Lean Turkey Meatballs tossed in a Honey Chipotle Sauce
Ingredients
  • 1½ lbs ground turkey
  • ½ yellow onion, diced small
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp ground pepper
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 1-2 tbsp chopped chipotles chiles in adobo sauce
  • 2 tsp cider vinegar
  • 1 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 375F. In a large bowl, mix turkey, onion, garlic, salt, and pepper until combined. Be careful not to overmix. Form into 16 meatballs.
  2. In a small bowl, combine honey, chiles, and vinegar.
  3. In a large ovenproof skillet, heat olive oil over medium-high. Add meatballs and cook until browned on all sides, 10-12 minutes.
  4. Transfer skillet to oven (or transfer meatballs to an oven-proof dish) and bake for 5 minutes. Remove from oven and pour honey mixture over the meatballs, swirling the skillet to coat. Bake an additional 5 minutes, until liquid is reduced and meatballs are glazed (swirl halfway through).
