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.
