Japanese Chicken Tsukune

Japanese Chicken Tsukunewith Coconut Rice and Chinese Broccoli

After returning from a trip to Japan, Chef Elana was inspired to recreate her delicious memories in new Plated dishes. These tender chicken meatballs called tsukune are flavored with miso, soy, and scallion, then coated with a satisfyingly sticky glaze of soy, mirin, and brown sugar. Aromatic coconut rice and sautéed Chinese broccoli complete this sensational dinner.
