For the mayo:
1/2 cup Miracle Whip
2 teaspoons bread and butter pickles, minced
2 teaspoons minced fresh ginger
2 teaspoons lime juice
1 clove garlic, minced
1/4 teaspoon salt

For the meatballs:
1 pound ground chicken
2/3 cup panko crumbs
1 egg, lightly beaten
2 green onions, thinly sliced
3 tablespoons chopped cilantro
1 clove garlic, minced
1 teaspoon Sriracha Sauce (adjust for heat if desired)
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup jarred teriyaki glaze
1 tablespoon honey

1 English cucumber, sliced into 1-inch circles
Cilantro and green onions for garnish

Toothpicks for serving


To make the mayo: Mix all ingredients together. Set aside.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
Place ground chicken, panko, egg, green onions, cilantro, garlic, Sriracha sauce and salt in a large bowl and mix well.
Using a small ice cream scoop, scoop mixture onto parchment lined baking sheet. The amount of meatball will depend on the size of the scoop you use. Mine made 24 meatballs.
In a small bowl, mix together teriyaki glaze and honey.

Bake meatballs for 10 minutes. Remove from oven and brush with teriyaki-honey mixture, and place back in the oven for 5 minutes. Remove again and brush with remaining sauce. Return to oven for an additional 5 minutes.

While the meatballs bake, slice the cucumbers. Chop cilantro and green onions for garnish.

Remove from oven and allow to cool slightly.

To assemble place a teaspoon of the mayo on top of a cucumber slice and sprinkle with cilantro. Place a meatball on top of mayo and secure with a toothpick. Garnish with sliced green onions. Serve with extra sauce if desired.
