Estimated values based on one serving size.


  1. In a medium pot, combine all ingredients for glaze and bring to a boil until the bubbles start to become sticky and glossy.
  2. Combine the ground chicken, green onions, ginger, sesame oil, and ¼ cup (60 ml) of the soy glaze in a bowl until evenly mixed.
  3. If the mixture does not hold its shape when rolled into a ball, add in panko breadcrumbs, mix evenly, and re-roll the meatballs to test their structural integrity.
  4. Roll about 1-inch (2 ½ cm) meatballs, then skewer 3-4 meatballs on a skewer. Repeat with remaining mixture.
  5. Heat oil in a pan over medium-high heat.
  6. Sear 3-4 skewers at a time and flip when the undersides are golden brown.
  7. Brush the glaze on the skewers evenly and cook for about 5 more minutes, flipping every minute and brushing additional glaze as necessary.
  8. Cool and serve!
  9. Enjoy!
