Chicken Yakitori recipe

Chicken Yakitori

These little skewers of succulent marinated chicken are fantastic any time any day. Make a whole lot of them, they are great to take to work for lunch and if you pop a few in your childrens lunch boxes they will be very grateful… you may even get a car wash. These are great for the stove or the braai, can be prepared ahead of time and then take just 5 minutes to cook. (2 people)

What you need

500g chicken breast halved and sliced about 4cm thick
4 tablespoons teriyaki sauce
4 tablespoons honey
1 teaspoon crushed garlic
1 teasponn fresh grated ginger

Bamboo skewers

The process

You want to split the chicken breasts through the center and then cut into strips, so each breast should give you 4 x 4cm wide strips.

Mix all of the marinate ingredients together in a bowl, give it a whick and add the chicken. Mix the chicken around a bit to cover each piece in the marinate. Cover with cling film and place in the fridge for a few hours, overnight if you can.

Thread the chicken onto skewers and cook in a hot grill pan for about 2 minutes on each side. (soak the skewers in water if you are doing them on a braai)

Serve them with chinese fried noodles or egg fried rice, or just as they are for finger food.

These are very good.
