Recipe for Japanese Grilled Chicken – This is the best thing you can cook on a skewer! If you’re planning on grilling, you NEED this recipe. (And if you don’t have a grill, just pull out your trusty grill pan!)
- 1/2 cup soy sauce
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 1/4 cup Sake
- 1/4 cup Mirin
- 1 lb chicken thighs
- 2 long white onions (or 5-6 green onions)
- vegetable oil
- Soak bamboo skewers (6" long) in water for 30 minutes.
- 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.
- Cut chicken thighs into 1" cubes, and cut onions (white part) into 1" long pieces. Skewer chicken and onions alternately.
- 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.
- Immediately dip chicken in the sauce, and serve.
