These are fantastic! My Sis and I used to make these all the time when we were growing up(minus the Sake) and it was one of the first things I learned to cook. Easy and delicious! Thanks for sharing!

This is great with beef kabobs as well. We had these a lot when we traveled to Japan. Just love the flavor.

I'm re-submitting this review "just in case" because it didn't come through yet, although I posted the review along with the photo yesterday evening. I made these with green onions because I didn't have any leeks. I also cooked them in the contact grill for five minutes. So easy, and so much flavor. The chicken was nice and tender. I served them with Pineapple/teriyaki sauce by katie in the UP. YUM!
