Air fried chicken teriyaki meatball bowls:

There is no denying it, I am a sucker for all types of bowls for easy weeknight dinner options during the week. Because they are easy to throw together, the flavor combinations are endless, and everyone can tailor their bowls to their liking. It’s a win win for everyone!

Air fried chicken teriyaki meatballs:

For this bowl, I am using air fried chicken teriyaki meatballs as the star of the show. But feel free to use teriyaki chicken thighs, breast, or even use a different ground meat for your meatballs.

Ingredients you will need for meatballs:

  1. Ground chicken (substitute any type of ground meat you like)
  2. Egg
  3. Garlic powder
  4. Ground ginger powder
  5. Green onions
  6. Coriander
  7. Siete Foods Grain Free Chips (substitute: crackers, panko bread crumbs, bread crumbs, or 2 tsp coconut flour)
  8. Salt
  9. Ground pepper

How to prepare meatballs in air fryer:

My favorite way to cook meatballs is in my air fryer. Because they get such a nice crunch on the outside and super juicy and flavorful in the inside. Start by whisking egg in a medium bowl, add in the ground chicken and mix. And then add in the seasonings, chopped green onions, and mix until incorporated. Using a Tbsp ice cream scoop, scoop out the meatball mixture, and add to a greased air fryer dish. And you can try and form into a pretty meatball with your hands. But the mixture is pretty sticky so you may need to wet your hands with water and form.

Bake time in air fryer:

And once the meatballs are in the air fryer, set to 400°F for 18 minutes.

What if I don’t have an air fryer?

And don’t worry, if you don’t have an air fryer you can still make these. You can either bake in the oven or pan fry with some oil over stove top. If baking, I would bake on 350°F for 20-25 minutes.

Ingredients you will need for teriyaki sauce:

  1. Coconut aminos (substitute soy sauce)
  2. 1 small cara cara orange (substitute any type of orange or use 3-4 Tbsp orange juice)
  3. Salt
  4. Pepper
  5. Garlic powder
  6. Ground ginger
  7. Arrowroot powder
  8. Optional but highly recommend: 1 Tbsp Manuka Honey

Preparing the sauce:

Add all the ingredients to a small sauce pan on medium low heat. And whisk the sauce for 5 minutes or until it starts to thicken a bit. Remove from the heat and pour over the cooked meatballs.

Putting the bowls together:

And for the fun part, putting your delicious bowls together! I used Instant pot bone broth rice, air fried chicken teriyaki meatballs, roasted broccoli, addicting cucumber salad, and topped with sesame seeds, and green onions.
