Not into chicken? Substitute ground pork or a 50/50 mix of ground pork and ground beef.


  • 2 lbs. ground chicken
  • 1 tablespoon Better Than Bouillon (or other concentrated chicken stock)
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 knob ginger, minced (about 1 tablespoon)

  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 egg
  • Juice from 1 lime

  1. Mix all meatball ingredients together. Form into small balls and place on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Place meatballs in freezer for 20 minutes.
  2. Heat a bit of olive oil in a large frying pan over medium-high heat. Heat several meatballs at the same time, turning to brown evenly on all sides. Cook to an internal temperature of 165F.
