3 Ways To Eat Ginger Sesame Chicken Meatballs
- Serve these ginger sesame chicken meatballs on udon, soba or Shirataki noodles and steamed snowpeas or bok choy tossed in an Asian-inspired sauce (the sauce consists of a couple of spoonfuls each of peanut butter and soy sauce whisked with a spoonful of lime juice or rice vinegar and a drizzle of honey and sesame oil)
- Add the meatballs in a bowl with cooked brown rice, wilted spinach, corn and hot chicken broth ladled overtop
- As a lettuce wrap, rolled in green or red leaf lettuce leaves, along with a spoonful of hoisin sauce
For a bit of tart sweetness, fresh ginger can be replaced with 4 tsp (20 mL) chopped pickled ginger. For added crunch, stir ½ cup (125 mL) drained and finely chopped water chestnuts into the chicken meatball mix.
For added zing, add ½ tsp (2 mL) sriracha sauce, or to your liking.
