Honey Chipotle Turkey Meatballs

New Year's was quiet for us - an evening spent at home. I couldn't resist making some special food, though. To me, appetizer-type food is New Year's food. I can't remember everything I made, but I made honey chicken wings and these meatballs. I am usually leary of ground turkey recipes, but the flavors in this work quite well.

Honey Chipotle Turkey Meatballs
adapted from Everyday Food

1 1/2 lb. ground turkey
1/2 yellow onion, diced small
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. ground pepper
4 Tbsp. honey
2 Tbsp. chopped chipotle chiles in adobo sauce
4 tsp. cider vinegar
1 Tbsp. olive oil

Preheat oven to 375. In a medium bowl, mix together ground turkey, onion, garlic, salt, and pepper until combined. Form into 16 meatballs. In a small bowl, stir together honey, chopped chipotle chiles, and cider vinegar.

In a large ovenproof skillet, heat olive oil over medium-high. Add meatballs and cook until browned on all sides, 10-12 minutes. Remove from oven, pour honey mixture over meatballs, and swirl skillet to coat; bake until liquid is reduced and meatballs are glazed, 10 minutes, swirling halfway through.
