Yakitori - Japanese Grilled Chicken

*** Recipes Tutorials ***

Yakitori is a simple and DELICIOUS Japanese street food of grilled chicken, served either shio-style (with salt), or tare-style (with a mirin/sake/soy/sugar sauce). Typically, yakitori is made from bite-sized chicken pieces, scallions.
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup mirin
  • 1/4 cup sake
  • 2 Tbsp granulated sugar
  • 1 - 1 1/2 lbs boneless, skinless chicken thighs, cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 1 bunch green onions, white part only, cut into 2" lengths
  1. Combine the soy sauce, mirin, sake & sugar in a small pot; cook over medium heat until reduced by 1/2. Remove from heat and let cool slightly. 
  2. Meanwhile, soak your bamboo skewers in water to prevent them from burning. 
  3. Skewer the chicken and green onions.
  4. Heat up your grill and add the skewers. Sprinkle a small amount of sea salt on each skewer, covering all sides lightly. Grill the skewers for about 10-15 minutes per side over indirect heat or until done.
  5. Once done, dip the skewers into the prepared sauce (or just brush it on), then grill for about 45-60 seconds per side over DIRECT heat, brushing on additional sauce as needed.
