Chicken Meatball & Veggie Stirfry


Let me just say that these chicken meatballs are my new favourite thing.

Let’s get rolling on with the healthy!


Firstly I like to make the chicken meatballs. Combine one pound of ground chicken with 2-3 cloves of minced garlic and some salt and pepper. Make 1 tbsp-large meatballs, frying in a pan with sesame oil.

While thats cooking, put on 1 cup of prefered rice. We had jasmine rice as a special treat (I find it’s quite expensive comparatively speaking). Next prepare the meatball glaze with 2 tbsp sesame oil, 2 tbsp soy sauce, a splash of lime juice and 1/2 tsp of brown sugar. Lastly roughly chop about 5-6 cups of perfered veggies. I used 1/2 a red onion, one red pepper, a handful of button mushrooms, a handful of green beans and 2 cloves of garlic, sliced.

Once the meatballs are cooked, toss in glaze for a few minutes, until well coated over medium heat. Remove from heat to not overcook the meat. Add the veggies into the pan with some of the glaze remaining to prevent burning. Cook until desired doneness, I left mine pretty crunchy. Toss meatballs back in and serve over rice! I like to serve with sesame seeds and extra soy sauce overtop!


Mhmm, guilt-free living 😉 !
