You are gonna love me for this recipe. It is SO tasty your family will want seconds. I made these Teriyaki Chicken Meatballs for dinner the other night, and not only were they so easy to make, they were delicious. The best part about this meal? You can make it and get it on the table in less than 20 minutes! (depending on your grill warm up time) Have I sold you on this yet?

Grilled Chicken Teriyaki Meatballs

The secret to these meatballs in that they are the teriyaki chicken meatballs made by Aidells combined with my amazing teriyaki sauce. If you haven’t tried these before, you need to! I bought them from Costco, but have seen them at the grocery store as well. Put 3-4 meatballs on a skewer and grill them until warmed.

I served the meatballs with rice, broccoli and strawberries and had the teriyaki sauce in a gravy dish ready to drizzle over the top of the rice and meatballs. Give it a try and let me know what you think!

Homemade Zuppa Toscana Soup

There is something about using yellow potatoes that makes this a little bit creamier than the russet potatoes. You can use any kind of potato that you would like to, I just thought I would try it out and loved the result.
