Yakitori is a Japanese grilled chicken skewer that makes a great party appetizer-on-a-stick and goes well with Japanese beer.

How to Make It

Step 1

Cut white and pale green parts of green onions into 1 1/2" pieces. Thinly slice dark green onion tops. Set aside.

Step 2

Combine marinade, ginger, garlic, sugar, and sesame oil in a zip-top plastic freezer bag; add chicken and 1 1/2" green onion pieces, turning to coat. Seal and chill for at least 30 minutes or up to 2 hours.

Step 3

Meanwhile, soak 8 (6") wooden skewers in water to cover for 30 minutes. Drain.

Step 4

Thread marinated chicken and green onion pieces onto skewers, discarding marinade. Grill over medium-high heat (350° to 400°) for 3 to 4 minutes on each side or until chicken is done.

Step 5

Transfer skewers to an appetizer platter, and sprinkle with thinly sliced green onions.
