    I made these without the miso paste (only because I couldn't find any) and they were yummy! I was pleasantly surprised how flavorful they were. I didn't skewer them either due to laziness. haha I'd make them for dinner or an appetizer! I doubled the sauce just because we love sauce!

    Mine fell right off the skewers so I'm glad I didn't grill them on our BBQ because it would've been a mess. Very tasty - had to use white miso because that is what I had on hand. Loved the sauce. Don't know if I'd make them again though as they are a bit of work and create a fair amount of dishes to clean (I even used the food processor to mix the meatball mixure). I would definitely make the sauce again for other asian dishes.

    We loved these! I used turkey instead of chicken. I basted the meatballs with the sauce and baked them at 400 degrees for about 15 minutes. I was a little worried they might be dry, but they were perfect. I made extra sauce and served them over brown rice. A new favorite!

    Delicious!! We grilled on a pan, same time, 9 minutes. Definite do-over!!

    The meatballs were tasty it very time consuming to make. The recipe also has a lot of ingredients. They were tasty but I don't think I would make them again

    I made these very close to the recipe. I used turkey instead of chicken and didn't skewer them. I just baked the meatballs off before tossing with the sauce. These would make great appetizers for entertaining. I think next time I might slightly increase the sugar in the sauce and maybe make a little more sauce if I'm using them for entertaining. Very tasty though! YUM!
