Polynesian Glazed Meatballs

I was looking for something to make with my Chicken Meatballs that I got from Costco the other day. I was surfing Kraftfoods.com and ran across this and it looked yummy... Guess what, IT WAS!!! My husband loved it and it was so easy and quick to make. Great for weeknight cooking! I think the Chicken Meatballs made the dish so yummy... Enjoy!

Recipe from: Kraftfoods.com


1 tsp. oil
1 large red pepper, chopped
1 onion, chopped
1/4 cup KRAFT Original Barbecue Sauce
1 tsp. ground ginger
1 tsp. garlic powder
2 cans (8 oz. each) pineapple chunks, drained, liquid reserved
12 oz. (3/4 of 1-lb. pkg.) frozen cooked meatballs (I used chicken meatballs from Costco)
2 cups instant white rice, uncooked ( I used Brown Rice)

Make It:
HEAT oil in large skillet on medium-high heat. Add peppers and onions; cook 5 min. or until crisp-tender, stirring frequently.
STIR in barbecue sauce, ginger, garlic powder and reserved pineapple liquid. Add meatballs; mix lightly until evenly coated. Cook 10 min. or until meatballs are heated through, stirring occasionally. Meanwhile, cook rice as directed on package.
STIR pineapple into meatball mixture. Serve over the rice.
