For the meatballs:

For the sauce:

  • 1/3 cup low sodium soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup rice wine vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon toasted sesame oil
  • 2 teaspoons peeled and grated fresh ginger
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch

For serving:

  • Sesame seeds
  • Green onions, sliced
  • Rice, optional


  • Preheat oven to 400º F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  • In a large bowl, combine the ground chicken, panko, egg, green onions, garlic, salt, and pepper. Stir until well combined.
  • Using a medium cookie scoop or a spoon, scoop and roll the mixture into 2-tablespoon balls and place them on the prepared baking sheet. You can wear gloves or lightly spray your hands with nonstick cooking spray.
  • Bake for 15 to 20 minutes or until browned and cooked through. Check early so you don’t overcook and dry out the meatballs. Remove from the oven.
  • While the meatballs are baking, make the sauce. In a small mixing bowl, whisk together soy sauce, brown sugar, vinegar, sesame oil, fresh ginger, garlic, and cornstarch.
  • Pour the sauce in a large skillet. Heat over medium heat and bring to a boil. Reduce to low and simmer for about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, or until the sauce thickens. Turn off the heat and add the warm meatballs. Stir until meatballs are well coated in the sauce.
  • Garnish with sesame seeds and sliced green onions. Serve with rice, if desired.
