DirectionsPreheat oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly grease or spray cookie sheet. In large bowl, mix chicken, shallot, ginger, 1 tbsp brown sugar, 2 tbsp bourbon, 3 tbsp soy sauce & the bread crumbs. Shape into 16 meatballs, using about 2 tbsp mixture for each. Place on cookie sheet.Bake 20 - 25 minutes or until thermometer inserted in center of meatball reads 165 degrees F.Meanwhile, separate each biscuit into 2 layers to make 16 dough rounds. Place 1 spinach leaf & 1 meatball on each round. Wrap dough around meatball, & pinch dough to seal. On lightly greased cookie sheet, place about 2" apart.Bake for 20 - 25 minutes or until golden brown.Meanwhile, make sauce. In 1 qt saucepan, mix 1/2 C bourbon, 2 tbsp soy sauce, vinegar & 1/2 C brown sugar. Heat to boiling; reduce heat to medium & cook 11 minutes. Dissolve cornstarch in water; add to sauce & heat until thickened.Garnish sauce with chopped green onions. Serve with bourbon chicken balls.TIP:
To prevent meatball mixture from sticking to your hands, wet hands lightly with cold water before shaping balls.
Forget the shallot? No problem...1 1/2 tsp grated garlic & 1 1/2 tsp grated onion can be substituted for the 1 tbsp grated shallot in this recipe.
