Recipe of the Day

Yakitori- Japan-Guide

Another favorite of ours, it is quick, easy, and cheap. Great for parties and social gatherings. This common Japanese street food is usually made from chicken, and not just the meat. One of the more common versions contains the "giblets." The version we are posting today is just for the meat, but feel free to experiment and see what you like! Photo courtesy LWY
