Slow Cooker Barbeque Chicken Meatballs
Barbeque does not have to be limited to your grill this summer. Try these tangy meatballs made in the slow cooker and give your grill or cooktop a break. I love them served over rice but stuff them in hoagie rolls and top with coleslaw for a nice twist on a meatball sandwich.

    Ingredients
    • 2pound ground chicken (preferably dark meat)
    • 1tablespoon plus 2 teaspoon minced dried onion, divided
    • 2teaspoon sea salt
    • 1teaspoon black ground pepper
    • 2teaspoon garlic powder
    • 1 egg
    • coconut or olive oil
    • 1 1/2 cup ketchup
    • 2teaspoon dry mustard
    • 4teaspoon apple cider vinegar
    • 4teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
    • 1tablespoon molasses
    Instructions
    1. Combine the ground chicken, 1 tablespoon minced dried onion and the following 4 ingredients (through egg) in a large bowl. Mix well to combine and shape into 1 1/2 inch meatballs (will make 15-17).
    2. Heat over medium-high heat enough oil in a large flat skillet to coat the bottom. Brown the meatballs turning once for a total of 8-10 minutes (you will probably need to brown in two batches). Drain the grease off of the meatballs on a paper towel and set aside.
    3. In a large slow cooker combine the 2 teaspoons minced dried onion, the ketchup, and the following 4 ingredients (through molasses).
    4. Add the meatballs to the slow cooker and carefully fold them into the barbeque sauce.
    5. Cover and cook at LOW for 3-3 1/2 hours.
    6. Serve over cooked rice or in rolls as a meatball sandwich.
    Recipe Notes

    You can substitute ground turkey in place of the ground chicken.

    I love these meatballs over rice with a side of coleslaw but try them in a roll as a meatball sub.

    You could also roll the ground chicken mixture into mini meatballs and serve cocktail style as an appetizer or part of a buffet.
