Yakitori - chicken skewers



Yaki meaning grilled - chicken in this recipe. Tori is pronounced to-re and refers to the sauce.

However Yakitori refers to a grilled skewer of small pieces of meat  - chicken or pork.

Serves 4

8 small boneless chicken thighs - cut into 4 pcs each
8 green onions
8 bamboo skewers - pre soaked in water.

Tare Sauce - the glaze to baste and marinate the chicken in.


4 tbsp sake
1 tbsp mirin
1 tbsp sugar
5 tbsp tamari soya sauce
Boil for 8 to 10 minutes. Cool.

In a bowl make pieces of chicken. Cut the green onions into chunks.
Toss the marinade over it all. Keep aside for 20 to 30 minutes.
Thread 8 skewers of bamboo that have been soaked in water - this avoids them from burning on the fire.

Grill or place in the oven. Cook until cooked through.
