      Had this for supper tonight and enjoyed it very much. I only made a couple changes. I couldn't find any sake in the grocery store, so I used rice wine (not rice wine vinegar) instead -- I think that may be the same thing -- and I cut the sugar from the 2 tbsps suggested to only 1 tbsp. Had lots of the sauce left over. I mean lots and lots. Definitely will go into our regular rotation.

      This was a tad sweeter than a traditional Yakitori but I loved that about the recipe and thought the basting plus sugar gave it a great slightly caramelized taste. The extra sweetness makes it go really well with a salad and makes for a great summer outdoor dish.

      This was a little different than the Yakatori Chicken I am used to at the Japanese restaurant, but had a great flavor and was very easy to make. I cooked these in my griddle skillet because we are in the middle of a thunderstorm. I basted them often so there was a good coating of sauce on the chicken. I had them with your Siu Mai or Siomai (Dim Sum Dumplings) Siu Mai (Dim Sum Dumplings) and steamed rice. Thanks for a great dinner, Pneuma. Made for March, 2009 Aussie/NZ Swap.
