For the best flavor, opt for dark meat, or a mix.

Japanese Chicken Meatballs

It's All Good

I have a hard time not gobbling these up when they’re being served to the kids. They’re so good!

1. Thoroughly mix the chicken with the salt, pepper, garlic, ginger, soy sauce, and maple syrup. Roll the mixture into golf ball–sized meatballs. Grill, roast, broil, or pan-fry the meatballs until they’re cooked through and serve with Lee’s Hoisin Sauce.
