Ingredients
Meatballs:
  • 1 lb. ground chicken thighs (85% lean)
  • ½ cup chopped cilantro or parsley
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 1 tablespoon coconut flour
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper
Sauce:
  • 2 tablespoons unsweetened ketchup
  • 1 tablespoon pure maple syrup
  • 1 tablespoon reduced sodium soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • ¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a medium bowl, use your hands to mix together the meatball ingredients. Mixture will be sticky, but this ensures tender meatballs.
  3. With wet hands, form the mixture into 20 (1.5-inch, 1oz) meatballs. Place the meatballs on the prepared baking sheet, not touching each other. Bake 15 minutes.
  4. Meanwhile, in a medium saucepan, whisk together the sauce ingredients. 5 minutes before meatballs should be done, heat the sauce gently over medium-low heat.
  5. When meatballs are done, use tongs to transfer them to the sauce. Gently toss to coat. Serve immediately.
