From the Test Kitchen

The word yakitori in Japanese directly translates to grilled (yaki) chicken (tori). This recipe uses a mixture similar to tsukune, or chicken meatballs, that can be grilled like yakitori, or roasted in the oven. If you have a grill, feel free to use it to cook these, but the oven and stovetop work just as well. In Japan, it’s customary to enjoy yakitori with colleagues after work with sake or beer.

3 Make the glaze & chicken mixture:
In a small bowl, make the glaze by combining half the hoisin sauce and half the soy sauce; stir until smooth. In a separate large bowl, combine the ground chicken, panko, ginger, garlic, sesame oil, half the scallion, half the cilantro, and the remaining hoisin and soy sauces. Using your hands, mix everything just until combined. Divide the mixture into 4 equal pieces, and shape them into flat, oval-shaped patties. Place the patties on a lightly oiled baking sheet, and place 2 skewers in each patty.
