These are very similar to the chicken “yakitori” that are so popular in Japanese restaurants.


– ½ cup Japanese soy sauce.

– 1 tablespoon grated fresh ginger.

– 1 large clove garlic, peeled, minced, crushed to a paste.

– 1 teaspoon sesame oil.

– ¼ cup sake or white wine (optional).

– 2 tablespoons sugar.

– 6 tablespoons mirin.

– 3 boneless chicken breasts, trimmed, cut into ¾-inch dice.


Step 1:
Boil all the ingredients, except the chicken, until reduced to ⅓ cup and lightly syrupy. Let cool. Marinate the chicken in the syrupy mixture for 4 hours.

Step 2:
Soak wooden skewers in water for 30 minutes, then thread with the chicken pieces.

Step 3:
Grill the chicken skewers for about 3 minutes over high heat while basting with the boiled-down marinade. Serve immediately.
