Recipe

I have always loved Japanese chicken yakitori but I was shocked to find out how much sugar is normally packed into those delicious little skewers.  So I set out to create a lower carb version that tasted just as delicious but without all the added sugar.  Since yakitori normally is made with mirin, a Japanese wine used often in cooking, I had to find a lower carb replacement for the mirin.  After some research and experiments, I found that simple rice vinegar with a touch of Stevia for sweetness was the perfect substitute.

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, vinegar, Stevia, water, garlic, and ginger 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.
