Yakitori (Grilled Chicken Kebabs)

45 mins (prep 30, cooking 15)
8 ingredients
3-4 servings
Yakitori is chicken and various other things (mainly chicken, as tori means chicken) skewered, brushed with a sweetish sauce, and grilled to perfection. My version utilizes a simplified sauce and is cooked under the broiler, although it can be grilled, too. Yakitori is best eaten fresh while still very hot. Try with a Japanese beer, if you drink beer. I like to serve it as a meal, but it's intended to be more of a snack. Besides the kebab ingredients here, you can also use chicken gizzards or livers, wing drummettes, little meatballs of minced chicken, shitake mushrooms, bell peppers, or gingko nuts. The skewers should be quite small--just enough for a bite or two each.
