1 Sticky Yakitori Chicken Skewers

Preheat the oven to 220°C/ 200°C (fan)/ 425°F/ Gas 7

3 Sticky Yakitori Chicken Skewers

Add the toasted sesame oilmirin, soy sauce, rice vinegar, grated ginger, grated garlic and honey to a bowl – this is your yakitori sauce

 

4 Sticky Yakitori Chicken Skewers

Cut the chicken breast[s] into bite-sized pieces

Add the chopped chicken to a separate bowl with 3/4 of the yakitori sauce (save the rest for dipping later) stir well – this is your marinated chicken

5 Sticky Yakitori Chicken Skewers

Thread the marinated chicken equally across the soaked skewers and add them to a baking tray

Tip: use baking paper to avoid mess!

Pour any remaining chicken marinade over the skewers

Put the tray in the oven for 12-15 min or until the sauce has caramelised and the chicken is cooked through (no pink meat!)
