Chicken Meatballs with Peanut Sauce
In a large bowl, combine chicken, bread crumbs, onion, red pepper, cilantro, egg, salt, cayenne and 1 teaspoon of the ginger. Mix well and form into 20 meatballs. Add 1 tablespoon of the oil to a large, lidded sauté pan over medium heat. Add half the meatballs and brown on all sides, 5 to 6 minutes total; remove to a plate. Repeat with remaining 1 tablespoon oil and remaining meatballs; set aside.Advertisement
