Hawaiian Luau Meatballs

This was originally a recipe from the Looneyspoons collection cookbook, that I changed up a bit.  The original recipe served these as kabobs..and I still think that is a great idea.  However, it is raining here today in the Pacific Northwest, so I am not going to BBQ.  Instead, I doubled the sauce, baked the meatballs in the oven, and cooked up the vegetables in a skillet.  Still delicious and I didn't get all wet making dinner.

1# ground chicken
2/3 c. panko crumbs
1 egg
1 chopped shallot
Mix all ingredients together and form into 15 large meatballs.  Put in the freezer for 15 minutes to firm up.  Bake in a 350 oven for 25 minutes.

Meanwhile mix up the sauce:
2/3 c. barbeque sauce
6 t. soy sauce
1 1/2 t. ginger
4 t. honey
2 t. sesame oil
Mix all ingredients together.

In a saucepan heat a T. of olive oil.  Add in
1 chopped red or green pepper
1/2 onion, chopped in large pieces
1 small can pineapple, drained
Cook until vegetables are tender.  Add in 3 T. pineapple juice, cooked meatballs, and the sauce.
Heat thoroughly.
