      Love Yakitori and we love skewers making this the perfect recipe to try at our house. Like Pneuma used chicken breasts and found it a delicious version of Yakitori. Not having mirin on hand I used a white wine which worked for me - will be sure to have it next time around. Setting the recipe aside to use for starters the next itme we do a get together. Thank you djmastermum.

      This is different from the other yakitori I tried but delicious as well in its own right. Used chicken breast here and love it with the onions. I also used some of the extra sauce as dip and will use the rest to make another batch again. Alternating the onions and chicken gave an appetizing look to the recipe. :D Thanks for sharing this, djmastermum! Made and reviewed for Asia's Let's Get Skewered Tag Game 2008.
