Sweet and Sour Meatballs

You will need:
For the meatballs: 
1 LB of lean ground turkey
1 cup cooked brown rice
1 8 oz. can crushed pineapple in juice, drained
1/2 cup green onions
1 Tbsp. light soy sauce
1 tsp. ginger
For the sauce:
3/4 cup reduced-sodium, low-fat chicken broth
1/3 cup chili sauce
3 Tbsp. rice vinegar
2 Tbsp. brown sugar
2 tsp. cornstarch
1/2 tsp. ground ginger
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Combine meatball ingredients in medium bowl and mix thoroughly. Line a baking sheet with foil (this helps with cleanup). Place cooking racks in foil-lined baking sheet. Shape meatballs, and place on the racks. Bake for about 25 minutes or until thoroughly cooked. Transfer the meatballs to a serving dish and cover to keep warm.
Combine the sauce ingredients in a small saucepan and stir until cornstarch is dissolved. Place over medium heat and stir intermittently until mixture comes to a boil. Reduce heat to low, and stir for another minute or until mixture thickens slightly. Pour sauce over meatballs, and gently toss to coat meatballs. Serve warm with toothpicks. (makes 37 meatballs)
