Prep the chicken mixture
- If using, let the butter come to room temperature.
- Zest and juice the lime, keeping the zest and juice separate. Set aside the juice for the yakitori dipping sauce.
- Coarsely chop the cilantro.
- Cut a small corner from the ground chicken packaging and drain off any excess liquid. Transfer to a plate and pat dry with a paper towel.
Prep and roast the vegetables
- Cut the cauliflower into 1-inch florets, discarding any leaves or thick stalks.
- Scrub or peel the carrots and trim off the ends; cut the carrots in half lengthwise and then crosswise into 2-inch lengths.
- Trim the root ends from the scallions; thinly slice the scallions.
- If using, in a small bowl, mash together the butter and miso with a fork.
While the vegetables roast, prepare the meatballs.
Shape and cook the meatballs
- Using wet hands, form the chicken mixture into 1½-inch meatballs. Thread the meatballs onto the wooden skewers.
While the meatballs cook, prepare the yakitori dipping sauce.
Make the yakitori dipping sauce
- Grate or peel and finely chop enough ginger to measure 1 teaspoon.
