Sticky Ginger-Orange Chicken Meatballs Meal Prep

Ingredients

Meatballs:

  • 1 1/4 lb. Ground Chicken, (substitute with ground beef or ground turkey)
  • 3 Green Onions, (chopped)
  • 1 1/2 inch Fresh Ginger, (grated or finely minced)
  • 2 Garlic Cloves, (grated or finely minced)
  • 1 tsp. Salt
  • 1 tsp. Black Pepper

Sticky Sauce:

  • 1 tbsp. Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 1/3 cup Low-Sodium Soy Sauce
  • 1/3 cup Orange Juice
  • 2 tbsp. Honey
  • 1 tbsp. Apple Cider Vinegar
  • 2 tsp. Crushed Red Pepper Flakes
  • 1 tsp. Flour

Instructions

Meatballs:

  1. Preheat oven to 450F. Grease or line a baking pan with parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl, add together all the meatball ingredients. Use your hands to mix together just until combined.
  3. Make the meatballs (about 1-2 tablespoons of mixture per meatball), then evenly spread them out on the prepared baking pan.
  4. Bake for 10-15 minutes, until fully cooked (internal temperature reaches 165F).

Sticky Sauce:

  1. In a large pot over medium high heat, whisk together all ingredients. Bring to a boil, then whisk until thick, about 3-4 minutes.
  2. Add the cooked meatballs into the sticky sauce over medium heat. Toss the meatballs in the sauce for 2-3 minutes, until generously coated in the sticky sauce.
  3. Serve warm or allow the meatballs to cool completely before packing away. Enjoy!
