Preparation

Step 1

300 g minced chicken – 1  egg – 3 tbsp Kikkoman Naturally Brewed Soy Sauce2 tsp za'atar spice – 1 pinch of ground chilli – 1 pinch of pepper – 1 ½ tbsp bread crumbs

Mix the mince with an egg, Kikkoman Soy Sauce and spices. Add the bread crumbs and mix again until the mixture can be easily moulded.

Step 2

Moisten your hands and shape the mixture into neat meatballs about 3 cm in diameter. Skewer the meatballs in batches of 3 to 5 and refrigerate for 1 hour.

Step 3

100 g cranberries from the jar – 2 tbsp Kikkoman Teriyaki BBQ-Sauce with Honey1 tsp grated orange zest – 1 tbsp lemon juice – 1 pinch of dried oregano – 1  chilli pepper (optional)

Mix the cranberries with Kikkoman Teriyaki BBQ-Sauce Honey, orange zest, lemon juice and oregano. If you fancy an extra kick, add finely chopped chilli to taste.

Step 4

1 tbsp oil for greasing

Coat the meatballs with oil using a brush. Grill on a hot griddle for about 5 minutes on each side. Then brush the meatballs with glaze on each side and grill again.

Tip:

You can also use minced pork or a mixture of ground meats instead of minced chicken.

The dish can also be served with your favourite salad, and any remaining cranberry marinade doubles as a delightful dip.

As an alternative to za'atar spice you can use a combination of dried thyme, sesame seeds, sumac (or grated lemon zest), and a pinch of salt.
