Two words: yum yum. This simple, quick, and easy recipe belies its enveloping aroma as it bakes, and the wallop of great flavor with each and every bite. I cannot recommend these meatballs enough, and am offering a big shoutout to BakingHaven blog for this recipe. Enjoy!

Vietnamese chicken meatballs

1 pound ground chicken breast

3 cloves garlic, minced

3 shallots, minced

handful of mint and coriander

3 tablespoons fish sauce

1 stalk fresh lemon grass, minced (white inner bulb only)

1 1/2 teaspoons cornstarch

1/2 teaspoon kosher salt

1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper

1/2 cup sugar

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Mix all the ingredients together, EXCEPT the sugar.

Spread the sugar on a plate. Roll the chicken mixture into 1 1/2 inch balls with slightly moistened hands, then roll each meatball in a little sugar. Arrange on the baking sheet and bake for 15-20 minutes until browned and cooked through. Makes about 20 meatballs.
