The Secret Ingredient

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup MAGGI Seasoning Sauce
  • 1/2 cup saké (rice wine)
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 1 teaspoon finely chopped fresh ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon MAGGI Granulated Chicken Flavor Bouillon
  • 1/2 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 4 (about 1 pound total) boneless, skinless chicken breast halves, cut into 1 1/2-inch pieces
  • 1 tablespoon toasted sesame seeds
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped cilantro (optional)

Make It

Step 1

Combine seasoning sauce, saké, sugar, garlic, ginger, bouillon and oil in medium bowl; reserve 1/3 cup. Add chicken to remaining marinade; toss to coat. Marinate in refrigerator for 1 to 2 hours.

Step 2

Preheat grill or broiler.

Step 3

Thread chicken onto 12 (6-inch) wooden skewers. Grill or broil chicken, turning and basting with reserved marinade, for 10 to 15 minutes or until no longer pink. Sprinkle with sesame seeds and cilantro.
NOTE:
If using wooden skewers, soak in water for 30 minutes before threading.
