These meatballs were fantastic! I baked them...no skewers and they were gone in minutes.
Japanese Chicken Meatballs (Tsukune)
From EatingWell: July/August 2011
Chicken meatballs called tsukune are a Japanese-restaurant favorite—they’re essentially a chicken sausage mixture flavored with garlic and ginger. Use flat sword-shaped skewers instead of traditional round bamboo skewers to keep the meatballs from slipping when you try to turn them. Serve with bowls of steamed rice on the side.

I did not have mirin, so I used sake instead. Also, I baked mine at 350 for 25-30 minutes without skewers. Delicious! Would be great as an appetizer for a party or gathering, as well as a dinner.
