Time to Make: 40 minutes
¼ cup breadcrumbs
½ cup fresh cilantro
1 pound ground chicken
1 teaspoon onion powder
2 tablespoons soy sauce
Dash of ground ginger, to taste
1½ teaspoon garlic powder
Salt and black pepper to taste
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
Optional: Lime wedges, for serving
Prepare ingredients: Thoroughly rinse the cilantro and roughly chop the leaves and tender stems.
Add all the ingredients in a mixing bowl. Using your hands, gently knead the mixture until evenly combined.
Form the mixture into 1-inch diameter meatballs and set aside.
Heat the oil in a large skillet until shimmering and add the meatballs, being careful not to crowd the pan. Fry in batches, depending on the size of the skillet. Cook, turning occasionally, until the meatballs are golden brown all over and cooked through, about 10 minutes total. Transfer to a plate and keep warm.
Garnish with a bit of chopped cilantro and lime wedges.
