Japanese Skewered Chicken

Japanese Skewered Chicken
Yakitori is a delicious delicacy from Japan that is especially popular as a quick street snack and is prepared in a variety of ways. The rules are simple: skewered chicken meat. The type of chicken meat, the seasoning and the baking method can all vary greatly. In this easy basic recipe we opt for the typical sweet-sour and slightly spicy taste that we usually associate with oriental dishes. The juicy skewers are great as an appetizer or side dish.

  • 500grams

    chickenleg, fillet,…

  • 8tablespoons

    soy sauce

  • 8tablespoons


  • 4tablespoons


  • 1tablespoon

    cane sugar

  • 1toe


  • 1cm


  • 1

    red chili pepper

  • 1tablespoon

    sesame seeds

  1. Mix soy sauce, mirin, saké and caster sugar in a saucepan.

  2. Press the clove of garlic, peel the ginger and grate finely. Also finely chop the chilli pepper (remove the seeds if desired or use only a piece of the pepper).

  3. Add the extra seasonings to the saucepan and stir. Bring to boil.

  4. Let the sauce simmer slowly until it has become a viscous sauce/marinade. Then let cool.

  5. Meanwhile, cut the chicken meat into small pieces.

  6. Mix the pieces of meat with the cooled sauce. Cover and refrigerate for at least an hour, preferably a day.

  7. Thread the meat onto small skewers. Make sure that all pieces have enough sauce.

  8. Grill the skewers briefly but vigorously on the barbecue or in the oven. Ideally they are crispy on the outside, tender on the inside.

  9. Sprinkle with sesame seeds before serving. Tasty!


Don’t have sake or mirin at home? You can replace them both with a dry sherry. The result is not quite the same, but sufficiently close to the flavors.
