Yakitori Recipe 焼き鳥- Japanese Skewered Chicken

«Yakitori» is the name of these chicken skewers in Japan. I have adapted the original marinade recipe by replacing «sake» and «mirin» (both are alcoholic beverages made from rice) with lemon juice and water.

Before you start:

  • Metal skewers are needed for cooking.


  • Marinate
  1. Mince the garlic and chili pepper, then put them in a bowl. Coarsely grind the coriander seeds and add them to the bowl. Add the cumin, ground pepper, soy sauce, sesame oil, honey, and lemon juice. Cut the chicken into 2 to 2,5 cm pieces and put them in the marinade, mix well, cover, and let stand in the refrigerator at least 1 h.
  • Grill outdoor or in the oven
  1. When ready to cook, place the chicken pieces on to metal skewers. Cook on a medium grill for about 6-8 min until the pieces are nicely coloured, turning the skewers a couple of times. Alternatively, put the skewers on a baking sheet under a preheated broiler 7-10 cm from the heat for about 6-8 min, turning the skewers a few times.
  2. Meanwhile,put the sesame seeds in a small pan and heat over medium heat a few minutes, with some stirring, until lightly coloured.
  3. When the chicken is ready, sprinkle with the grilled sesame seeds, then serve.
