Sweet & Sour Chicken Meatballs

wpid-20150719_202422.jpg

Here is a neat twist on the classic take on meatballs by using chicken instead, and they are amaaaaazing! I got the recipe out of one of my Kraft What’s Cooking magazines from last year. I’ve never made meatballs from scratch before, and I found the process of forming them out of the raw ground chicken a little bit gross at first. I am not a fan of touching raw meat, but this time it wasn’t anything I couldn’t handle. This recipe is super easy to make and has a great pop of flavour. I highly recommend you give it a try if you are a fan of sweet and sour chicken!

Ingredients

2 lb. (900 g) ground chicken

1 pkg. (120 g) Stove Top Lower Sodium Stuffing Mix for Chicken

1 onion, finely chopped

1 cup water

2 eggs

2 tsp. oil

1 each red and yellow pepper, cut into 1-inch pieces

2 cloves garlic, minced

1 tsp. minced gingerroot

3/4 cup Kraft Catalina Dressing

1/2 cup Bull’s-Eye Bold Original Barbeque Sauce

1 can (14 fl oz/398 ml) pineapple chunks in juice, undrained

2 green onions, cut into 1-inch lengths

Directions
