  • Mix bread crumbs, onion, cilantro, garlic, soy sauce, sambal oelek, ginger, paprika, and coriander together in a large mixing bowl until well combined. Add chicken and mix well by hand, kneading it into the mixture.

  • Form mixture into golf ball-sized meatballs, about 1 1/2 inches round. Roll in your hands to ensure meatballs are well packed.

  • Fry meatballs in the hot oil, working in batches if needed, until well browned and no longer pink in the centers, 3 to 5 minutes.

Cook's Note:

You can use any chile pepper-based hot sauce and any cooking oil that you prefer.
