Ready for an exciting journey? Japanese Yaki-tori, literally fried chicken.

It is a simple dish, but it must be prepared. Recipe for two portions made from one chicken breast and a green section of a leek. And now the sauce:

  1. Five tablespoons of soy sauce
  2. Three tablespoons of sugar
  3. Two tablespoons of mirin /it is a type of sweet rice wine/
  4. One spoon of sake /optional/
  5. One clove of garlic
  6. A slice of fresh ginger
  7. Lemon peel bar

Mix the ingredients for the sauce in a saucepan and cook for 5-10 minutes until it thickens. Leave to cool. Cut the chicken and leek into similar pieces about 5cm in length. Dip them in a sauce and stick them on the double sticks. Fry or grill for about 3 minutes on each side on strong fire, smearing them with the sauce. Glaze should be created on the surface. Sprinkle with roasted sesame seeds. Yakitori is popular in Japan as a beer snack.
