Teriyaki Chicken Meatballs

My friend, Sophie, posted a teriyaki style meatball recipe recently on Facebook–and well that just got me totally craving teriyaki chicken meatballs.  So, I made some…low FODMAP style, of course.Teriyaki chicken meatballs

I have never been a fan of ground beef.  Not sure why that is but…it just never appealed to me. But, I love using ground chicken breast in its place, in recipes that call for ground beef. PLUS it’s leaner and better for us too! 🙂

This meatball recipe I whipped together using brown rice bread crumbs (wheat tolerant folks can use regular bread crumbs), an egg, some freshly grated ginger, soy sauce (use gluten free soy sauce if you are intolerant to gluten) and sesame oil.  A perfect blend of flavors for a tasty Asian style meatball.  Oh, and I added some green scallion slices too.  I simmered the meatballs in a flavorful sauce that included some fresh chopped red bell peppers and pineapple pieces.Teriyaki meatballs cookingI cooked up some microwavable rice (I sometimes get lazy!) and sprinkled toasted sesame seeds and scallion greens on top.  Really….how enticing are these meatballs?  Ready to dive in?  I am!Teriyaki meatballs get in my belly
