Chicken Skewer Meatballs

Enjoy this lighter take on traditional meatballs, made with an Eastern flare.
Serves: 6
Total time: 30 minutes



  • 1 cup soy sauce
  • ¼ cup rice vinegar
  • ¼ cup sake
  • ¼ cup sugar

  • In a medium pot, combine all ingredients for soy glaze and bring to a boil. Remove from heat.
  • Combine the ground chicken, green onions, ginger, sesame oil, and ¼ cup of the soy glaze in a bowl.
  • Roll about 1-inch meatballs, then skewer meatballs on a skewer, leaving a bit of room between each.
  • Note: If you’re having issues forming meatballs, add panko breadcrumbs to the mixture until the meatballs hold their shape.
  • Heat oil in a pan over medium-high heat. Sear meatballs on skewers and flip when golden brown.
  • Brush the remaining glaze on the skewers evenly and cook a few more minutes, turning and evenly coating skewers with glaze.
