Like ramen and sushi, yakitori in Japan means serious business. Traditionally served at izakayas, or Japanese pubs, these juicy meat skewers are glazed with a sweet-savory sauce for that smoky, finger-licking flavor.

2-serving instructions (4-serving modifications in red)

Wash produce before use


Cook the rice

  • Rinse the rice.

In a small sauce pot, combine the rice and 1¼ cups [2¼ cups] water. Bring to a boil, reduce to a simmer, cover, and cook until the rice is tender and the liquid is absorbed, 15 to 20 minutes. Fluff with a fork, cover, and keep warm. Meanwhile, prepare the rest of the meal.


Prep and skewer the chicken and scallions

  • Trim the root ends from the scallions; cut the scallions into 1-inch lengths. 
  • Set aside half the teriyaki glaze for serving. 
  • Pat the chicken dry with a paper towel. Cut the chicken into 1-inch pieces. Season lightly with salt and pepper.

Thread the chicken and scallions onto the wooden skewers and brush all over with half the teriyaki glaze. 


Cook the chicken yakitori

In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 to 2 tablespoons oil until hot but not smoking. Working in batches if needed, add the chicken skewers and cook, turning occasionally, until the chicken is browned and cooked through and the scallions are lightly charred, 4 to 6 minutes. Transfer to a plate. Add more oil between batches if needed. Wipe out the pan. While the chicken is cooking, prepare the broccoli.


Prep and cook the broccoli

  • Cut the broccoli into 1-inch florets; trim any coarse stems.

In the same pan used for the chicken skewers, warm 1 to 2 teaspoons oil over medium-high heat until hot but not smoking. Add the broccoli, season with salt and pepper, and cook, stirring occasionally, until lightly charred and crisp-tender, 3 to 4 minutes. Remove from the heat.


Transfer the chicken yakitori, rice, and broccoli to individual plates. Serve the remaining teriyaki glaze on the side for dipping.
