Lazy Girl Spicy Chutney Meatballs


Prep time: 20 minutes 
Cooking time: 30 minutes
Yields approximately 28 meatballs

Ingredients:

1 1/4 lbs Italian seasoned ground turkey
1 1/4 lbs lean ground turkey
1/2 cup grated Parmesan and Romano
2- 1 oz pkgs dry ranch seasoning
2 green onions, finely chopped
3 cloves of garlic, finely minced
1/2-3/4 cup mesquite BBQ sauce
1- 8 oz jar of apple pepper chutney (*or any other chutney you prefer)
*If you use a different type of chutney you may want to add some red pepper flakes for extra spiciness.

Directions:

Mix the chutney with the bbq sauce and set aside.

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  Spray a large baking sheet with non-stick spray. 

Combine all first 6 ingredients in a large mixing bowl. Using a small ice cream scoop, portion into meatballs and place on baking sheet.

Cook for approximately 25 minutes.  Remove from oven and drain off excess juices into a bowl. 

Using a basting brush, coat each meatball with a good amount of the chutney-BBQ sauce.  Place under broiler for approximately 4-5 minutes or until the sauce has thickened and browned.

Remove from oven and allow to cool 5 minutes before serving.
