Fonzy Chicken Skewers


This post is dedicated to Fonzy, an easy japanese style chicken dish.
If you get the proper ingredients, preperation and cooking will be very simple and easy, just as you requested.


This dish can be prepared one day ahead.

serves 4

Ingredients:

12 skewers (bamboo)
1 1/2 pounds boneless, skinless, single chicken breasts
1/4 cup bottled Teriyaki sauce (found at sultan center and all co-ops)
1 tablespoon vinegar
2 cloves garlic, crushed
2 teaspoons grated fresh ginger (you can use powdered ginger if fresh is not available)

vegetable oil for shallow-frying
1 teaspoon sugar
1/2 cup cornstarch

Dipping Sauce:

1 1/2 tablespoons soy sauce
1 tablespoon vinegar
1 teaspoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon sesame oil
1 teaspoon sesame seeds


Method:

- If using bamboo skewers, soak them in water for at least 1 hour before using, to prevent burning.
- Cut the chicken into strips and thread onto the skewers. Place the skewers in a shallow nonmetallic dish and pour over combined teriyaki sauce, vinegar, garlic, ginger and sugar. Cover and refrigerate for several hours or overnight.

- Drain the skewered chicken from the marinade, and discard marinade.
- Heat about 1 1/2 inches of oil in a frying pan. Toss the skewers in cornstarch and shallow-fry in the oil until well browned and tender. Drain on paper towels. Serve the chicken skewers with the Dipping Sauce.

Dipping sauce:
Combine all ingredients in a bowl and mix well.

*can be served with a bowl of steamed rice or french fries*
**The uncooked marinated skewers can be frozen**.

Let me know how it goes, and if you still think this is quite difficult, tell me and I'll post something simpler.


Enjoy...
