This video will show you how to make Yakitori, Japanese grilled chicken on a skewer. You can make this on a frying pan at home. So easy!

Cooking Recipe

Ingredients:
1/2 cup soy sauce (120ml)
1/4 cup sugar (50g)
1/4 cup Sake (60ml)
1/4 cup Mirin (60ml)
1 lb chicken thighs (450g)
2 long white onions (or 5-6 green onions)
salt
vegetable oil

Directions:
1. Soak bamboo skewers (6" long) in water for 30 minutes.

2. Mix soy sauce, sugar, Sake, and Mirin in a small pot, and boil for 8-10 minutes until the sauce gets a little thick. Set aside.

3. Cut chicken thighs into 1" cubes, and cut onions (white part) into 1" long pieces. Skewer chicken and onions alternately.

4. In a heated frying pan, spread oil very thinly, and cook skewered meat at medium high heat for 5 minutes. Turn and cook another 5 minutes until browned and cooked through.

5. Immediately dip chicken in the sauce, and serve.

Yakitori with salt:
1. For Yakitori with salt, skewer just chicken pieces and sprinkle with salt. Cook in the same way as Yakitori with sauce (but don't dip in sauce).
