In the mood for Chinese food? How about chicken stir-fry? Put down the phone, you don’t need to order take out. We have an easy Chicken Yakitori recipe that only sounds likes it’s complicated to make.

Traditionally, Yakitori is made with Mirin, which is a sweet rice wine. Often, it’s hard to find, but Marsala is very similar and makes a great substitute. You can also use Sake if you have that on hand. Our easy-to-make “fake out, take out” is so delicious, you’ll never want to order in again.

Ingredients:Chicken Yakitori

  • 1/4 cup soy sauce (we use low sodium)
  • 1/4 cup Marsala (sweet wine)
  • 1 tbsp rice wine vinegar
  • olive oil
  • 1 pound skinless, boneless chicken breast, cut into cubes
  • 8 oz snow peas
  • 1 bunch green onions, cut into 1-inch diagonal pieces
  • 2 cups of cooked rice, we used jasmine, but this would also be excellent with brown rice


Combine soy sauce, Marsala, rice, and rice wine vinegar with two tbsp. of water in a small saucepan; bring to a boil. Reduce heat, simmer 10 minutes. Remove from heat.

Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat, add a drizzle of olive oil to pan. Add chicken to pan; cook 3 minutes on each side until browned. Transfer to a plate, set aside. Add an additional drizzle of olive oil to pan, if needed. Add snow peas and whites from the green onions; sauté 2 minutes. Add soy sauce mixture and chicken back to pan with greens of the onions. Cook for 2 minutes until liquid is syrupy, stir frequently. Place rice in each bowl; top each serving with Chicken Yakitori. Enjoy with chop sticks.
