Recipe

I have always loved chicken yakitori, Japanese chicken skewers, but have always been a but of a wimp about trying it at home. I just assumed it would be time intensive and tricky. Boy, was I wrong. Chicken yakitori couldn’t be easier to prepare and the whole dish comes together in under 30 minutes. The sauce for the skewers is made of soy, mirin, water, garlic, ginger, and a touch of sugar. That’s boiled down until it is nice and thick. Then it’s brushed over the skewers and dinner is ready.

Directions

  1. Thread the chicken, scallions, peppers, and mushrooms on to the skewers. Heat the oven to broil or a grill pan to medium high heat. Make sure to soak wooden skewers before using.
  2. Mix together the soy sauce, mirin, water, garlic, ginger, and sugar in a sauce pan. Bring to boil and cook for 8-10 minutes until it thickens into a glaze.
  3. Place the skewers on a baking sheet covered in foil (or on grill pan) and cook for 4-5 minutes. Flip over and cook for another 4-5 minutes until cooked through. Immediately brush with sauce and serve. For a stickier sauce, brush the skewers with sauce and place back under the broiler for 1 minute, being very careful they don't burn.
