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!

I can't believe I haven't written a review for this yet! This has become a go to recipe for me for over a year a now. It's easy, quick and, the best part, I usually have all the ingredients on hand. This is great with steamed or sauteed green beans or grilled veggies and rice ( with some of the extra sauce on the rice). If I'm feeling especially lazy, I don't skewer the chicken and just grill the thighs whole. Thanks for sharing this!

Yum, this was super delicious. I cheated a little by using whole chicken thighs, I grilled them over direct heat at first then moved them off and used indirect. I didn't pay attention and over grilled my green onions but the centers were still tasty. Made for Culinary Quest 2016 by one of the Iota Eta Pi

This is an easy, fast and delicious recipe. I marinated the chicken for about 3 hours. Then grilled it. Then boiled down the left over marinate to pour over the rice but we really did not need it. The chicken was already flavorful. Thank you

This was an excellent recipe. Quick, easy, tasty, and different--exactly what I needed!

I cooked mine on the Foreman grill, and they came out really well! Thanks again, mianbao!
