There is nothing so tempting as the aroma of grilled chicken wafting down the streets of Tokyo.

Serves 4


8 boneless, skinless chicken thighs

¼ cup sake

¼ cup mirin

¼ cup soy sauce

2 tablespoon honey

shichimi pepper

lemon wedges for serving

8 bamboo skewers, soaked in water


Combine sake, mirin, soy sauce, honey in a bowl.Place the chicken and marinade for at least 2 hours.

Preheat the broiler to the highest. Thread the chicken onto skewers. Brush the remaining marinade over the kebabs. Place on a baking sheet and grill for 5 minutes, then turn them over and grill for 3 minutes.

Remove from the broiler, sprinkle with shichimi if you like and serve immediately with lemon wedges.
