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.
