"One of the most popular Japanese dishes (authentic recipe). The tasty ginger and rice wine marinade can be used for meat or fish. This recipe can also be made on the grill using the marinade as a basting sauce. Serve hot with rice or noodles." — Jana Marko

1 (3 pound)
whole chicken, cut into pieces
grated fresh ginger root

Loved it! So good we choose to make it while in Japan! The authentic Yakatori joint is down the street and we're not sure we can tell a difference! We added pea pods and mushrooms as well as crushed sesame seeds. Yum! Yum! Yum!
Thanks for posting the recipe! This is even a surprisingly easy to make!
Too salty for my taste. It needed a lot of rice to counteract the salt. Steamed broccoli went well with it.
Great recipe... tastes exactly like the yakitori in Japan. You could also cut the chicken into small pieces (boneless, skinless) and after they are marinated place the pieceson skewers to BBQ. (This is how it is made and served by the street vendors in Japan) yummy.
You know, I cook a lot of asian food. Mosly japanese. This was actually quite delicious. I just made it last night and already my wife is asking for it again. i added a little sesame chile oil in place of some of the oil the recipe called for. Came out fantastic!
I'm half Japanese and eat japanese all the time, and I loved this! I added big pieces of green onion towards the end of the cooking process (I saw it that way in Japan) and it was yummy! thanks.
I did not have any saki or mirin so I just added White Wine. It turned out great! My family loved it.
This is a family favorite. I often make the marinade and put the chicken in to freeze, so I have a meal ready to go with little prep.
my food proof chicken marinade- always use this guy in a pinch- all of these ingredients are staples at my house! generally, i use honey instead of sugar (like the smoky flavor that it lends). also some chopped green onions are great with this. i generally use chicken breasts- pan fry- then cut into strips- serve over white rice- and frozen veggies- heat the marinade and add a touch of corn starch- and whalah- a teriyaki bowl!
