We loved this recipe! YUMMY! I used ground chicken and made a couple changes. I did not use the marmalade in the sauce (we like our sauce a little more spicy than sweet). Instead, I put in two Tbsp. spicy barbecue sauce and I also added some fresh garlic into the sauce. It turned out great. I didn't have minute rice, so I just cooked some regular brown rice and used 2 cups of cooked rice. That's probably less than 2 cups of uncooked minute rice, but the meatballs turned out moist and firm--not crumbly at all!
Lesson: Do NOT used undercooked rice. Oops! It absorbed all the moisture from the meat so the meatballs were D.R.Y. and coulda used a lil salt. The sauce was amazing though..I reduced it to make it thicker and the ginger and nutmeg MAKE it!
We made these for a football game and love them. The flavors mend well together and we plan to have them again. Followed the recipe as stated. Great, great recipe! Five stars!
It's good (really good) but hard to get into the right shape since it is a bit loose. I would recommend blending the rice a bit before mixing then refrigerating the solid meatball mixture to make it easier to handle and form into balls. Also needs 1 more egg as prepared since it doesn't have anything to bind (1 extra egg white would be sufficient).
I really liked this recipe. My family did too, even though my mom did not eat the meatballs because she does not like sweet meatballs she thought the rice with the sauce was great along with the pinapple pieces. I also omitted onions, simply because we did not have any.
It was a nice change from my normal fixxings, but I always find poultry meatballs to be a little mushy. I liked the sauce, I didn't have any orange marmalade so I just squeezed in some fresh lemon juice. That brightened the sauce right up.
This recipe had good flavor but I thought there was too much rice. I am looking forward to trying this again but reducing the amount of rice added to the meatballs.
very good! I didn't use marmalade bc I didn't have any. I used orange juice instead and it turned out great.

Pile it into a tomato half, load it into a wrap, or spread it on bread. Chicken salad does it all.
Broccoli salad makes a great side dish or a light main dish on a warm night.
