1Preheat 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.
2Bake 20 - 25 minutes or until thermometer inserted in center of meatball reads 165 degrees F.
3Meanwhile, 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.
4Bake for 20 - 25 minutes or until golden brown.
5Meanwhile, 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.
6Garnish sauce with chopped green onions. Serve with bourbon chicken balls.
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.
