Asian Chicken Meatballs
We have had so many dinner parties over the past two weeks that it kept getting more difficult to think of something to cook. I didn’t have a lot of time as most of them were during the week, so I wanted something easy while still trying to impress. This is why I came up with these Asian style meatballs which were a perfect fit with noodles: Asian spaghetti and meatballs!
These meatballs would also taste delicious with my peanut dipping sauce. I am already planning on making this combination in the next few weeks.
This recipe makes about 22 medium sized meatballs
900g minced chicken
2 shallots, finely diced
1/3 cup soy sauce
½ cup panko crumbs
2 tablespoons sesame oil
1 tablespoon ginger syrup
1 ½ teaspoon garlic powder
1 ½ teaspoon onion powder
½ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon white pepper
¼ cup olive oil
2 tablespoons butter
In a large bowl mix all the ingredients together, cover and refrigerate for 1 hour.
Shape the meatballs, depending on what size you prefer, I made them into medium sized balls.
In a large pan heat the olive oil and butter over medium heat and cook the meatballs, you might need to do these in batches. Depending on the size of the balls, it will take about 8-15 minutes.
Serve these with noodles and your favorite dipping sauce..
