Korean Chicken Meatballs

This back to school season brings on a major milestone in my family’s life: my son is starting kindergarten! I can’t believe it, it was just yesterday we drove the hour drive from the hospital in Red Deer, while I rode in the back with him the whole time to make sure he was okay.

Since this is new territory for me, I’m searching and creating quick and easy recipes to make those first few weeks of transition easier on all of us.


I recently purchased an Instant Pot and I love how fast and easy it is for creating healthy dinners. These Instant Pot Korean Chicken Meatballs are just that: quick, easy, and packed full of flavor.

In addition to meal planning, I’m making life easier on myself by using the Chicken App [1]. This app is a lifesaver! I can add my grocery list, and use the share feature to make life that much easier. This way, my husband and I share a grocery list, so if he happens to be at the store he can check the list and pick up a few things for dinner. It saves me time and when I forget important items (which happens often), he can grab them for me.

If you don’t have an Instant Pot, you should definitely think about getting one but in the mean time: you can bake the meatballs at 425 for 25-30 minutes.
