  • Step 1

    Add the soy sauce, sugar, garlic, mirin, honey, garlic and ginger to a pan. Bring to a boil, turn the heat down and simmer for 5 mins stirring occasionally.

  • Step 2

    Mix the cornstarch and water and add to the pan. Whisk and remove from heat. Set the sauce aside to cool.

  • Step 3

    Dice the chicken thighs into 1/2 inch squares. Marinate in 2/3 of the sauce for at least 2 hours. Keep the rest of the sauce for glazing the chicken.

  • Step 4

    Divide the marinated chicken between 8 skewers, preheat the Ninja on grill and cook on high/max with the lid closed for 10 mins. During the cooking process glaze the chicken with the remaining sauce every 3-4 mins using a brush.
