Extremely flavorful asian chicken meatballs are covered in a spicy kung pao sauce!
When I made these, I wasn't expecting great things. I thought that they would be awesome, but the amount of deliciousness that is these little bites waaaay exceeded my expectations! The meatballs have delicious asian flavors with a little zing from the addition of a little ginger and crushed red pepper.
The star of the show here though is my simple secret to extraordinary flavor.. the NEW P.F. Chang's® Home Menu sauces! They are absolutely delicious and help you to simplify Asian cuisine so you can skip the take-out and make tasty dishes in your own home! This Kung pao flavor is my favorite. Such a nice sweet and spicy kick!
How to make Kung Pao Chicken Meatballs:
- Add all of the ingredients to a bowl and mix them up with your hands distributing them all evenly.
- Scoop and roll them into about 17-18 little balls.
- Bake on a foil-lined greased baking sheet until cooked through completely.
- Take your hot meatballs and throw them into a bowl. Pour some of your P.F. Chang's® Kung Pao sauce over them and toss those little delicious nuggets in there until completely coated.
You can serve them in a big dish and scoop them out to eat or you can get all fancy and cute by adding a toothpick in each one and serve them on a platter for a fun appetizer!
