- 1 pound ground chicken
- 1/4 cup cilantro chopped
- 1/4 cup dried breadcrumbs
- 1/4 cup onion grated
- 2 clove garlic minced
- 1 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp black pepper
- 2 Tbls canola oil
- 1/4 cup creamy peanut butter

- 3 Tbls sugar
- 2 Tbls sesame oil

Mix chicken, cilantro, breadcrumbs, onion, garlic, salt and pepper. Roll into about 1 inch balls.
Heat the oil in a skillet over medium heat. Cook the meatballs until they are cooked through, about 10 minutes.
While they are cooking, you can make the sauce. Mix the remaining ingredients together in a small bowl. Microwave for few seconds to get it warm. Stir together.
Toss the meatballs with half of the sauce, reserving the other ½ for dipping. Sprinkle with the chopped peanuts.
