A classic Middle Eastern street food, chicken shawarma is made with large quantities of marinated chicken that are stacked in layers on a spit and slow roasted for hours.

First, the chicken is marinated in generously spiced yogurt, which tenderizes the meat while infusing it with seasoning. Then the skewers are grilled quickly over direct heat to seal in the juices before being moved to indirect heat, where the meat is gently cooked through. Thinly sliced using a long sharp knife, chicken shawarma is usually served as a wrap with greens, tomatoes, garlicky creamy toum--and of course, fries!

Yakitori Negima

Yakitori negima is one of the more popular iterations of the made-to-order grilled chicken skewers commonly enjoyed with a cold beer at bars in Japan. Featuring chicken and scallion pieces, this version calls for brushing the skewers with a sweet soy glaze (tare or teriyaki) that turns nice and caramelized on the grill. Here we call for a grill or grill pan but you can also cook them under a heated broiler or over the low coals of a campfire, turning them frequently and watching carefully to avoid scorching. You'll want to use paddle-type skewers, which are flatter than the usual kind and easier to turn look for them at Japanese markets and online.


Recipe Summary

  • Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 1 chicken (4 pounds), cut into 10 pieces (breasts halved crosswise)
  • 1/2 cup ketchup
  • 1/3 cup apple-cider vinegar
  • 1/2 cup light-brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 3 finely minced garlic cloves
  • Extra-virgin olive oil

Combine 1 tablespoon salt and 1/2 teaspoon pepper. Sprinkle mixture evenly on chicken, then set chicken on a rimmed baking sheet. Let stand uncovered 1 hour.

Meanwhile, bring ketchup, vinegar, sugar, Worcestershire sauce, and garlic to a simmer in a small saucepan. Cook, stirring occasionally, until slightly thickened and reduced to 1 cup, about 4 minutes. Season with salt and pepper, and transfer sauce to a bowl.

Heat a charcoal grill, creating a two-zone fire with vents partially open. Position coals on one side of the grill for direct high heat, and leave the other side empty for indirect lower heat. (On a gas grill, turn one side on high, and leave the other burners off.) Lightly coat chicken with olive oil and place over indirect heat. Cover and cook, turning occasionally, until pieces are cooked through and a thermometer inserted into thickest parts (not touching bones) registers 165 degrees, about 30 minutes.

Uncover grill transfer chicken to direct heat. Brush with sauce and cook, turning frequently, until caramelized and lightly charred, about 3 to 4 minutes. Brush on more sauce as pieces come off the grill, or serve it on the side.
