Asian Flare……Hoisin Meatballs


  • 1 pound ground chicken
  • 1/2 teaspoon toasted sesame oil
  • 1/2 cup Panko crumbs
  • 1/2 teaspoon fresh ginger, minced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 large egg
  • 5 green onions, thinly sliced, divided
  • Sesame seeds, for garnish
  • Homemade Hoisin Sauce:
  • 4 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons peanut butter
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 2 teaspoons rice wine vinegar
  • 1 teaspoons sesame oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon sriracha
  • 1/8 teaspoon garlic pepper


  1. Preheat oven to 400*.
  2. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or spray with non-stick spray.
  3. In a large bowl combine ground chicken, sesame oil, Panko crumbs, fresh ginger, garlic, egg, and 3 of the sliced green onions ( about 3/4 of them). With clean hands mix all ingredients well. Form meat mixture into 18-20 meatballs. I use an ice cream scoop to ensure uniform size.
  4. Place meatballs on prepared baking sheet and bake for 12-15 minutes or until cooked through and are browned.
  5. To make Hoisin Sauce:
  6. Combine all ingredients in a small bowl.
  7. Pour Sauce over meatball. Garnish with remaining green onions and sesame seeds.


If you plan on holding the meatballs in a crock pot I would double the sauce recipe.
