Yakitori means "grilled chicken" and is the Japanese counterpart of the shish-kabobs.
1. First, you need to soak the bamboo sticks in water, or wrap their ends with tin foil, to prevent them from burning.
2. Cut the chicken breasts to approximately 1-inch chunks and marinate them with the rest of the ingredients for 30 minutes, covered, in a refrigerator.
3. After that, thread the chicken on the skewers and grill the chicken yakitori over medium heat until the chicken is completely cooked.
4. Serve the chicken yakitori with white rice or on its own. It goes well with sake, beer or dry white wine.
Cooking tip: Instead of grilling, chicken yakitori can be prepared broiled in the oven.
