Yakitori Marinade

    5 mins

    This is a simple yakitori recipe. Use it with boneless, skinless chicken thighs and leeks on skewers on the grill. I had never heard of this food until I first went to Japan. You can get it everywhere from street vendors. Yakitori has become more popular over the last five years. I've even seen it in the frozen food section. It's easy to make if you have a grill though.

    I like this marinade. I have actually used it to marinate meat for stir-fry, not just yakitori. I didn't have sake, so I used white wine instead and it still turned out good. I will definately make again.  -  26 Apr 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Fantastic! We used this to marinate chicken for 45 minutes and then grilled it. Had a great slightly-sweet flavor to it. Will definitely use again!  -  17 Jan 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
