    mianbao's Note:

    Grilled chicken skewers popular in Japan. Chicken thigh meat, green onion, chicken liver, hearts, gizzards, chicken skin can be prepared this way. It tastes best cooked over charcoal. Mirin is a sweet Japanese sake (rice wine). Ordinary sake may be substituted for the mirin, with additional sugar. Translated from Shinkatei Hyakkajiten Vol. 1, Kodan-sha, 1967, with adaptations by me. The garlic is from a suggestion from a person selling this by the side of the street. Use standard American cups. Please use a roomy saucepan for the sauce, as it has a tendency to boil over. Watch both sauce preparation and meat grilling carefully.

      Great recipe! Quick, easy & delicious. I'm a fan of any meat on a stick but this is some next level stuff. Made as written w/garlic but had to sub white wine for mirin. Grilled over medium heat & it turned out awesome. The sweet & salty chicken with the grilled onions is a perfect combo. Definitely a keeper.

      i had to cook this on top of the stove. i cooked the chicken in a pan and took out the water that came out and as soon as there was no more water i poured some of the sauce on top and sauteed it till it caramalized. used the left over sauce to drizzle on the chicken and wow. DELICIOUS! thank you for sharing a great recipe!
