I use my grill every day. My favorite thing is Yaki Tori. I grill it at least once a week. Make a few veggie sticks . I use only one chicken breast, 3 oz steak and aoubt 2 cups cooked shrimp. This along with tons of veggies makes enough Yaki Tori for the entire family. (6 big eaters. ) about 4 points a serving if you use steak too.2 if itis only chicken and shrimp.
Yaki Tori chicken recipes. It is easy if you can find
the sauce. I use EBARA all natural sauce 40 calories a table spoon. It
is easy to make the sauce from scratch it with out sugar and have fewer calories. But Saki
costs a mint and I would rather buy the sauce ready made. I don't use
much for each portion. If you just brush it on each stick you won't
use more than 1/2 a tablespoon per serving .

I cut up two chicken breasts, mushrooms, onions chunks , green peppers
and red peppers.
Then I thread them on metal stick along with frozen raw shrimp. I
bush each stick with the Yaki Tori sauce and them grill them on the
George Forman type grill for 5 minutes or less. 2 points per serving if a serving is two chicken and 4 veggie skewers.

Title: YAKITORI - SKEWERED CHICKEN AND VEGETABLES
Categories: Chicken, Japanese, Barbecue
Yield: 6 Servings

40 Bamboo skewers 8" long
11 1/2 lb Chicken breast; boned,
-skinned, cut in 1" cubes
12 Scallions; cut in 2" pieces
6 sm Japanese eggplants
18 Cherry tomatoes
18 Whole mushrooms
2 tb Safflower oil for basting
Pepper
7 spice mixture
Lemon wedges
4 Green peppers; cut in 1"
-squares

TO PREPARE: Soak bamboo skewers in water for at least an hour.
Preheat broiler or start charcoal fire. On each of 18 skewers,
string 4-5 pieces of chicken alternated with 1" lengths of scallion.
To cook eggplants, ***** them in 3-4 places with a fork or a
toothpick. Skewer them whole. Hold 2 skewers in a V position and
insert them sideways into each eggplant. String the skewers in any
order you wish with green peppers, tomatoes and mushrooms.

TO COOK: Start cooking eggplant first. Brush with oil and broil
about 4-5 inches from fire until skin shrivels and eggplants get
soft. This will take 15-20 minutes. Using a small pastry brush baste
chicken with sauce and cook about 3" from heat for 5-8 minutes,
basting and turning several times until the chicken is tender and
brown. Do not overcook. Brush the skewers of vegetables with oil and
broil very briefly or just enough to brown them and heat them
though. If desired, you may brush them with the marinade. Sprinkle
the seven spice mixture to taste. Serve with boiled rice and
vinegared cucumbers.

Title: ASPARAGUS WITH CHICKEN YAKITORI
Categories: Chicken, Wine
Yield: 4 Servings

1/3 c Sake or sherry
1/4 c Mirin
1/2 c Soy sauce
2 ts Sugar
4 Boneless chicken thighs; cut
-into 1-inch cubes
1/2 lb Organic or naturally raised
Chicken livers
24 Stalks green asparagus; cut
-into 1-inch pieces

Make the Yakitori sauce in a small stainless steel pan by mixing,
sake with the mirin,soy sauce and sugar. Simmer for 15 minutes, then
let cool. (you can make the sauce ahead and store it in the fridge
if you like).

When ready to eat, preheat either a hibachi, a barbecue or an oven
broiler and soak 20 bamboo skewers in water (about 30 minutes. Toss
the chicken cubes with a couple tbs. of yakitori sauce. Rinse the
chicken livers and discard any greenish looking bits. Cut them into
1 inch pieces and put them in a bowl and toss with another 2 tbs of
yakitori sauce.

Drop the asparagus pieces into a pan of boiling water and cook for a
minute. Drain and cool under running cold water. Thread the
pieces of chicken and liver onto the skewers, alternating them with
pieces of asparagus. Bunch the ingredients close but dont overfill
the skewers: have 2-3 pieces of chicken and a couple of pieces of
liver alternating with asparagus on each one. Brush the ingredients
with some of the yakitori sauce immediately before putting them on
the hibachi. They cook quickly-in about 5 or 6 minutes-so watch
them carefully, turning as one side gets done and brush with the
sauce. Serve with rice.
