Airfry Negima Yakitori (Japanese Chicken Skewers)

Spread the love

Negima Yakitori is one of my all-time favorite food on a stick. Made with chicken thigh and scallions, this dish is rich in umami flavor. An absolute delight, to say the least.

This dish is also characterized by its savory-sweet taste thanks to the combination of ingredients that comprises its sauce. The sauce is mainly made with soy sauce, sugar, and other spices. You can experiment with different spice combinations for your preference. But for my take, I like it close to the original.
