      Preheat the oven to 375°F. Lightly oil a rimmed baking sheet (these meatballs are quite soft, so better to bake than pan sauté them).

      In a large bowl, using your hands, combine the chicken, apple, onions, egg, maple syrup, barbecue sauce, bread crumbs and salt. Combine the mixture well, but try not to squeeze the mixture too much as you blend it. Make meatballs 1 ½ inches in size and place them on the baking sheet.
