I don’t have a video for this recipe.
If I had a photo, I would most certainly use it. That is... unless the photo I have sucks. For now, you'll just have to picture a big heaping helping of
Yakitori Chicken
...in your mind.

Yakitori Chicken

Japan is famous for the little shops that serve many incredibly delicious types of charcoal grilled chicken. The ’little’ refers to the fact that the shops can be as small as having seats for as few as 6 or 8 people. The ’many types’ refers to the many different ’parts’ of the chicken they use. For our purposes, we’ll stick with just thighs.
