Yakitori Chicken (Skewers)

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by Jubes

Great as a main meal with some rice and veges or as a fingerfood appetizer. Use a gluten-free soy sauce if cooking gluten-free (Aussies- Chang's brand is currently gluten-free). Bottled crushed ginger can be used in place of the fresh grated ginger. Bamboo skewers should be soaked in water for 5 minutes before using to stop them catching alight during the cooking time

Oh my goodness, these were so flavorful - of course, they are my favorite flavors, soy and ginger! I marinaded my chicken pieces for about an hour and a half, which might have made them more flavorful than the recipe would normally be. I used honey in place of the sugar. Would certainly make again! Made for ZWT6.
