Chicken Meatballs with Thai Chili Sauce

I love to entertain. My goal at every gathering is to create a menu unique to the occasion.  Sometimes that includes preparing foods with my gluten-free and dairy-free guests in mind. Chicken Meatballs with Thai Chili Sauce is a recipe you can easily alter for your guests with food intolerance’s by using gluten-free bread crumbs and omitting the Parmesan cheese.

The meatballs are easy to make, bakes in 20 minutes, and a delicious choice for an appetizer or meal. I pack the meatballs with onions, breadcrumbs, parsley and Parmesan cheese for tons of flavor, but the sauce takes this dish to the next level of deliciousness. I like to make a double batch of sauce for dipping the meatballs in.  The delightful combination of slightly sour, lightly spicy, and perfectly sweet has a nice balance of each flavor.

I hope you enjoy this recipe! If you’ve made it please share it with me by tagging @culinary.butterfly on Instagram or @culinarybutterfly on Pinterest, or by using the hashtag #culinarybutterfly on Facebook

Recipe Notes

Idea!
I like to double my sauce so I can use half to pour or spoon over meatballs, and the other half as a dipping sauce.
