Chicken Yakitori Super Simple

This week's recipe is a simple Chicken Yakitori or simply yakitori in Japanese. So, let's get started making this delicious recipe.


10 wooden skewers

4 skinless, boneless chicken thighs, cut into 1-inch cubes

4 scallions, sliced into 1-inch pieces

½ cup sake

½ cup soy sauce

3 tablespoons mirin

2 tablespoons white sugar

1 teaspoon vegetable oil, or to taste


Soak 10 wooden skewers in cold water for 15 minutes.

Thread chicken pieces onto the soaked skewers, alternating with scallions.

Combine sake, soy sauce, mirin, and sugar in a small saucepan and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 5 minutes. Reserve 1/2 of the sauce for dipping.

Heat a grill pan over high heat and lightly brush with vegetable oil. Add skewers and cook until chicken is no longer pink in the center, basting frequently with 1/2 of the sauce, 7 to 10 minutes per side.
