    Yakitori Kebabs with Chicken and Vegetables

    Yakitori is Japanese for marinated chicken kebabs. We have added vegetables to this easy low fat dish.

    • Nut Free
    • Preparation time: 10 minutes plus 1-2 hours marinating
    • Cooking time: 15 minutes
    • Total time: 25 plus 1-2 hours marintaing 25 minutes

    Serves: 4


    • 4 tbsp Waitrose Japanese Soya Sauce
    • 2 tbsp Yutaka Japanese Mirin
    • 1 tbsp Waitrose Pure Clear Honey
    • 2.5cm piece root ginger, peeled and finely grated
    • 1 clove garlic, crushed
    • 400g pack Waitrose British Chicken Breast Chunks
    • 4 salad onions, each cut into 3 pieces
    • 1 Romano pepper, deseeded and cut into 2.5cm pieces


    1. In a large bowl, mix together the soya sauce, mirin, honey, ginger and garlic. Add the chicken and stir well. Cover and leave to marinate in the fridge for 1-2 hours or overnight.
    2. Preheat the grill to high. Thread the chicken, salad onions and pepper pieces alternately, dividing them between 4 metal skewers, reserving the marinade.
    3. Place the kebabs on the grill rack and brush liberally with the marinade. Cook for 10-15 minutes, turning occasionally and basting with the marinade. The chicken should be cooked until the juices run clear and there is no pink meat; the vegetables should be lightly charred. Serve immediately, with Waitrose Medium Egg Noodles, garnished with salad onions.

    Cook's tips

    If you are short of time, marinate the chicken for just 20 minutes - it will still absorb a lot of the flavours. Try using a different selection of vegetables, such as yellow peppers and courgettes.
