4 chicken breasts (or 8 chicken thighs)
4 green onions (or half a green pepper)
1 tbsp sugar
2 tbsp sake (or cooking wine)
3 tbsp mirin (or 2 tbsp honey)
3 tbsp soy sauce (dark)
bamboo skewers (pre-soaked
in water to prevent burning)
Cut chicken breasts (or thighs) into bite-sized pieces. Cut green onion (or green pepper) into one-inch pieces. Skewer the chicken and onion/green pepper in alternating order. To make basting sauce, mix sugar, sake/cooking wine, mirin/ honey, and soy sauce in a pan and bring to a boil. Stir occasionally, then remove from heat. Grill the skewered chicken over hot coals, on a portable electric grill or in an oven. Baste skewers often with sauce until the chicken is cooked.
