Chicken Yakitori Skewers
1/4 cup (60ml) sake
1/4 cup (60ml) Japanese soy sauce
2 Tbsp mirin
2 Tbsp caster sugar
6 chicken thigh fillets, cut into 2cm pieces
Ground white pepper, to season
2 green onions, trimmed, cut into 3cm pieces
2 tsp vegetable oil
1 green onion, extra, thinly sliced diagonally
# Combine the sake, soy sauce, mirin and sugar in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Bring to a simmer. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 2-3 minutes or until sauce thickens slightly. Remove from heat and set aside to cool.
# Combine the chicken and half the sauce in a bowl. Season with ground white pepper. Place in the fridge for 30 minutes.
# Thread the chicken and green onion alternately onto skewers. Heat the oil in a large frying pan over medium heat. Add the skewers to the pan and cook for 6 minutes or until cooked through.
# Transfer to a platter and sprinkle with extra green onion. Serve immediately with the remaining sauce.
