This dish is so flexible it may just make it onto your meal schedule routinely as it is so flavorful that you’ll want to enjoy it again and again!

I often order chicken satay with peanut dipping sauce when I go out, I love the extra boost of protein and it’s SO tasty!

I thought I’d add those same great flavors to chicken meatballs and serve them with a peanut dipping sauce.

It’s great on its own as an appetizer or as a main dish, just add some rice. You can serve it with raw or sauteed veggies.

Be sure to print both recipes as you’ll need most of the ingredients that go into the meatballs to make the sauce.

I’m so happy to see the grocery stores selling more ground chicken, it wasn’t always easy to get. I did buy this meat grinder and I’d would just buy a large package of boneless skinless chicken breasts and grind my own in previous years. It’s still the most economical way to get ground chicken.

Once I bake the meatballs I take some of the sauce and spread it over the meatballs with a silicone brush. The sauce will melt onto the meatballs nicely while they are warm, I still have enough sauce to dip into. If you want a lot of sauce, make a double batch.

If you have leftover sauce, feel free to pour it over pasta and cut up some meatballs and add the raw veggies and WHAMO, you have a great cold noodle meal for the next days lunch.
