I love chicken yakitori more than anything and this really hits the spot for that Japanese food craving. I like to serve it with cauliflower rice fried with some of the leftover sauce like it’s chicken teriyaki.
Serves: 4 – (2 skewers per serving)
- 1 lb(s), Chicken Thigh Skinless Boneless
- 0.50 cup(s), Tamari (aka Gluten Free Soy Sauce) (I use this)
- 2 tablespoon, Sake
- 1 tbsp(s), Brown Sugar Substitute (aka Golden Erythritol or Monkfruit) (I use this)
- 2 clove, Garlic
- 1 tsp(s), Grated Ginger
- 1 tsp(s), Sesame Seeds (I use this)
- 8 small bamboo skewers (I use this)
- Wire Rack (I use this)
- Sheet Pan (I use this)
- Sauce Pan (I use this)
- Tupperware (I use this)
- Brush (I use this)
- Aluminum Foil (I use this)
- Soak the bamboo skewers in a bowl of water for 1 hour.
- In a sauce pan, combine the tamari, sake, brown sugar, smashed garlic, and ginger and bring to a boil. Then immediately turn the heat to low and allow to simmer for 8 minutes stirring occasionally.
- While the sauce is simmering, cut your chicken thighs into 1 inch cubes and place into a tupperware container.
- When the sauce is complete, set aside 2 tbsp and pour the rest over the chicken to marinade. Refrigerate the chicken in the marinade for 1 hour.
- Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
- Lay foil down on the sheet pan and put the wire rack on top.
- Divide the chicken evenly amongst the bamboo skewers – about 5 pieces per – and place them on the rack.
- Brush the chicken with sauce and cook in the oven for 10 minutes.
- Brush the chicken with more sauce and turn the skewers over and cook for another 10 minutes.
- Brush the chicken with more sauce and place the chicken on the top rack of the oven and turn the heat up to broil for 3 minutes until the chicken gets a little char on it – make sure to watch them closely so that the bamboo doesn’t catch fire.
- Serve with the reserved sauce.
