Maria's Homemade Chicken Yakitori


Chicken yakitori, otherwise known as grilled chicken skewers, is a fast and easy way to get a delicious dinner out on the table. This recipe makes the yakitori a year-round favorite by using the oven's broiler, but the skewers work out great on a grill, too. 


  • 4 chicken cutlets, cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 1 green bell pepper, cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 1 red bell pepper, cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 1 yellow bell pepper, cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 1 Spanish onion, cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 1/4 Cup soy sauce
  • 2 Tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 Teaspoon minced fresh ginger
  • 1 Teaspoon sugar
  • 1 clove garlic, minced


If using wooden skewers, soak them in water for 20 minutes

In a shallow pan, combine the chicken cubes with the peppers, onions, soy sauce, oil, ginger, sugar, and garlic.

Refrigerate for at least 1 hour. Weave the marinated chicken, peppers, and onions onto skewers.

Preheat the broiler, and place a rack in a shallow baking pan. Broil the skewers about 4 to 5 minutes on each side, or until chicken is tender. Serve on a bed of steamed rice.
