Ingredients
  • 1 1⁄2 cups mirin
  • 3⁄4 cup soy sauce
  • 4 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 garlic clove, pressed (optional)
  • 1 lb boneless chicken thighs
  • 1 -2 green onion, in inch-long pieces (optional)
  • 8 bamboo skewers
Directions
  • Put mirin, soy sauce, sugar and garlic, if using, into a medium-sized sauce pan, and cook over medium heat until there is only half as much sauce remaining.
  • Let cool slightly while you are preparing the chicken.
  • Cut chicken into bite-sized pieces; keeping the skin on is usual in Japan.
  • Thread chicken onto skewers, alternating with green onion if desired.
  • Begin grilling the chicken skewers on both sides without the sauce, when the meat starts changing color, brush the sauce on both sides, and continue grilling, brushing on sauce about 3 times total, and turning until done.
