Teriyaki Chicken Meatballs

Teriyaki Chicken Meatballs | Homemade meatballs are a classic game day appetizer and so easy to prepare with only a handful of ingredients. The ground chicken in this recipe makes for lighter, leaner meatballs that are succulent and work perfectly with the teriyaki flavor. For a full meal instead of a finger food snack, serve them over noodles or rice for a weeknight dinner, or enjoy them with veggies & broth for a chicken noodle soup variation at lunchtime!
