The first time i ate yakitori was 10years in a restaurant in Cannes. I instantly fell in love with this dish and enjoy cooking it once in a while. This traditional Japanese skewers are often served with a cold beer , a perfect dish for any sunny days , for me another occasion to lit the barbecue.

*2 cups of light soy sauce
*2 tbsp of brown sugar
*1 tsp of finely chopped ginger
*3 tsp of finely chopped garlic
*4 bamboo skewers
1.In a saucepan , add the mirin , soy sauce,garlic , ginger and brown sugar, then cook over medium heat until it has reduced by half and become thick.

3.To cook the chicken , you can either use the grill from your oven , cook in a griddle pan or barbecue it. With each of these cooking techniques , the process is the same . Cook the chicken until colored then start brushing the glaze on both side continuously until the meat is cooked and glazed .
