Chicken Meatballs - Japanese

Adapted from Gwyneth Paltrow's "It's All Good." I like the prepared ginger by "The Ginger People."

Community Recipe from


  • 1 pound(s) ground chicken (preferably dark meat)
  • 1/2 teaspoon(s) coarse salt (kosher or sea)
  • 1/2 teaspoon(s) black pepper
  • 1 whole(s) garlic clove finely minced
  • 1 teaspoon(s) freshly grated ginger (jarred is fine!)
  • 1 tablespoon(s) soy sauce
  • 2 teaspoon(s) real maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoon(s) grapeseed oil (or canola)
  • 1 jar(s) hoisin sauce for serving


  1. 1. Thoroughly mix the chicken with the salt, pepper, garlic, ginger, soy sauce and maple syrup. Roll the mixture into golf ball-sized meatballs.

  2. 2. Heat the grapeseed oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Brown the meatballs on all sides, working in batches if necessary, about 2-3 minutes per side. Reduce heat to medium and continue to cook until the meatballs are cooked through.

  3. Serve with hoisin sauce on the side.
