For the chicken:

  • 2 lbs chicken thighs (boneless skinless)
  • 1 onion
  • 1 green pepper
  • olive oil
  • wooden skewers soaked in water, 20-30 mins

For the marinade:

  • ¾ cup rice cooking wine
  • ¾ cup water
  • 1½ cups mirin
  • 1½ cups soy sauce
  • 2 scallions (green parts, finely sliced)
  • 2 Tbsp light brown sugar


    For the marinade:

    1. Combine marinade ingredients in a medium saucepan and bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce heat and simmer until the sauce has reduced by half. Stir occasionally.
    2. Remove from heat and let it cool down. Divide sauce into half, reserve for serving.


    For the chicken skewers:

    1. Cut chicken into approximately 1” pieces, marinate in half of the sauce mixture for 45-60 minutes.
    2. Quarter onion and cut green pepper into 1” pieces.
    3. Fold chicken piece in half, then insert skewer through chicken, followed with a vegetable piece (or two), then another chicken piece, then another vegetable piece until each skewer has about 5-6 pieces of chicken. Feel free to add as many veggies as desired.
    4. Brush chicken skewers with olive oil.
    5. Brush the WIRE RACK with olive oil and then place the chicken skewers on top. Place the ENAMEL TRAY under the WIRE RACK to catch drippings.
    6. Press the Airfry/Broil/Combo button 4 times (COMBO 1). Set dial for 15 minutes. Press Start.
    7. Remove chicken from oven, flip over and baste with the same marinade sauce.
