Wasabi Chicken Meatballs

by Katrina - The Organised Housewife

I found this Wasabi Chicken Meatball Sub recipe in the January/February 2016 Edition of Taste.com.au magazine. I couldn’t find the recipe online to share with you. We really enjoyed it, I reduced the amount of wasabi from the original recipe and put some extra on the side of hubby’s, my sons and my plate as we don’t mind a little extra heat, the girls not so much.

I doubled the recipe so we had the meatballs with salad the first night, then leftover meatballs in subs with salad the next night.

This is my tweaked version of the original recipe. This recipe only serves 4, we are a family of 5 so I recommend doubling it to have some for lunch or easy dinner the next day.

Hi Amanda, there are usually sharing buttons at the bottom of all my posts, but I can’t seem to find the one on this one, it’s not working?? 🙁

Oh YUM! Pinned! My family all love wasabi, this is going to be a favourite!

The original recipe says to use more, but I have left it to just a little for a subtle hint, but then those that like it in our household just added some extra to the side of their plate 🙂

My girls hate spice could you exclude with wasabi or substitute with djion mustard. Also can they be from after cooking.

yes absolutely, I love that idea!

Trying to eat less carbs, suggestions for another binder besides breadcrumbs?

Rachel February 3, 2016 - 8:44 PM

Orgran have packaged crumbs that are mostly brown rice and quinoa. Still carb, but good low GI carb.
