Baked Teriyaki Chicken Meatballs

I served these Teriyaki Chicken Meatballs as one of the appetizers on New Years Eve.  These bite size meatballs are packed with flavor.  Thank you very much Soy Vay for your amazing Veri Veri Teriyaki sauce.  They vanished so quickly my daughter didn't even have the chance to taste one.  You can substitute the ground chicken for ground turkey or beef.  We liked them best when we used the ground chicken.  They were tastier and juicier.  I know I put that the dipping sauces are optional but you must try it with the sweet chili sauce! 

Prep time:  20 minutes
Cooking time:  40 minutes
Yield:  60 meatballs

2-1/2 lbs. ground chicken
1 cup Veri Veri Teriyaki Sauce
2 scallions, minced
1 tablespoon black sesame seeds
2 cloves garlic, through garlic press or minced
1/4 teaspoon crushed black pepper
3/4 cup panko bread crumbs

Preheat oven to 375°F.
Add all ingredients to large bowl and mix well.  Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Form bite size meatballs and place on parchment paper.
Bake for 40 minutes.  Transfer to serving tray with toothpicks.
Optional - Serve with dipping sauces (as seen in photo above): Sweet Chili Sauce and/or Sesame Garlic Glaze.

    Do you have the recipe posted for the dipping sauce? I can't wait to make these!


  5. @ anonymous from 1/9 comment... the sweet chili sauce you can buy in the Asian aisle of your local supermarket. I use the Maggi brand. Taste of Asia. The mild one. The sesame garlic glaze is the Iron Chef brand. There are such great products out there... sometimes it pays not to recreate a recipe. I think you will love them both... and use them in many of my recipes, which you will notice. Thanks for leaving a comment and would love feedback after. xo

    I'm following WW and I need to make these as low in points as possible. Is there something I can substitute for the black sesame seeds?

  7. Hello Anonymous... Regarding your WW question. You can leave them out completely. This will eliminate the fat and calories. Besides the Teriyaki Sauce has the white sesame seeds in them. The recipe also calls for panko breadcrumbs. you can probably cut down 1/4 cup and see how it comes out. if you use turkey you can probably eliminate the panko altogether, but I wouldn't suggest cutting it out completely with the ground chicken. Hope this helps. xo
