How to make it

  • Cut chicken into uniform 1½-inch pieces.
  • Place garlic and ginger in large zip lock bag. Crush with rolling pin (or wine bottle!) Add the remaining liquid ingredients. With a measuring cup scoop out 1/2 cup; set aside. Add the 1 teaspoon of peanut oil to the marinade in the zip lock bag (this helps the meat not stick on grill) Marinade chicken for 2-4 hours in refrigerator.
  • On each skewer, thread alternating pieces of chicken and scallions, pressing them together. Cover and refrigerate until ready to grill.
  • Take reserved 1/2 cup of marinade and place over medium heat and bring to boil. Reduce heat and simmer until syrupy, 5 to 10 minutes .Strain into small bowl and cool to room temperature
  • Heat an outdoor charcoal grill. Position the skewers 4 to 5 inches from the heat source, placing yakitori on grill so that ends of skewers are not over direct heat. Sear meat by continually turning skewers for about 2 minutes. Baste with sauce and turn occasionally until chicken is cooked, 8 to 10 minutes. When chicken is done it should feel firm. Take off heat and immediately glaze with reduced sauce. Serve with cucumber & sesame salad on side.

    Looks so flavorful!!! Will let you know when I try this! (UCLA just scored a touchdown with 27 seconds to go and then Tennessee tied the game-nail biting time.)

    This looks like a good version. I remember walking through the streets in Okinawa and getting these from the vendors. They are so delicious. I can't wait to try your version.
