Flake
  • 3 Jalapeños, Stems Removed, Puréed with 1 Tablespoon Olive Oil (I like to use red and green)
  • 0.5 Cup of Grated Parmesan
  • 2 Tablespoons of Sea Salt and Black Pepper

 Step 1

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees

 Step 2

Combine all of the ingredients, listed above, together in a mixing bowl.  Mix with your hands until all of the ingredients are evenly combined.

 Step 3

Using a greased cupcake/muffin pan, portion out approximately 9 equally sized meatballs and place them into the holes.  The muffin pan will keep them from rolling around and will leave a great crust.

 Step 4

Place the meatballs into the 350 degree oven for 20 minutes.  At the end, turn on the broiler to crisp up the tops of the meatballs (usually takes about 3-5 minutes).

Serve with your favorite pasta or in a good soup.  We like serving ours with a cream sauce or in our Winter hominy soup.

 Cheers!
