Confetti Chicken Meatballs

Yield: 22 meatballs
Prep Time: 20 minutes
Cook Time: 40 minutes
Total Time: 1 hour

Frying the meatballs briefly before baking ensures a crispy golden brown crust.


  • 1 lb ground chicken
  • 1/3 cup chopped red onion
  • 1/3 cup diced red bell pepper
  • 2 cups packed spinach, chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, finely minced
  • 1 small knob ginger, finely minced
  • 1 tablespoon coconut aminos (or soy sauce)
  • Juice from 1/2 lime
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • Oil, for frying
  • Green onion, for topping
  • Sriracha mayonnaise, for serving


  1. Preheat oven to 400F.
  2. Mix all ingredients in a large bowl.
  3. Take a tablespoon of chicken mixture and form into a ball. Repeat with remaining chicken.
  4. Heat a tablespoon of oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Place a few meatballs in the pan at a time to brown. Rotate the meatballs to ensure even browning, cooking for no more than 2 minutes. Repeat with remaining meatballs.
  5. Place meatballs on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes, until chicken is cooked through (165 degrees).
