Look, I made some Yakitori for dinner. As many of you probably know, Yakitori is grilled chicken on sticks. Basically, you skewer the chicken pieces and vegetables of your choice and start the usual grilling and basting process. I like to have my Yakitori with some steamed Japanese rice, sprinkle with some Japanese spices, and sometimes with roasted sesame seeds. This is a great comfort food for me.

(Printable Recipe)


2 Chicken Breast, boneless and skin-on, cubed about ¾ inch
2 Medium Leeks, sliced, about ¾ inch
2 Bell Peppers, cubed about ¾ inch
Shichimi (Japanese 7 spice mixture) Optional
Stainless Steel skewers

½ Cup Soy Sauce
½ Cup Mirin
2 to 3 Tbsp Sugar


In a medium pot, combine the sauce ingredients and cook over medium heat. Stir the mixture and continue to cook until the sauces reduce by half. Let cool.

Thread the chicken and vegetables onto the skewers and grill over the charcoals (if using gas grill, then grill over medium heat). Once the chicken turns white in color, baste it with the sauce and grill the other side. Repeat the grilling and basting process for about 3 times or until the chicken is fully cook.

Serve immediately with some Japanese 7 spice mixture, if desired.

I'm actually laughing at myself! What have I got into? Trying to make dumplings?? Well, I have seen my late grandmother make them a long time ago. I can remember the ingredients but not the measurements! So, it took me about two hours to come up with the perfect recipes, and I'm glad I did! It was an instant hit! They were all gone, all gobbled up! Make the dough first, add about 480 to 500g of all-purpose flour with 300ml of water. Knead the dough and let it rest. You should be able to make 40 dumplings with the dough. Meanwhile, prepare the filling for the dumplings. Click here for the dumpling wrappers video.
