For the chicken meatball

  • In a small saute pan add sesame oil, ginger, and onion. Cook for 2 minute and then add the garlic. 2 minutes and then add 1/4 cup of soy sauce. Cook for another 3 minutes and then turn off the heat and cool. Once cooled place all the ingredients into a large bowl along with the chicken, egg, bread crumbs and herbs, salt and mix well.
    Once mixed well take a spoon full of mixture and place it into a small pan with oil on medium high heat. Cook for 1-2 minutes on each side until it is cooked all the way through. Taste the mixture and ask yourself how does it taste? Adjust the seasoning fo the meatball to your liking ( more salt, more spice, more herbs, etc…)
    Once you have added more seasoning if need be then take a small ice cream scoop and scoop the chicken meatballs onto a sheet pan lined with parchment paper. Continue until there is no more mix. Place in 350 degree oven for 20-22 minutes.
