This is a recipe for a popular Japanese snack called yakitori. If you are using bamboo skewers, soak them in water for 30 minutes before using to prevent burning.


Serves: 5 

  • 1/2 cup (125ml) soy sauce
  • 1/2 cup (125ml) sherry or white cooking wine
  • 1/2 cup (125ml) chicken stock
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 pinch garlic powder
  • 1 bunch spring onions, chopped
  • 500g skinless, boneless chicken breast fillets cut into cubes

Preparation:20min  ›  Cook:10min  ›  Ready in:30min 

  1. In a small saucepan combine the soy sauce, sherry, chicken stock, ginger, garlic powder and spring onions. Bring to a boil and immediately remove from heat. Set aside.
  2. Preheat the grill. Thread chicken pieces onto metal or bamboo skewers. Arrange on a pan that has been coated with cooking spray. Spoon 1 or 2 tablespoons of the sauce over each chicken skewer.
  3. Place the pan under the grill and cook for about 3 minutes until browned. Remove from the oven, turn over and spoon more sauce onto each one. Return to the oven until chicken is cooked through and nicely browned.
