Since less than 2% of the world population actually lives in Japan we figured it would be nice to be able to enjoy yakitori anywhere in the world right from the comfort of our own kitchens. Even though yakitori is traditionally cooked on a charcoal grill most of us don't have access to one of these in our kitchen, especially one that is specifically designed for yakitori. To remedy this we worked out a cooking method similar to the traditional method but using common kitchen wares and the broiler in our oven. In Japan all parts of the chicken are used, including various organs. The following recipe uses only the white meat breast, dark meat thighs and skin.
We like to keep some tare sauce in the fridge in a squeeze bottle and use it as a condiment, like ketchup or barbecue sauce. Let us know your fun and creative ways of incorporating tare sauce into your everyday cuisine.
Here is an instructional video so you can watch us make the recipe above.
