Asian Chicken Meatballs with Teriyaki Glaze


Scale

Ingredients

For the meatballs:

  • 1lb ground chicken breast
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4c plain bread crumbs
  • 2 green onions, thinly sliced
  • 2 large cloves garlic, minced
  • 1” piece of ginger, minced
  • 1/2tsp black pepper
  • pinch salt
  • 23 drops sesame oil
  • 1 1/2tsp soy sauce
  • 2 Tbsp cornstarch
  • canola oil

For the teriyaki glaze:

  • 1/2c teriyaki sauce
  • 1/3c water
  • 2 tsp cornstarch

Instructions

  1. Combine chicken, egg, breadcrumbs, green onion, garlic, ginger, pepper, salt, sesame oil and soy sauce. Stir well to combine. Stir in cornstarch and blend well. Form into small 1-1 1/2″ meatballs and flatten slightly to make small discs. Heat a small drizzle of canola oil in a medium sized pan over medium heat. Add half of the meatballs and cook 2-4 minutes per side or until golden brown and cooked through. Remove to a plate lined with paper towels. Repeat with second half of the meatballs. Drain any fat or remaining oil from the pan.
  2. Combine teriyaki glaze ingredients and pour into the same pan used for the meatballs. Stir to scrape up any brown bits and cook over medium heat until slightly thickened. Add meatballs and stir to coat. Serve with rice, stir-fry vegetables, and green onions for garnish.
