Ingredients

BOURBON CHICKEN MEATBALLS:
1 lb
ground chicken
1
shallot, minced
1 tsp
ginger powder
1 Tbsp
dark brown sugar, firmly packed
3 Tbsp
bourbon
3 Tbsp
soy sauce, low sodium
1/2 c
bread crumbs, plain, dry
16
baby spinach leaves
1 can(s)
refrigerated biscuits
SAUCE:
1/2 c
bourbon
2 Tbsp
soy sauce, low sodium
1/4 c
vinegar
1/2 c
dark brown sugar, firmly packed
1 Tbsp
cornstarch
1/2 c
water
green onions, chopped

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat 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.
2
Bake 20 - 25 minutes or until thermometer inserted in center of meatball reads 165 degrees F.
3
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.
4
Bake for 20 - 25 minutes or until golden brown.
5
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.
6
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.
