Chicken Yakitori Skewers

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Marli

These skewers are ideal for a BBQ, the sauce makes the chicken so tender. Add garlic for extra flavour. Sake & mirin are available from Asian supermarkets.

These were pretty good! The sauce ends up tasting very sweet, not what I was expecting. I actually used chopped up Vidalia onions instead of green onions. The only thing is that they didn't cook very evenly, but that could have been my fault, too.
