  • In a small saucepan combine the soy sauce, sugar, sake, and mirin. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat, turn heat down and simmer for 5 minutes.
  • Meanwhile pre-heat oven broiler and prepare chicken.
  • Skewer chicken and onions, alternating each, so you have 4-5 pieces of chicken and 3 pieces of onion on 1 skewer. Place skewers on a heavy-duty rimmed sheet pan. Place pan under broiler and broil chicken about 4 minutes per side.
  • During the last 3 minutes of cooking, brush the skewers with the glaze on both sides, turning them often, so they don’t burn. Brush the skewers with the glaze a second time in the final minute of cooking.
