Chicken Teriyaki Meatballs with Edamame and Snow Peas

Real Simple DECEMBER 2008

  • Yield: Makes 4 servings
  • Prep time:20 Minutes
  • Other:10 Minutes


  • 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.
