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.

1 Cook the rice:
Preheat the oven to 400°F. In a small pot, combine the rice, 1½ cups of water, and a pinch of salt. Heat to boiling on high. Cover, reduce the heat to low, and simmer 25 to 30 minutes, or until the rice is cooked through and all the water is absorbed.

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.

While the yakitori roasts, heat some oil in a large pan on high until hot. Add the long beans and birdseye chilis and cook about 30 seconds, stirring. Season with salt and pepper.
