  • 1 ½ pound s 94% fat-free ground turkey breast
  • cup s panko breadcrumbs
  • 1 item s egg(s)
  • 2 Tbsp minced garlic
  • 1 Tbsp low sodium soy sauce
  • 1 Tbsp garlic chili paste
  • 1 Tbsp cilantro


  • Combine all ingredients until uniformly mixed. If you like it a little spicier, feel free to add a little more chili paste.
  • Divide into 6 portions. Mine come out to an even 30oz which was pure luck in my opinion since it is simple math, so I made 5oz portions.
  • I divide each 5oz portion into 4, smaller than a golf ball meatballs. The meat mixture is definitely sticky, but that’s okay. Dividing into portions before rolling them into meatballs helped take the guesswork out of exactly how many I would get. Once they were all rolled, they went onto a baking sheet sprayed with PAM and went into the oven for 15-20 minutes. 
  • Bake until your meatballs are cooked through with an internal temperature of 165 degrees F.
