Paltrow’s Japanese Chicken Meatballs

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

We felt like something different and more lean.  These meatballs by Gwyneth Paltrow fit the bill.  The maple syrup is a unique touch.  I had to omit the raw garlic but it was great anyway, even without the sauce!  Makes 2 dozen protein-packed meatballs.

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 pound ground chicken (preferably dark meat)
  • ½ teaspoon coarse sea salt
  • ½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 garlic clove, very finely minced
  • 1 teaspoon freshly grated ginger
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 2 teaspoons good-quality maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoons neutral oil (like canola, grapeseed, or safflower oil)
  • Lee’s Hoisin Sauce for serving  (optional)

DIRECTIONS:

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