  • 1 1/2 pounds ground turkey
  • 1/2 yellow onion, diced small
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon fine salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground pepper
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons chopped chipotle chiles in adobo sauce
  • 2 teaspoons cider vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In a medium bowl, mix together turkey, onion, garlic, salt, and ground pepper until combined (do not overmix). Form into 16 meatballs. In a small bowl, stir together honey, chiles, and vinegar.

  2. In a large ovenproof skillet, heat olive oil over medium-high. Add meatballs and cook until browned on all sides, 10 to 12 minutes. Transfer skillet to oven and bake 5 minutes. Remove from oven, pour honey mixture over meatballs, and swirl skillet to coat; bake until liquid is reduced and meatballs are glazed, 5 minutes, swirling halfway through.

    Not a bad recipe but it seems not 100% developed. There is not enough glaze for sure -- even multiplying it by 4 is not enough then it gets pricey with all that honey. I added a half pound of ground beef (for flavor and for moisture as the turkey dries out fast) and chicken broth to the sauce and finally the recipe is better. Husband still isn't a fan though.
