    Asian inspired dishes are my guilty pleasure, love the use of the chicken making it like meatballs and then flavored with all those wonderful sauces and spices. The toasted sesame seeds much be the final touch that makes this meatballs so special.

      I have a special love for Asian dishes too (well them and pasta!!!) I think it is that they always taste so fresh and packed full of flavour!!
      I do like to use chicken mince sometimes, just to give meals a lighter feel!

    These sound really good. A lot of meatball dishes don’t have a lot of flavor but this one sounds like it would.

      Thank you Pam, my family is one for big flavours. (both my boys love olives/curry/blue cheese) so I try not to make anything bland. I like to ensure they get used to flavours!

  14. Loving the look and sound of that sticky sauce. I could see it tasting amazing on other things as well. Your photos just make this look so mouthwatering!

      Thank you Stephanie.
      Yes the sauce is so good! I have a vegetarian recipe coming soon that uses the same sauce base.

  15. I love meatballs and they look delicious!! I love the different flavors you have in them. Makes them more exotic tasting. We’re not home now but once we are I’ll have to make these delicious morsels.

      I have a recipe coming up soon that is vegetarian and uses the same sauce as a base.
      And it cooks in the oven ?

      Oven baking them definitely saves all that standing over the hob and watching them! During dinner time prep there are always 101 other things that seem to be going on!!! And if not there is always a glass of wine to be drunk ??????

    We have been snowed in with a blizzard and I do not have Mirin…is it essential to the recipe?

    1. Reply

      Hi Allison, instead of mirin you could use sherry/masala.

      Alternatively you could use 1/4 cup of white wine + 1/4 cup water with 1/2 tsp of sugar dissolved in it.

      At a push apple juice would work but it may change the flavour a little.

      Hope that all helps.

    Hi Claire. These sound delicious. I always bake meatballs simply because I hate frying because it’s so messy. And yes to sticky rice and bok choy.

      I actually have a salisbury steak meatball recipe that I want to post, which is inspired by the way you cook meatballs in the oven with beef broth.
      My photos weren’t great so I need to take them again!
