Glazed Meatballs Recipe

These glazed meatballs are delicious served on a bed of colorful rice or with noodles.


1 lb ground chicken
1/2 cup onion, finely chopped
1/4 cup water chestnuts, finely chopped
2 Tablespoons soy sauce
2 eggs
1 cup breadcrumbs
salt and pepper to season (about 1/2 teaspoon of each)
2 Tablespoons oil

1/2 cup water
1/4 cup cornstarch
1 cup pineapple juice
1 cup chicken broth
1/2 cup vinegar
1/3 cup sugar
1 Tablespoon soy sauce
2 Tablespoons fresh ginger, minced


In a large mixing bowl, combine water chestnuts, onions, ground chicken, soy sauce, eggs and bread crumbs, salt and pepper.

Mix well and shape into small meat balls.

Heat oil in a wok or frying pan to medium heat, cook meatballs until well browned and cooked through.

Remove the meatballs into a bowl, and set aside.


In a medium sized bowl use a whisk to combine the water, cornstarch, pineapple juice, broth, vinegar, sugar, soy sauce and ginger.

Pour glaze mixture into the wok, stir constantly until glaze boils and thickens.

Add chicken meatballs back to thicken the glaze and simmer 10 minutes, and be sure to stir occasionally.
