TERIYAKI CHICKEN MEATBALLS
Show of hands, who thinks that meatballs are THE BEST party food?
Alright, let’s go through some of the classics that you usually find at parties. There are wings, nachos, burgers, sandwiches, meatballs, and dips. These seem to be the most popular finger foods and snacks that are found at parties, not counting chips of course. When planning my game day parties, I made sure to include 2 or 3 of those and especially the meatballs.
My classic meatballs are very popular at every party I’ve ever served them and boys LOVE my Taco Waffle Fries Nachos while watching a game. When it comes to dips, I am quite a sucker for a nice Queso Dip or any gooey Cheese Dip myself.
Taking all those amazing party foods in consideration, I still think that a party is not complete without some meatballs. It’s just such an easy dish to prepare and I don’t know a single person who can say “no” to some delicious meatballs. So for your next party, *cough* Super Bowl *cough*, make sure to make some of these Honey Garlic Teriyaki Chicken meatballs because they are BURSTING with flavor!
Or, don’t even wait for the next party, make some for dinner tonight and serve it with some fluffy rice and crispy green beans!
HOW TO MAKE CHICKEN MEATBALLS GLUTEN FREE
This recipe can easily be made gluten free. When preparing the meatballs, use bread crumbs that are gluten free. Be careful when buying ground chicken, check the ingredients and make sure that there is only chicken and no other additives.
There are brands that add rosemary and vinegar (and other ingredients) to their grown chicken and that ground chicken is not gluten free. When picking out the soy sauce, use the one that is marked gluten free.

Can you use frozen meatballs instead?
Yes, you can but you will need to thaw them out first. I hope you enjoy them!
how many meatballs is the nutritional facts based off of?
It is about 6 servings depending on how big you make them so that should give you an idea of how many are in each serving but I believe it was 3 or 4 meatballs.

Love this recipe! Mine are not as pretty as yours. But man they taste good!
Awe, Thank you, Dee!
These are delicious!
Thank you, Linda!
What can I use as an egg replacement?
Sorry for the late response. The egg is used as a binder to hold the meatballs together. Instead you could soak a slice of bread in milk, then squeeze out most the milk and use that to mash into the meatballs, making sure to mix very well. You could also you a tablespoon or two of mayo. Hope this helps!
Is it possible to assemble this dish completly cooked and then freeze it
Thank you.lm looking for shicken and fish dishes to cook and freexe
I would recommend freezing meatballs separately from the sauce.
You can find some tips for freezing meatballs here: https://www.willcookforsmiles.com/how-to-freezing-meatballs/
The sauce it quite easy to make so you can make it in a few minutes when needed. If you absolutely want to prepare it ahead of time, you can prepare it and freeze it in a separate freezer bag. Thaw the sauce and the meatballs in the fridge and then reheat them together in the pan, that way meatballs cook a little bit in the sauce.
I hope this helps!

How many meatballs does this recipe make? I see where it says it makes 18 to 20 servings. How many in a serving?
The new recipe software actually made it look like it’s servings on some of my old recipes instead of amount. It does make 18-20 meatballs. You can always make the meatballs a little bigger or a little smaller or even double the recipe.
Thank you so much!
Great recipe indeed. Thanks for a delicious meal. 🙂
Can you bake the meatballs instead? If so, what temperature would you suggest?
Hi Nicole! So sorry about the late response.
You can definitely bake them You can bake them until half way done, drain off the juice, and then add sauce and bake with sauce the rest of the way.
You can bake them at 350.

Is that 3/4 “CUP” of soy sauce?
Hi Val Birr! Yes, that is 3/4 cup soy sauce.
I hope you enjoy!
It definitely shouldn’t have been. I used 3/4 cup of soya sauce and I’ve been so sick ever since I ate! Absolutely disgusting lol
