Chicken Meatballs:

  • 1 lb ground chicken
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup bread crumbs
  • 1/2 small yellow onion
  • 3 garlic cloves
  • Salt
  • Fresh cracked black pepper
  • 2 Tbsp chopped chives
  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil for cooking

Teriyaki Sauce:

  • 2 Tbsp rice vinegar
  • 3/4 low sodium soy sauce
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 6 garlic cloves
  • 1 tsp grated ginger


  1. Combine all ingredients for chicken meatballs in a mixing bowl and mix well, until all evenly combined.
  2. Preheat a medium cooking pan over medium pan.
  3. Roll meatballs that are about 1-inch in diameter. Add vegetable oil to the pan and add meatballs. Cook meatballs, covered, for about 7 minutes and turn them over. Keep cooking the meatballs uncovered until almost done but not completely.
  4. Whisk all ingredients for teriyaki sauce in a bowl and add the sauce to the pan with meatballs.
  5. Cook until the meatball are done.
  6. Take out meatballs and set aside.
  7. Simmer the sauce until some liquid is reduced.
  8. Mix meatballs with the teriyaki sauce.
  9. **Notes: if using regular soy sauce and not low sodium soy sauce, use 1/2 cup soy sauce and 1/4 cup chicken stock. Regular soy sauce is much much more salty that low sodium.
  10. **Gluten-Free Notes: To make these meatballs gluten free, use gluten free bread crumbs and use gluten free soy sauce. Gluten free soy sauce is as salty as regular soy sauce, so use 1/2 cup GF soy sauce and 1/4 cup chicken stock.
