Thai Curry Meatballs can be made with your choice of ground meat ~ chicken, turkey, or pork. I chose to use chicken for these because I like the flavor and ground chicken is readily available. These succulent meatballs are accompanied with a creamy coconut sauce that embodies all the thai flavors of green curry, ginger, lemongrass and thai chilies for a little extra something something…. which is completely optional!
