Instructions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or lightly grease it.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the ground chicken, breadcrumbs, grated Parmesan cheese, chopped onion, minced garlic, chopped parsley, beaten egg, salt, and black pepper. Mix well until all the ingredients are evenly incorporated.
  3. Shape the mixture into bite-sized meatballs, approximately 1 inch in diameter, and place them on the prepared baking sheet. Leave a small gap between each meatball.
  4. Bake the meatballs in the preheated oven for about 15-18 minutes, or until they are cooked through and golden brown.
  5. While the meatballs are baking, prepare the sauce. In a small saucepan, combine the soy sauce, honey, ketchup, brown sugar, rice vinegar, minced garlic, grated ginger, and red pepper flakes (if using). Stir well to combine.
  6. In a separate small bowl, whisk together the cornstarch and water to make a slurry. This will be used to thicken the sauce later.
  7. Place the saucepan with the sauce over medium heat. Bring it to a simmer, stirring occasionally. Once the sauce begins to simmer, gradually pour in the cornstarch slurry while stirring continuously.
  8. Continue to cook the sauce for 2-3 minutes, or until it thickens to a sticky consistency. Remove from heat.
  9. Once the meatballs are cooked, transfer them to a large bowl and pour the sticky sauce over them. Gently toss the meatballs in the sauce until they are well coated.
  10. Sprinkle the meatballs with sesame seeds and chopped green onions for garnish.
  11. Serve the Sticky Chicken Meatballs as an appetizer or as a main course over steamed rice. Enjoy!

Note:

These meatballs can also be served on skewers as a party snack or appetizer.

Just thread the cooked meatballs onto skewers before tossing them in the sticky sauce.
