Cut chicken thighs into 1" cubes, and cut scallions into 1" long pieces (use thicker parts). Place alternate layers of chicken and scallions onto the skewers.

Spread oil thinly in a frying pan, and heat to medium.

Cook skewered meat at medium high heat for 5 minutes. Turn and cook another 5 minutes until browned and cooked through.

For Yakitori with salt, skewer just chicken pieces and sprinkle with salt. Cook, and serve with no sauce.

For yakitori with sauce, dip cooked chicken in the sauce, and serve.

Rice, miso soup, and a small salad make for a great meal. Gluten-free beer is optional. welcomes your comments below (registration is NOT required).
