How to Make It

Step 1

Combine first 4 ingredients in a small saucepan; bring to a boil. Remove from heat; let stand 15 minutes. Remove ginger with a slotted spoon, and place in a medium bowl. Add 2 tablespoons soy sauce mixture, pepper, chicken, garlic, and cilantro to ginger in bowl; toss well. Cover and chill 1 hour, stirring occasionally.

Step 2

Preheat grill to medium-high heat.

Step 3

Bring remaining soy sauce mixture to a boil; cook 10 minutes or until reduced to 1/4 cup. Remove from heat; slowly add vinegar and oil, stirring with a whisk. Divide soy sauce mixture into 2 equal portions (about 1/4 cup each); set aside.

Step 4

Remove chicken from marinade; discard marinade. Thread 3 chicken pieces and 3 green onion pieces alternately onto each of 12 (8-inch) skewers. Place the skewers on a grill rack coated with cooking spray. Cover and grill for 8 minutes or until done, turning after 4 minutes and basting occasionally with 1/4 cup reserved soy sauce mixture.

Step 5

Place skewers on a serving platter; serve with remaining 1/4 cup soy sauce mixture.

This was a huge hit at our house. I substituted the sake with mirin (as that's what I had). My 11 year old daughter did most of it. I just chopped the chicken and hubby did the grilling. Served it with steamed rice with chopped scallions. Will serve it with ginger fried rice next time.

I would be nice to see cooking options for those of us who don't own a grill, especially for this issue with so many recipes made for the grill. UPDATE - these cooked up well in the oven on the high broil setting. Very smoky flavor thanks to the sesame oil!

This was a relatively easy and tasty meal. My son, who is learning to cook, made the entire thing on his own with just a little help on the grilling end from Dad.
