Turkey Meatballs with Basil And Sweet Chilli Recipe

A Chinese inspired dish made with lean turkey meatballs, fresh basil and sweet chilli sauce. 

Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 40 minutes
Total Time 45 minutes



  • 450g Lean Turkey Mince
  • 1 Small Egg
  • Breadcrumbs
  • 1 tsp Chilli Flakes


  • 3 Garlic Cloves (Crushed)
  • 10 Basil Leaves
  • 8 tbsp Soy Sauce
  • 6 Tbsp Sweet Chilli Sauce


  1. Preheat the oven to 180C
  2. Mix together the meatballs ingredient in a large bowl, adding just enough breadcrumbs that the mixture is not too wet and forms balls easily.
  3. Roll the mixture into evenly sized balls, and place on a lightly oiled baking tray. Cook in the oven for 20-30 minutes (until cooked through - depending on how large you have rolled them).
  4. Meanwhile, in a non-stick saucepan, heat a small amount of oil, then add the crushed garlic - cook for a minute, then add the soy sauce, basil leaves and sweet chilli sauce. 
  5. Stir to combine, and cook on a low heat for 5 minutes. 
  6. Once the meatballs are cooked through and lightly browned, remove from the oven and place into the pan of sauce - toss to coat and serve immediately with sticky white rice.
