These meatballs are actually inspired by the gluten-free BBQ Chicken Pizza at California Pizza Kitchen, which was always one of my favorite all-time pizzas. Take the toppings of that pizza – chicken, cilantro, red onion, and BBQ sauce – and combine them into meatballs! These would be great grilled, but I don’t have a grill, so I use the stove top. You can also place them on a baking sheet (lined with parchment or foil for easy cleanup) and bake them for about 15-20 minutes at 350F. Top with some extra BBQ sauce for serving!
- 1 lb ground chicken
- ¼ cup AIP-friendly barbecue sauce
- ¼ cup cilantro, chopped
- ¼ cup red onion, chopped
- 2 tbsp cooking fat
- Combine the chicken, barbecue sauce, cilantro, and red onion and form into 1-inch balls.
- Heat the cooking fat in a skillet over medium heat and saute the meatballs until cooked through, about 10-15 minutes, stirring occasionally.
