RECIPE: TERIYAKI TSUKUNE (MINCED CHICKEN BALLS)

 

Tsukune are juicy, succulent chicken meatballs coated with a sweet and savory sauce and often served on skewers. They’re commonly enjoyed in izakayas alongside a dry beer, shochu or rose wine.

Servings: 2

Ingredients

  • 180g minced chicken
  • Pinch of salt
  • Dash of sake
  • ½ green onion/leek (finely chopped)
  • 10-15g ginger (grated and squeezed to produce liquid from the ginger. Note: you will only be using the liquid and not the grated ginger)
  • 1 tbsp potato starch
  • ½ tbsp vegetable oil
  • 2-2½ tbsp teriyaki sauce

Instructions

  1. Using your hands, mix the minced chicken, salt and sake in a bowl.
  2. Mix in the green onion/leek, ginger liquid and potato starch. Divide into four equal portions and shape into balls with some water on hands.
  3. Heat the oil in a frying pan and add the chicken balls. When both sides change color, remove the chicken balls and dab off any excess oil with a paper towel. 
  4. Add the teriyaki sauce to the pan over low heat, add back the chicken balls and coat.
  5. Serve on a plate, skewered if desired.
