Told ya! Aren’t they something to look at?! I can’t stop staring. Anyways before I get into how these Asian Chicken Meatballs changed my life and will likely do the same to yours. We need to talk about my latest discovery.

Guys, I learned something big. I learned how to regrow green onions.

No that’s not a typo, while planning these Asian Chicken Meatballs, I realized I was almost out of green onions. THERE IS NOTHING WORSE than starting a recipe and then finding you are out of something you need. So while huffing and puffing because my green onions were almost to the root, Baylen tells me, “I actually just watched a video that showed me how to regrow green onions.” I looked at him and thought, “yea right.”

Let me tell you, you can! You can regrow green onions. Here it is: Take your left over green onion scraps fill up a clean glass with water, change the water every day so it doesn’t get slimy, and voilà! Watch your new babies grow. Within two days they were ready for these Asian Chicken Meatballs.

Okay, so about these Asian Chicken Meatballs…..

I honestly have never met anyone that does not like meatballs. But this is like a whole other meatball. Traditionally, when you hear meatball you think Italian, right?! Well these meatballs are so packed with flavor you are in for a meatbally treat.

Now one of the major things about meatballs in my humble opinion is that perfect ball. My easy, peasy trick is to use a cookie scoop to scoop your meatballs. Doing so not only gives a uniform shape, but a uniform size! Click the photo below to purchase the scoop I use from Amazon!

Anywho, you are going to just LOVE this recipe and it is waiting for you to make … Like now! As always friends, let me know how they turn out!
