I’m not sure you know this about me but I adore meatballs. Mmm, those hearty bites of protein - LOVE them.💕 2 years ago I did a month of meatball posts during March and called it March Meatball Madness. Get it – they’re round like a basketball???🏀 Clever – right!??😁
Yes – it was madness in the best way possible. It was so much fun and I do believe I perfected the art of a tender, juicy, flavorful meatball. Not to toot my own horn but you know what they say… practice makes perfect. And I got A LOT of practice.👌
You know who else makes perfect meatballs? My favorite chicken sausage brand on the planet – al fresco!💯 Not kidding people. I have a massive crush on all their products.💚 They taste amazing and since they’re pre-cooked they’re ready in just a few minutes.
Recently, I was at the grocery store deciding which flavor chicken sausage I was going to use for dinner and there they were… Teriyaki Ginger Chicken Meatballs, all cute and pre-cooked and calling my name. Into my basket they went and now I’m all kinds of crazy about them. They. Are. Amazing.
Tender, juicy, flavorful and ready in 5-7 minutes. Shut the oven door. No seriously, do it 'cause these babies are going on the grill. Hello.🙌
Summertime grillin’ and chillin'.
I think it’s safe to say we all are looking for ways to create good-for-us, easy, meals that taste fabulous. Amiright?
No need to keep mining for diamonds ‘cause your search is over - al fresco to the rescue!✨ They make so many delicious pre-cooked chicken sausages, meatballs, and even bacon. You can literally replace their pre-cooked products for the chicken in any recipe to make every meal quick, easy and even more delicious. Seriously, it’s chicken, only better.👍
Like these Teriyaki Ginger Meatballs. I used them instead of cutting up and marinating chicken breasts for my Teriyaki Chicken Kabobs. It was so much easier - no raw chicken to contend with and they only required 7 minutes on the grill.
All you need is some veggies, a yummy Teriyaki sauce, and these meatballs.👇
First things first, I mix up my sauce in a pan on the stove. Heat some olive oil and cook the minced garlic for a minute. Then add the soy sauce, honey or maple syrup, pineapple juice, lime juice, ginger spice, onion powder, pepper, cornstarch and a pinch of cayenne. Whisk it together for a few minutes then remove it from the heat.
Now preheat the grill and cut up a red and green pepper, red onion and fresh pineapple into 1-inch pieces and start skewering.
Then brush the kabobs with the Teriyaki sauce and spritz them with some grill spray. Grill them on high for 3 ½ minutes on the top and bottom sides.
And that’s it - Teriyaki Chicken Meatball Kabobs, another easy chicken recipe for entertaining with al fresco all natural.👏
Easy-peasy and super yummy.
Trust me – once you try them you’ll be serving up these Teriyaki Meatball Kabobs all summer long.☀️ And when summer's over you'll want to try these French onion chicken meatballs next!

I don't like Teriyaki so I got creative. Made the meatballs in brown sugar garlic glaze. It's good on chicken so I figured
what the heck. They were really good and my kids loved them.
Hi Lisa so glad the family enjoyed them. Thanks for your comment! 🙂 - H&B
I’m not a good cook, and am lazy to boot. Couldn’t you use a bottled teriyaki sauce ? Any kind you suggest?
You can definitely buy a bottled version of the teriyaki sauce. Kikkoman Original Teriyaki is a good one as far as bottled versions go. Good luck!
I have been looking for recipes for chicken meatballs and sausage. This was absolutely delicious. Had it with sliced baked tomatoes with mozzarella. It was my favorite meal all week, happy to have left overs for lunch today....thanks so much
I'm so glad you enjoyed the recipe, Kathy! I love these flavors and how easy this meal comes together! Thanks so much!
I don't have a grill. Can I make the skewers and roast in the oven? What temp/time would you suggest? Or should I broil on low for 2-3 minutes?
Hi Janine, cooking the skewers in the oven should work just fine. I would say cook them for 12 minutes in a 375 degree oven. If you want some charring you could even broil them for a minute after cooking. Good luck!
