  • 1 lb. boneless, skineless chicken thighs
  • 1/4 small onion, diced
  • 3 cloves garlic, peeled
  • 1 egg white
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3 dashes black pepper
  • oil, for shallow frying
  • 1/3 cup Japanese mirin, sweet rice wine
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • white sesame, (optional)
  • Chopped scallion or cilantro, (optional)


  1. Blend the chicken, onion, garlic, egg white, lemon juice, salt and pepper in a food processor until well combined. Wet both hands with some water and shape the ground chicken into meatballs and lay on a plate lined with parchment paper. Heat up a pan or skillet with some oil, shallow fry the meatballs until lightly browned or cooked through.

  2. Remove the excess oil from the pan or skillet. Lower the heat to medium-low and add the Japanese mirin, soy sauce and sugar. Stir well with the chicken meatballs. Simmer and cook until the sauce slightly thickened, about 5 minutes. Top with sesame and chopped scallion or cilantro, if using. Dish out and serve immediately.
