The folks over at Harvestland and MomsMeet sent me a gift box of coupons to use so I stocked up on Harvestland whole chicken, chicken breasts, chicken thighs, ground chicken, and ground turkey for all my recipes over the next month. It’s all available at my local Wal-Mart and it’s long been my preferred brand for my family. Their products are fresh, all natural, cage free, and hormone and steroid free. I feel good knowing I am feeding my family the best.
Their motto: HARVESTLAND® antibiotic-free meat is pure and simple, like your ancestors would have eaten. So dig in, your ancestors would be proud.
- 1lb ground Harvestland chicken
- 1/4 cup plus 1 tbsp green onions, diced
- 1 egg, beaten
- 1/4 cup Panko breadcrumbs
- 1/4 cup teriyaki sauce (I like Mr. Yoshida’s)
- 2/3 cup chicken broth
- olive oil
- Jasmine rice, cooked
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- Mix together ground chicken, 1/4 cup green onions, egg, 2 tbsp teriyaki sauce, and panko breadcrumbs in a bowl until well combined.
- Scoop out a small palm sized amount (about 2 tbsp) in your hand and roll into a meatball. Place on a lined tray or plate until all meatballs are rolled out.
- In a large skillet over medium heat add a large swirl of olive oil to coat the bottom evenly.
- Gently place meatballs in the pan, spacing slightly and not overcrowding (I usually cook about 8-10 at a time).
- Let the meatballs sizzle and cook for about 3-4 minutes until browned on one side then flip over and cook until browned on the other side.
- Add about 1/3 cup chicken broth to the pan (enough to cover the bottom).
- Now you can either place the skillet in the oven, which is what I like to do, (I use a oven safe cast iron pan) and let the meatballs finish cooking in the oven for about 5 minutes.
- Or you can lower the heat on the stove to med-low, cover with a lid, and let the meatballs simmer on the stove top until the liquid is evaporated (about 5-10 minutes).
- Add the meatballs to a platter or dish, baste with 1 tbsp Terayaki sauce, and cover to keep warm.
- Repeat the cooking process with remaining meatballs.
- Serve warm on top of hot Jasmine rice and with a side of veggies (like my Lemon Parmesan Roasted Broccoli).
- Garnish with 1 tbsp green onions (and more teriyaki sauce if you’d like).
