Servings: Serves 4

Cook Time: 60 minutes

Prep Time: 40 minutes


Yakitori (yah-keh-tor-ee) is a popular snack food in Japan. Serve one skewer per person as an appetizer, or two for an entrie.
1/4 cup mirin wine
1/4 cup Soy sauce
2 teaspoon Sugar
2 each Peppers, bell, yellow, cored, seeded, cut into 1 1/2-in pcs
1 1/2 lb Hannaford Inspirations bonless, skinless chicken thighs
6 each Scallion, sliced into 1 inch pieces


1. Soak 12 bamboo skewers (see page 7) in water for at least 15 minutes.
2. In a small saucepan over medium heat, stir together mirin, soy sauce, and sugar until sugar dissolves, about 2 minutes (it may come to a low simmer). Remove from heat; set aside.
3. Preheat grill to high heat. Assemble skewers: thread each skewer with a piece of pepper first, then a piece of chicken, then a piece of scallion (spear scallion piece horizontally, not through hollow part). Repeat so that each skewer has roughly three sets of each ingredient.
4. Grill skewers for 5 minutes on each side. Using a pastry brush, coat top surface of skewers with basting sauce. Let skewers grill 3 minutes. Flip and coat second side of each skewer with sauce; let grill another 3 minutes.
5. Continue to grill, flip, and brush skewers with sauce for about 5 more minutes, until basting sauce is gone, chicken is cooked through (check doneness by cutting into a piece), and a little bit of char shows up on tips of chicken and vegetables. Transfer cooked skewers to a clean plate; serve hot.
