BBQ Chicken Meatballs
These BBQ Chicken Meatballs are one of my favorite easy party appetizers, but they also make a delicious dinner when served with a couple veggie sides!
Servings: 16 meatballs
- 1 lb. ground chicken
- 2/3 cup panko
- 1 large egg
- 2 Tbsp applesauce
- 1/3 cup diced onion (from 1 small onion)
- 1 tsp chili powder
- 1 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp paprika
- 2 Tbsp olive oil
- 1 cup barbecue sauce (I use Sweet and Spicy from Sweet Baby Ray)
In a large bowl, mix together ground chicken, panko, egg, applesauce, onion, chili powder, salt, and paprika until well combined.
Form golf ball-sized balls with the mixture.
Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add meatballs to skillet and cook on all sides until completely cooked through, 8-10 minutes.
Add the barbecue sauce to the skillet and continue cooking for another minute until the sauce reduces and begins sticking to the meatballs.
