Instructions

  • Mix together ground chicken, garlic, grated ginger, soy sauce, and half of the onions. Take one tablespoon of mixture at a time and shape into balls and place on a plate. When all meatballs are made, refrigerate for 30 minutes.
  • Heat oil in a medium-sized saucepan and cook meatballs in 2 batches for about 8 minutes per batch, turning them as they cook to make sure they are lightly browned all over. Transfer to a plate using a slotted spoon. Leave drippings in pan.
  • Add bone broth to pan and bring to a simmer. Add browned meatballs and ginger slices and cook for 3 minutes. Add bok choy, artichoke hearts, remaining spring onions, and chili (if using) and simmer for 10 minutes. Meatballs should be cooked through and bok choy tender. Add lime juice.
