METHOD
  1. Combine all the ingredients listed under ‘honey orange firecracker sauce’ in a glass bowl and add TABASCO® sauce to it.
  2. Whisk until blended. Set it aside.
  3. Assemble ingredients for chicken.
  4. Combine all ingredients in a large bowl and mix using your hand.
  5. Soon the mixture will come together like a dough. At this point, if you prefer, do a small taste test. Cook a small piece of the mixture and taste. Correct the seasoning level, if needed.
  6. Roll the mixture into 2-inch meatballs (appx. 2.5 tablespoons of mixture per meatball). This mixture yields about 26 meatballs.
  7. Heat oil in a heavy-bottomed pan. Evenly space the meatballs on the pan. Cook on a medium-hot flame for 3 minutes. Turn over and cook for an additional 2 to 3 minutes. Do not overcook the meatballs as they will become dry and chewy.
  8. Pour the sauce over the meatballs.
  9. Toss the meatballs in this sauce and cook until the sauce reduces in volume and the meatballs are fully coated in it.
  10. Take it off the flame, garnish with chopped scallions.
  11. Serve hot.
