Real yakitori chicken wings should be deboned in a certain way. I watched this video a few times and tried it out for myself, let’s just say I need a little more practice.

 

Yakitori marinade:

  • 1 tablespoon wasabi paste
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 cup soy sauce
  • 1/3 cup brandy (you can’t find mirin in Bulgaria)
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 1 squirt lemon juice
  • a little bit of flour

Marinate the chicken over night. Remove the chicken from the marinade and place the juices in a small pan. Cook the marinade until it boils then remove from heat and gently stir in a small amount of flour to thicken the sauce, use this sauce to baste your vegetables while cooking.

If you are lucky enough to own a BBQ, grilling your yakitori is the best way to go. I cooked everything in my little oven at a very high heat and the results were great.

Don’t forget to soak your skewers before cooking, you don’t want to set them on fire!
