Honey Chipotle Chicken Meatballs – Paleo and Gluten Free

Honey Chipotle Chicken Meatballs – Paleo and Gluten Free

honey chipotle chicken meatball paleo gluten free protein sweetI had to hurry to take pictures of these because I I couldn’t stop eating them. Heed my warning, these will go fast. These chicken balls are paleo, gluten free and low-carb. LOVE these balls!

honey chipotle chicken meatball paleo gluten free protein sweetI have to admit, I was skeptical when I saw the original recipe for turkey meatballs on MarthaStewart.com because the recipe didn’t call for any breading to bind the meatballs together.

I made some minor changes, used organic ground chicken and bam, it worked. It really worked. You just have to be a little gentle. I recommend reading the whole recipe through before starting.

I’m a greedy rabbit. I’ll eat these as a meal or as a quick protein snack on the go.

Recipe type: Paleo, Gluten Free, Low Carb, Protein
Ingredients
  • 1 pound organic ground chicken
  • ½ yellow onion, diced small
  • 4 Tablespoons raw honey
  • 2 Tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 - 2 Tablespoon adobo sauce (can sub with sriracha sauce)
  • 4 teaspoon cider vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon chipotle flakes seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic (I used the kind from a jar)
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt
  • ¼ teaspoon ground pepper
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 375. Either use a cast iron skillet that goes from stove top to oven or foil line a baking dish.
  2. In a large bowl combine ground chicken, onions, garlic, salt and pepper. Use your hands to combine everything together.
  3. Form into balls, set aside. This recipe yielded 16 balls for me.
  4. In a small bowl, whisk together raw honey, vinegar, adobe sauce and chipotle seasoning. The raw honey will liquefy after a minute or so, just keep stirring.
  5. Heat olive oil in a skillet on medium/high. (I used a cast iron skillet so I could use it on the stove top and move it directly to the oven but you could use regular skillet, just add another ½ Tablespoon of olive oil at a time to make sure the meatballs don't burn if not using a cast iron skillet).
  6. Once the oil is heated, place meatballs in pan and cook until they are browned all over. I cooked them on one side for about 6 minutes then using tongs, CAREFULLY flipped them over and cooked for another 6 minutes.
  7. After browning the meatballs, place them in your foil lined baking dish and bake for 5 minutes.
  8. Remove from oven and pour honey glaze over the top, coating each meatball.
  9. Bake for 4 minutes, flip, spoon liquid over meatballs and bake for another 4.
  10. Serve and hide the leftovers from everyone :)

Ever since being on vacation and missing my kitchen more than a normal person should, I have been needing to make a crock pot dish. Something about the crock pot makes me feel homey.

This super easy recipe has so much going for it. It has very few ingredients which of course warms my heart, paleo, protein dish, low-carb, and low calorie.

I made this and topped roasted brussel sprouts and added a slice of avocado and a squirt of lime over the top. Perfecto. I reheated the leftovers and had it in butter lettuce cups topped with a slice of avocado for a light lunch too.

Paleo Spicy Cashew Chicken

I was struttin’ around the kitchen like a friggin’ peacock after making this recipe because it was so good. I mean really good and it just happens to be paleo which is even better. Delicious, low-carb, protein AND paleo!

This recipe has a medium to medium-hot amount of heat. It’s absolutely the perfect amount of heat for me but then I like a good amount of spice. I use and love this red pepper seasoned rice vinegar that really gives it a good kick but if spicy isn’t your thing, I recommend using regular rice vinegarThat will help cut the heat in half.

I shared this with the hubby and before I could ask how much he liked it, it was gone. Like GONE GONE. All he could do is nod yes vigorously while he was still chewing his last bite. Needless to say, he loved it.
