1 1/2 c

3/4 c
soy sauce
4 Tbsp
sugar
1 clove

1 lb

How to Make Yakitori

Step-by-Step

  • 1Put mirin, soy sauce, sugar and garlic, if using, into a medium-sized sauce pan, and cook over medium heat until there is only half as much sauce remaining.
  • 2Let cool slightly while you are preparing the chicken.
  • 3Cut chicken into bite-sized pieces; keeping the skin on is usual in Japan.
  • 4Thread chicken onto skewers, alternating with green onion if desired.
  • 5Begin grilling the chicken skewers on both sides without the sauce, when the meat starts changing color, brush the sauce on both sides, and continue grilling, brushing on sauce about 3 times total, and turning until done.
