Ever had really delicious, but really greasy Chinese food? Just the other day, my husband and I went to a Chinese restaurant and we got sesame chicken. Man, it was fabulous, but we felt pretty guilty afterwards. So, after a few days of thinking, I came up with a recipe for guiltless turkey sesame meatballs with a quick 3 minute sauce….that’s right…3 minute sauce. Perfect for all you busy bodies on the go! And, there’s enough sauce to add to some quick stir fried veggies! Crack out your wok’s-Chinese is on tonight!
30 Minute Healthy Chinese
For the meatballs -
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In large bowl, combine all ingredients except for the sesame seeds. Form into golf ball sized rounds. Roll in sesame seeds and place on sheet pan sprayed with non-stick cooking spray. Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until cooked thoroughly. Serve with sauce (see below).For the sauce -
In large bowl or liquid measure, stir all ingredients. Microwave on high for 3 minutes until sugar is dissolved. Serve with Turkey Sesame Meatballs and/or veggies (see below). Stir Fry Veggies So, there's really not much to cooking up some vegetables. In a large fry pan or wok, heat up 1-2 tablespoons of oil. Dump in your veggies of choice and cook for 5-10 minutes.I used onion, broccoli, green and red bell peppers, bok choy, and carrots. After mine were cooked, I added in half of the sauce (above) and kept the other half to pour over the meatballs.
