This is a delicious dinner.....try it soon!  You'll be happy you did!!!!

I used ground chicken but am also going to try it with ground beef next time.  I mixed my meatballs the pretty standard way....1 pound meat, 1 egg, some bread crumbs to hold them together (I used gluten free) and Parmesan cheese.  Added some scallions and rolled into meatballs.  I baked them on an oil lined pan for about 20 mins at 400.

Meanwhile, make the sauce-this is where the magic happens!!!
1/4 cup Jack Daniels Whiskey
1/4 cup Tamari
1/4 cup Dijon mustard
1/4 cup scallion
1/4 cup brown sugar, firmly packed
1/2 tsp. salt (or to taste)
1/4 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
1/2 tsp. garlic powder 

1/4 tsp. black pepper
1T. cornstarch
Place all in a pot and cook together just a few mins. Add cooked meatballs and stir to coat.  Serve topped with scallions and sesame seeds. Drizzle a drop of toasted  sesame oil on top before serving.


  1. these look really great !!! were you able to verify jack daniels is GF ? do you happen to know what its distilled from ? i try to avoid all alcohols that are made from barley wheat or rye even though i know some say that distillation removes the gluten. i'm taking the better safe than sorry approach :) thanks!

  2. "Jack Daniel's Black Label Tennessee Whiskey has no carbohydrates (sugar or starch), gluten, fats, or cholesterol, as these are removed in the distilling process. One fluid ounce of Jack Daniel's contains approximately 65 calories."
    Rain makes corn, corn makes whiskey :-).

    I am trying these tonight. Super excited!!!
