Sriracha Chicken Meatballs

Oh my gosh, my new Sriracha Chicken Meatballs are LIFE. I made a double batch of these and served for dinner then saved the rest for meals throughout the week. I could literally eat them every single day of the week. THEY ARE SIMPLY INCREDIBLE! It is also Keto, Whole30, Paleo and Macro friendly.

Additionally, these freeze well. If I get to the end of the week and still have meatballs left, I will throw in the freezer and they will last up to 3 months. I simply thaw them and reheat and they are the perfect easy grab and go protein option. They even serve as a great snack in between meals. I will heat up a couple in between lunch and dinner and it fills me up and helps me get in all my protein for the day.

  • These look amazing but I will have to wait until after my whole30 since I cannot find any sriracha without sugar. Did you have a particular brand you use?

  • I made these for dinner this week, and they are delicious. I hadn’t thought before on a dish like this to calculate my macros per meatball, but that makes it so easy for me to determine how many I can eat in a particular meal, including the leftovers for lunches.
