Asian Chicken Meatballs Recipe

Fat Mum Slim /

Do you have a favourite cuisine? Mine has to be Asian food… and I especially love an Australia/Asian infusion. It usually means fresh, vibrant flavours and I’m always keen for that.

These meatballs are just that, but homestyle and not at all fancy. They are so moorish and delicious, and pack some flavour.

The kids eat them with rice, but we tend to just eat them with bok choy, or with a salad. This cabbage salad goes well with them too.

Asian Chicken Meatballs Recipe



500g chicken mince

3 teaspoon sesame seeds

3/4 cup breadcrumbs

Salt and pepper

1 teaspoon sesame oil

4 garlic cloves, crushed



3/4 cup soy sauce

3/4 cup mirin

 teaspoon sesame oil

1/3 cup of honey

tablespoon rice wine vinegar

Sesame seeds, to garnish

Coriander, to serve

Bok choy, steamed, to serve



  1. Line a baking tray with baking paper. Preheat oven to 220ºC.
  2.  In a large bowl combine all of the meatball ingredients. Use your hands to combine, and then roll into small meatballs {around 1 tablespoon in size}.
  3. Place the meatballs onto the prepared tray, and place into the oven to bake for 5 minutes.
  4. Meanwhile, in a small jug place the soy sauce, mirin, sesame oil, honey and rice wine vinegar. Stir to combine. Remove the meatballs from the oven, and drizzle over meatballs to coat.
  5. Place the tray back into the oven and cook for 10 minutes, or until cooked through.
  6. To serve, sprinkle with sesame seeds and serve with bok choy and coriander. You could also serve with rice, if that suited you!
