Ground Chicken Miso Tsukune Patties

Ground Chicken Miso Tsukune Patties

This is a robustly-seasoned tsukune flavored with miso. I used green onions but you can use shiso leaves instead.

Ingredients: 2 servings (around 6-7 patties)

Ground chicken
100 g
1 tablespoon
1 teaspoon
Soy sauce
1 teaspoon
1 tablespoon
Green onions (sliced)
2 tablespoons


1. Mix the miso, soy sauce, and sake in advance.
2. Mix the chicken into the sauce from Step 1 and add the katakuriko and green onion. Mix up from the bottom to incorporate air.
3. Spread oil in a pan and fry the meat mixture shaped into patties over medium to low heat. Cook until they are cooked through and both sides are golden.
4. If you want the insides to be fluffy, cover with a lid. If you prefer a springier texture, don't cover them up.

Story Behind this Recipe

I wanted to make a ground chicken dish to pack in bentos.
