Chicken yakitori

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.
