Sticky Glazed Meatballs

About This Recipe:

I love how versatile meatballs are, and the endless ways that you can spice them up. These meatballs are super juicy, flavorful, and easy to make for a weeknight dinner. This sauce is sticky, sweet, and salty, and goes really well with a big bowl of jasmine rice. This recipe would also freeze very well if you want to make extra for a handy frozen meal.

-1 lb ground chicken
-3/4 cup panko breadcrumbs
