  • Ingredients
    1 can (20 oz.) crushed pineapple, divided
    1 pkg (20 oz.) ground turkey or chicken
    2 cups Minute® Brown Rice
    3/4 cup green onion, thinly sliced and divided
    1/2 cup teriyaki sauce, divided
    1 egg, lightly beaten
    1 tsp ground ginger
    1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
    2 Tbsps orange marmalade
  • Directions
    • Preheat oven to 350° F.  Prepare rice according to package directions.
    • Drain 1/2 cup crushed pineapple for meatballs. Reserve remaining pineapple and juice for sauce.
    • Combine ground turkey or chicken, cooked rice, 1/2 cup pineapple, 1/2 cup green onions, 1/4 cup teriyaki sauce, egg, ginger and nutmeg in large bowl. Mix well.
    • Scoop mixture and gently roll into desired meatball size (we suggest about the size of a golf ball); place meatballs on aluminum foil-lined baking sheet with sides. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes or until meatballs are done.
    • While meatballs are baking, to make sauce, combine remaining pineapple and juice, remaining 1/4 cup teriyaki sauce and orange marmalade in medium saucepan; heat to boiling. Reduce heat and simmer, uncovered 3 to 4 minutes. Stir in remaining 1/4 cup green onions.
    • Top cooked meatballs with sauce.
    • If desired, serve meatballs over additional hot cooked rice and sprinkle with additional green onions.
