BBQ Chicken Yakitori (Grilled Skewered Chicken Balls)

Today I am sharing a Japanese inspired recipe but rather basting with sauce made of sake and mirin I used bottled bbq sauce while grilling it.

Chicken Yakitori are soft chicken meatballs skewered and grilled with sweet soy sauce.


For chicken balls:
500 grams of ground chicken meat
2 eggs
1/2 teaspoon of salt
2 spoons of flour
1 white onion, grated or finely chopped
1 spoon of corn starch
6 spoons of bread crumbs
3 slits of sliced ginger
bamboo skewers
onion leeks, sliced into 2 inches

For sauce:
storebought bbq sauce

Mix the first eight ingredients together. Form small meat balls.
Boil 1 and 1/2 cup of water with slits of ginger place meat balls in  the pot, low the heat and boil.
Remove when it starts floating. Cool.

Thread 3 balls on a bamboo skewer with onion leeks in between, brush them with bbq sauce. Grill the skewers till golden brown, then flip them over, brush with bbq sauce again. Grill until done.

Tip: The key to soft and juicy meatballs is the grated onion and amount of fat in the ground chicken.
