Crockpot Chicken Meatballs

This has felt like a really busy week! I got behind on a project at work and had to stay up until 1am on Monday night finishing it. I blame that 1 night for the constant feeling of busy I've had since! I'm a very regimented (okay, old lady) when it comes to my sleep. Sunday through Thursday I like to go to bed by 10pm and sleep until at least 5:45am. One messed up night and I'm all outta whack.  I have NO IDEA how mom's do it. I'm pretty sure some of them sleep like 4 hours a night and call that "good." So not ready to be a parent yet.

Anyway, tonight I'm sharing a really easy and really delicious recipe! This is perfect for any holiday potluck or New Years Eve celebration. Of course it's healthy too.

Sweet Chicken Meatballs

-2 pounds Ground Chicken
-2 egg whites
-1/2 cup 1-minute Oats
-1 bottle BBQ Sauce (try to choose a lower sugar kind. Like <8g Sugar per 2 Tbsp)
-1 Jar Grape Jelly (I used Welch's Reduced Sugar)

-Mix ground chicken, egg whites and oats in a large bowl. Use your hands to combine together very well.
-Heat large pan on stovetop to medium-high. Spray pan with baking spray.
-Roll chicken mixture into small meatballs. (People will want to eat these in one bite, so the smaller the better!)
-After rolling meatballs, place them in the heated pan. Brown the outside.
-Meanwhile, combine BBQ Sauce and Jelly in a crockpot on high.
-After meatballs are browned, add them to the crockpot. Cook for an additional 20 minutes (or until fully cooked) in the crockpot.
-Hold hot until you serve them!
