Chicken Yakitori


3/4 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup sugar
1 Tbsp canola oil
1 clove garlic, minced
1/2 tsp ginger
4 to 6 chicken thighs
6 to 8 green onions
bamboo skewers, soaked in water overnight


In a large ziploc bag, mix soy sauce, sugar, oil, garlic and ginger.

Cut chicken into bite-sized pieces. Cut green onion into 1" pieces. Place chicken and onions into the bag with the soy sauce mixture. Seal the bag and smoosh the mixture around so that every nook and cranny of the chicken gets touched by the marinade. Allow everything to marinate for at least 30 minutes.

Skewer the chicken, alternating with a green onion.

Oil the grill and grill on medium heat. You want a nice sizzle when you put them down on the grill. It should only take about 3 minutes per side.


Bake it in the oven. Broil at 5" from the heat source for 3 minutes and flip the skewers allowing them to broil for another 3 minutes.
