Because it's healthier and so versatile, we eat a lot of chicken. Normally, i buy boneless skinless thighs or breast.

Asian Meatballs Whole 30 and Paleo approved

If you're looking for something different, I recommend you try this recipe. The sauce flavor is so good as it coats and sticks to the meatballs.

You can also use soy sauce instead … Continue reading Asian Meatballs Whole 30 and Paleo approved
