I thought this was a great recipe. I followed the directions exactly. I would make again, but I think I would modify the meatball ingredients. I thought the meatballs were to gingery. I am not sure if it was because I used bottled ginger instead of fresh. Next time I make this, I will either use less bottled ginger or ground ginger.

- 1 1/2 cups long-grain rice
- 1 1/4 pounds ground chicken
- 2 scallions, chopped
- 2 tablespoons grated fresh ginger
- 2 tablespoons canola oil
- 1/2 pound snow peas, halved crosswise (3 cups)
- 1 cup frozen shelled edamame, thawed
- 1/2 cup low-sodium soy sauce
- 2 tablespoons brown sugar
- Cook the rice according to the package directions.
Meanwhile, in a large bowl, combine the chicken, scallions, and ginger. Shape into 16 meatballs.
Heat 1 tablespoon of the oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Cook the meatballs, turning, until cooked through, 10 to 12 minutes. Transfer to a plate.
Wipe out the skillet. Heat the remaining oil over medium-high heat. Add the peas and edamame. Cook, tossing, for 2 minutes. Return the meatballs to skillet.
In a small bowl, combine the soy sauce and sugar. Add to the skillet and simmer until slightly thickened, 2 to 3 minutes. Serve over the rice.
Tip: To keep the ground chicken from sticking to your fingers, wet your hands before forming the meatballs.
